Windows 95 Turns 20 Today

It's Windows 95's birthday today! The operating system launched twenty years ago today on August 24th 1995.

Accompanied by an extensive marketing campaign,[6] Windows 95 was a major success in the marketplace at launch and shortly became the most popular desktop operating system.[citation needed] It also introduced numerous functions and features that were featured in later Windows versions, such as the taskbar, the 'Start' button, and the way the user navigates.
