Bill Gates: Windows 95 Was 'A High Point'

I would call Win 95 a high point also.  I lived near Toronto at the time and remember the unfurling of a huge Win 95 banner down one side.  There were events everywhere.  MS was really at their zenith. The excitement around that launch was like nothing since.  I believe I got swept up and installed it immediately but shortly after removed it.  Couldn't get used to the interface.  Eventually for one reason or another I had to and did go back to it.  Wasn't the greatest or most stable OS and was kind of a half breed at that, but man.. what I wouldn't give to feel the anticipation again, the difference between it and DOS.  Nothing released on either PC or Mac has come close.

I have a "Windows '95 = Macintosh '89" pin on my iMac G4, as seen here:
