Posted on You Tube on March 6, 2016. When my son was in high school the school got new computers. The school principle gave my son one of the old computers, with Win 95. We could not do much with it because at the time we did not have internet.

I'm a teen, and I've run Windows 95 in a virtual machine. These kid's reactions are quite different from mine.

Computers have come a long way, and yet a lot is still the same. We're still a ways off from having Star Trek level computers though :(.

For those who may not know. This is why the 'reaction' to the original video posted.

Fine Brothers spark fury with YouTube trademark attempt

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
Andrew Brown (1938-1994)


A learning experience is one of those things that say, "You know that thing you just did? Don't do that." Douglas Adams (1952-2001)


"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination circles the world." Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

It's funny how much technology has advanced in the last 20 years. From DOS and disk swapping to load programs to the current operating systems that are just point and click.

I went to an indoor venue (convention centre) for my work in or around Sep/Oct 1995 for the release of Windows 95. Late release because of bugs, almost became Windows 96, lol. This in Brisbane, state capital of Queensland, Australia.

 

We all left with a sample bag (plastic bag of goodies such as a child might collect at a fair or carnival), after a state of the art display.

 

Theme song was "Start Me Up" by the Rolling Stones, all about the Start button, good choice.

 

The mantras chanted were point and click, and plug & play.

 

Good Topic, Q-E, takes me back :thumbup2:

It would be funny to see these students reaction to the DOS disk swapping. Loading DOS in order to be able to use any other software. I had a commodore64 when I was younger which had a tape drive. That was a fun piece of technology to use.
