Happy 25th birthday to Windows 95!

It's not Linux or FOSS of any kind, but its design metaphors heavily influenced nearly every desktop interface to come after.

It (or one of its later W9x descendants) were also the first OS for a large number of people, including the person writing this toot 😊.



...and yes, I just had to redraft this toot. Thanks to people who very quickly pointed out that 2020 - 1995 does not equal 15. 🙃

@PINE64 in my mind, 1995 is still just 5 years ago, to be fair. 😃😃

My brain is stuck in the year 2000.
