It was during one of these informal visits that the one of my colleagues reported that he saw that one of the members of the partner team had a Gary Larson cartoon from The Far Side depicting a group of scientists studying a multi-stage rocket ship they just assembled, but the stages are connected all crooked. One of the scientists says, "It's time we face reality, my friends. … We're not exactly rocket scientists."
The comic was "enhanced" a bit by the partner team. They added a sign on the wall of the laboratory that says Windows 95 Development, and the stages of the rocket are alternately labeled 16-bit and 32-bit. The graffiti were clearly poking fun at Windows 95's attempt to straddle the 16-bit and 32-bit worlds.
The Windows 95 team knew how to take a joke, and for a time, they adopted "Hey, we're not rocket scientists" as a catch phrase.
Following up on that article from 2010: Microsoft ran a free seminar on Windows 95 development for Macintosh programmers at the 1995 MacWorld Expo. Upon successful completion, participants received T-shirts with the slogan "Windows 95 sucks less."
