    Yes and I remember the big huge floppy discs before regular floppy disks. Eventually USB and external hard drives made them obsolete.

    The computer our family had in the early 90s was so slow by todays standards but still fun at the time. It wasn't until '97 when we finally got a Gateway desktop with a Pentium III processor that I was able to enjoy more PC games.

    I thought the jump to Windows '98 was even better than 3.1 to '95. I did the majority of my PC gaming and have the best memories during the lifespan of Windows '98 and Windows XP. Basically the time before Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, and other social media really took off. Online gaming seemed more special and niche compared to how easily accessible and commonplace it is today.

    I also remember having the early America Online version 2.0 and 3.0. You had to dial a specific locations number for dial up and heard the classic "you've got mail". The early days of AOL up until versions 9 or 10 brings back a lot of good memories for me. It was early social media combined with a good time in PC and console gaming.

    do you remember the zip drives? i think they were there before the external HDDs caught on and after the discs/floppies.

    Went through Windows 95, Millennium, XP and stopped at Vista. After that, just been running Mac. But I wanna build my own PC rig. My friend had a large collection of floppy disk games. Some with extremely generic sounding titles. One of them for example was called "Dogfight" I think it was even color coated in red irrc, but that's what it was called. And it was an old WW2 airplane game lol. Millennium was a little better. Got to play some C&C on it. Man it's crazy how my phone is a way better computer than Windows 95 lol.

    edit: holy $#@!, just found the old game I used to play LOL



    My gosh, it looks so bad!

    Holy $#@!, you knew dog fight too? I used to love a game on Windows 98 where you flew an old war plans and you had to take off out of a hanger and drop bombs on bases and shoot other planes! It must be the same as I remember the little red plane. I was terrible at it

    Those were in my arrow using days rather than WASD


    Edit: looking at that video I don't think that's the game I used to play.

    In my house we went from BBC Micro > MSDOS > 95 > 98 > XP > 7 > 8/8.1 > 10

    lol I remember Windows 1.04. At the time it was competing with something called Digital Research's GEM (which actually was better imo - a bit like the VHS/Betamax story), but that got spanked a bit by Apple as it looked almost the same

    ​aka Sparc

    Well I had an Intel P3 processor in '97 so I don't know. I was only 11 at the time we got the computer. All I knew was that it was a lot better than the computer we were using since '92-'93. You had to call and special order the PC to your liking and then wait a few weeks/months until it showed up. I'll never forget how excited I was to see this huge Gateway computer box arrive. All my friends had better computers than me at the time. Finally for a brief period of about a year, I had the best computer out of all my best friends. lol

    Millenium edition really sucked IMO. XP was great except for how it wouldn't play some Win '95-'98 era games. Vista was the last one I used on a laptop but I didn't care for it. I use a Mac now but thinking about going back to Windows because so many old games are available. Plus I've been informed about how you can emulate older operating systems like '98 so that's a plus.

    FYI, Windows '95 didn't work for me in the browser but then again I'm using a Mac.

    My friend had an Intel 486 33Mhz when Doom released. Back then there was loads of CPU manufacturers cyrix rings a bell.

    From what I can remember from school either IBM or Intel were looking for software company to produce a home OS that everbody could use. They asked a few companies and Microsoft won the contract. Whatever decade this was I have no idea it's what a tutor in college told me.

    Hence the billions of dollars they made from the partenrship.

    FYI, for those using Macs, try playonmac.com and just make sure you pick the appropriate OS (Win 95, 98, XP, etc.) in the Wine config. It's a free 215mb download followed by another 65mb download of XQuartz. I've been enjoying some Win '95 era games on my Mac lately!

    Use DOSbox for your old games like Doom or commander keen. I think they do Mac and Linux versions.

    I remember using 56k on one of those p2p apps and thinking wow 7KB per second!
