Microsoft has always had a complex love-hate relationship with different versions of Windows.
Forced to develop successive iterations, the company watched horribly how the hearts of its users were changing at a different pace and not all of them updated to the latest version.
Perhaps the most blatant and hurtful example for Natya Nadella is that of Windows XP, one of the most admired versions of users, to the point that forced Microsoft to take drastic measures and force its closure.
We will not say that the same thing happens with Windows 95, but in the world of technology nostalgia is a degree, and this version has I returned to the joy of many.
The developer of the message platform Slack, Felix Rieseberg, wanted to bring a sincere homage to this successful version programming. A simple application that makes Windows 95 astonishing on our computers.
It is a development that takes up just 129 megabytes and can be installed on PC and Mac without distinction, making it possible to travel back in time for a while and forget that we are in 2018.
Rieseberg has published its open source project on Githubpara, so that everyone can enjoy it completely free of charge.

And it is not a simple aesthetic dressing: with the app you can run native applications of the moment, such as the famous minesweeper, the notebook or the famous paint that gave us so much satisfaction; Unfortunately, Internet Explorer is present, but you can not load web pages.
The application that emulates this version of the platform takes barely 200 MB of RAM and if something does not work as it should in its humble ambitions, it is enough to restart the application, so that everything works again.
This development was received with open arms by the fans of technology in general, and even the own Rieseberg tried a little further to try out the well-known Doom game, with the surprise that it worked, although it has recognized that it "By chance" and that its effect "It was a joke."
It's not the first time that we've brought Windows 95 back to life and in fact another experienced programmer has put it into the small screen of the Apple Watch and we suspect that we'll see more surprise features from previous versions of Windows on different computers.
