A Trip Down Memory Lane


While waiting for Visual Studio to repair whatever was causing deploys to the emulator to fail, I came across this post containing images of Windows boot screens over time.  I know I'm giving my age away, but the only one I don't remember is the first.  If you're interested you can find a few more here.  For those of you who think Windows 95 was the first version of Windows, take a look at the Windows 2.0 UI.  Imagine...Windows and applications running in 640K.  Of course, we didn't have Solitaire then either.  One of the first things I remember doing after coming to work for MS was running Excel in Windows.  The experience was unique because you typed excel.exe at the command prompt and it booted Windows 2.11 prior to starting Excel. 

Good times, good times.
