    Dunno if it's been posted before, but, however, we all like to go back in time and revisit the foundations of what our systems were then.

    Blimey - this is like recent history to me! I guess I am getting old :( I first used Windows 3.1 after various DOS variations and have to admit that at that time I found OS/2 far preferable to use - this was before "Chicago" AFAIK...

    Really not sure why this should be exclusively for "geeks" and even less sure why that should exclude "girls" - even I know that geeks can be both male and female....

    And your point is? I'm 24 and I've never used it. I guess that just means, wait for it, I never used Windows 95 :p :lick:

    I never really started using computers until probably Windows 98SE

    Used 3.1 for about a year before upgrading to 95 using the Floppy disks. This was when I was 8 I think.

    I remember hacking up the registry to see what happened, then re-installing it many a nights as a punk kid.


    112MB install, what was the last release size for Vista again? Hell for that matter the best I have ever done to a decent stable XP startup is about 75MB.
