Microsoft Windows 95 originally launched 20 years ago back in 1995 as the name suggests, and for those interested is now capable of being run and used within a browser window thanks to a resourceful 19-year-old developer named Andrea Faulds based in Scotland.
Faulds has been able to get full Windows 95 functionality via a browser window without the need for any plug-ins to be installed or setup to take place by viewing parties.
Windows 95 merged Microsoft’s formerly separate MS-DOS and Windows products. It featured significant improvements over its predecessor, Windows 3.1, most notably in the graphical user interface (GUI) and in its simplified “plug-n-play” features. There were also major changes made to the core components of the operating system, such as moving from a mainly co-operatively multitasked 16-bit architecture to a pre-emptively multitasked 32-bit architecture.
