Interesting: Windows 95 turns 10 today

At slashdot they mentioned that Windows 95 was launched 10 years ago. I remember life before Windows 95 and struggling with Windows 3.11. As a programmer, Windows NT and later Windows 95 really were a real blessing. The first computer I ever used was the Apple II circa 1980. I remember devouring their programming in BASIC book.
I also remember playing with Linux version 0.95 on floppy disks around 1995. My 486 didn't like X windows so I installed just the command line part of Linux. And now I'm running on Ubuntu Linux. I would say that on Linux, things have improved far more than they have on Windows!
