Think my friend had it on their Windows 98 PC. Never used it or looked at it though. I'll watch all the old Windows 95 stuff later. I miss the old days of computing It can't have been as bad as Microsoft Bob... or can it? Must say I never used the Briefcase or Microsoft Network features. Wasn't the briefcase more a business users' feature?

Ahh, Hover. I used to spend ages playing that game, and it took me years to work out how to get the flag on the top level of the third scenario. Eventually someone told me about the springs I'd been picking up along the way.

Anyone here use Netscape or even Mosaic for web browsing in the 90s? My IT Law lecturer mentioned those browsers the other day.

Anything is better than W8!

But seriously, my first home PC was a Packard Bell with Navigator and a US Robotics external 56k Dial-up.

'Navigator' was an amusing part of the Bloat and was consigned to the attic very quickly.

Games of the time (late 90s) which grabbed us:
Doom
C&C
The Sims
Lemmings
