10 years of Windows 95

It’s hard to beleive that it’s been 10 years since millions of little blue boxes were
opened around the world, giving us Windows 95 and all of it’s innovations. Things
were certainly different back then before broadband, Google, VoIP, Scoble.
I wonder how many clicks of the Start menu it’s been since? I think the feature that
had the most impact for me was the integrated dialer for interenet access. At the
time ISP’s were trying to support a variety of PPP/SLIP dialing applications. A dial
and a browser in the OS? Now that was innovation!
