Windows 95 Beta

Recommended Posts

0sit0    177

I used a computer back in my country, lol i guess it was MS-DOS, but maybe it was Q-Basic or something like that, lol i was too small to remember :D

then i came here and started with:

- Windows 98

- Windows 2000 (made an upgrade without knowing anything about Upgrades or drivers, lol)

- Upgraded it to Windows Me (beta), lol what a POS :)

- Windows 2000 again after i researched and understand everything about drivers and hardware, lol

- Windows Whistler - My fave forever!

- Windows XP - The Best ever! no problems for now :) and real fast, lots of options! (Using now)

- Windows Server 2003 - Its nice but is not for me :)

- Windows LongHorn - i dont like the GUI, but i do like the windows movements they are sweet!

I have used Linux is good but I dont like it much, and believe it or not I have never seen a Mac ever in my life in front of me, lol im dying to see one :cool:

that's my Record, lol

I can't remember the name, possibly Nashville, but I think the web integration started out as a standalone addon, or it was early in beta testing. I think there is actually a thread about it on the OSBetaArchive site but I'm too lazy to look it up right now. :)

MS added that integration crap in the beginning, then took it out because it didn't work right, then at the last minute, like in RC 1 they added it again, and made the same stuff available for 95 via IE 4.

There is very little different about 95 and 98, mainly some new drivers (usb) and a few new GUI options.

98 was worth about $.10 as an upgrade from 95 :p

Right, you can get the formerly-Nashville UI for free with IE 4.01.

I've still got IE 4.01 installed on my Windows 95 OSR2 machine.

I've loved the shell intergration since I saw the first screenshots. Fantastic concept! (Ugly usage, worse in beta) They're in book... Maybe I'll post them here...

Yeah, chicago looks like Windows 95ed 3.11 - REALLY WEIRD ;-))))

/Raptor

That's pretty much what it was at the time. I remember testing it back in late 1994. It was pretty much 3.1 with a 32-bit Explorer (still utilizing Win32S for those who remember it !)
