Happy 25th birthday to Windows 95!

On this day in 1995, Windows 95 was released. Windows 95 included new features such as the taskbar and start menu, and it was the first version of Windows to run as its own operating system, rather than on top of MS-DOS. It was also the first 32-bit, rather than 16-bit, Windows operating system.

Support for Windows 95 ended, along with several other Windows versions, on the 31st December 2001, however Windows 95 remains a key point in the history of Microsoft Windows.

Here are some pictures of Windows 95:
