On August 24, 1995, Microsoft released Windows 95, selling a record-setting 7 million copies in the first five weeks.
To run Windows 95, you needed a PC with a 386DX or higher processor (486 recommended) and at least 4 MB of RAM (8 MB of RAM recommended). Upgrade versions were available for both floppy disk (remember those?) and CD-ROM formats.
Windows 95 marked the introduction of the taskbar, Start menu, and minimize/maximize/close buttons on each window.
I was there, and you?
