Microsoft showed how the design of Windows has changed over 25 years
Microsoft is celebrating the 25th anniversary of Windows 95. In honor of the anniversary, the SoftMaker released a short video demonstrating the evolution of the interface of the popular operating system. The video footage touches on key design elements of the desktop OS that can create nostalgia for experienced users and allow everyone else to appreciate how Windows has changed over the course of two and a half decades.
In a short 38-second video, the company showed the changes that have undergone over the years to the famous Start menu, the Trash icon, and some stock applications, including pre-installed games such as Solitaire and Klondike. The transformation of the Windows logo from a flag into four blue squares, as well as a change in the design of the taskbar, did not go unnoticed.
The Windows 95 operating system was introduced on August 24, 1995. The current version of the OS called Windows 10 appeared twenty years later - in July 2015. As of today, Microsoft continues to develop the current version and has not yet announced a replacement, limiting itself to regular updates.
