If you are still a big fan of the first graphic version of Windows and want to run Win 95 in your previous version, the most advanced, Windows 10, MacOS and Linux operating systems, as an executable program, then the easiest solution is now available.
I know that writing about a program that was launched 23 years ago seems obsolete, but there are still many enthusiasts who still love the old technology anthologies.   If you do not know , Win95 was released exactly on August 24, 1995.
There are many reasons why I am writing about this topic today, like:
- I really wanted to know how the first version of them The most popular operating system in the world is it looks like its first graphical user interface.
- I wanted to show my children and learn their basic principles.
- The third purpose of installing and using the Windows 95 application in Windows 10 and MacOS was to show my friends how the companies of the past wanted to deliver the real products and solutions instead of selling an operating system full of bloatware and crapware.
You may not agree with me at this time. But just think twice and you will agree with me up to 50% at least.
Today we receive updates on our laptops every two days, but we do not know what we are receiving. There are no really useful things in these updates. When you read the long update documents, you will find only one thing: this is a security update.
I want you to go to the era of the technology of the Chilean culture era and let you play with the basic version of paint, Minesweeper, Solitaire, and games of hearts.
I know we can not override the importance of these modern operating systems, especially after the advent of this extremely fast Internet, but at least we can show our children what we have been using in our childhood. In the future, we will have some form of Windows software in our house, such as coffee cups, teddy bears, etc.
