heheh, just kidding really. I am a big fan of August 24th 1995.
It was my 14th Birthday.

Seriously tho, and I mean it this time. I think Windows95 was a turningpoint, I remember seeing screenshots of Doom running in a Window. Doom was the dogs bollox at the time of the preview, must have been a year or two before its release.

The increase in ease of use between Windows 3.1 and Windows95 is phenomenal and also you could make a funky little mace thing your Quake icon ;)
So it had a few bugs, but what doesn't ;)

No it isn't...It's codenamed Longhorn (2003) and the version after that is codenamed BlackComb (2005). I think they use popular mountains in the US as their codenames now....:)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
