50 yards for reshowing the product.

I wish I still had my PC Gamer that pitted Win95 against OS/2 Warp.

Back in high school the bass player in my band switched to BeOS for a while and tried to convince all his friends to follow. Makes sense, BeOS was a pretty bass player OS in retrospect.

That's like pitting Ben Stein against Steven Hawking.

I used BeOS for a while but the networking support was never good enough for me so I gave up and switched back to Linux, which also had shitty hardware support at the time but at least it supported my goddamn ne2000 Ethernet card.

BeOS lives on: https://www.haiku-os.org/

BeOS was cool because it was the most music production oriented OS at the time outside of the Atari ST. I almost set it up on an old tower 5 or 6 years ago, maybe now that virtual machines are actually practical on a laptop I should finally try it. Ixm already doing a lot of CGI tinkering in an NT 4 vm, itXd be easy enough to add another.

Orca Watersport. Moby Dick.

the first computer our family ever bought was a windows 95 computer with windows at home.

I think we were completely bored with the whole package within a few days, though a few of the creative/art games had replay value.

AOL was why we got a computer in the first place.

You could watch 8 seconds of a cheetah running in Encarta 95 or go to Heckler's Online on AOL. Not to mention }{3LLrAisEr and the world of punters.

You missed out Holmes.

My family's first computer had Windows 95. My siblings and I did more gaming on the DOS side than the Windows side. There was almost nothing available for Windows at the time, so we didn't use it a whole lot once we got bored with the Encarta package.

Of course that all changed when our parents finally signed up with an Internet provider a couple years later.

Old_Zircon - 2014-11-26

I still use DOS (or at least DOSbox/console) pretty regularly for non gaming purposes.

Fury3 was terrible, but Terminal Reality went on to make RoadKill, one of the most underrated and excellent games of the time. The best car combat game no one has ever heard of.

infinite zest - 2014-11-26

Roadkill was awesome! I was white elephanted a 10 dollar gift certificate to Electronics Boutique once so I got Roadkill and some other game. I wish I still had it.

StanleyPain - 2014-11-26

Yeah me too, I have no idea what happened to my copy and since there was never a PC version its one of those things that's difficult to just pirate as a GOG or something.

20 years later and people STILL don't know how to use the context menu key.

That guy - 2014-11-26

do what now?

Hooker - 2014-11-26

20 years later and I just look at my keyboard and was surprised that I had it.

Seems pretty fucking useless.

boner - 2014-11-26

The alternatives at the time, at the same price point, were pretty dire in comparison.

Probably needs the 'puns' tag cause they're just swimming in them

Old_Zircon - 2014-11-26

I opted for "what" instead but in retrospect you're right.

Boomer The Dog - 2014-11-26

My mom used 95, but just for pictures, music, email and the web.

That whole thing is like a hustle, no time to breathe or think, unless someone re-edited it to be that way.


Syd Midnight - 2014-11-26

the fuck?

Herr Matthias - 2014-11-26

so...who wants to count the number of times that "fwoop" "pop-up" noise (like at 1:01) plays in this video. You get a prize.
