You Can Now Enjoy The Wonders of ‘Windows 95’ as an App on Your Modern Computer!

Enjoy the above video first. It’s quite a treat.

Now, back in the days of my youth, when it came to personal computer technology, Windows 95 was the end-all, be-all. At the age of 9, I was dumbfounded that the smoothness, organized, and crisp structure of the operating system.
