    Microsoft's Windows 95 launched 20 years ago today
    Twenty years before it launched Windows 10 -- in a very different time and place -- Microsoft launched Windows 95.

    That was the reaction of one of many who lined up for blocks, attended midnight madness promotions and shelled out $210 for a boxed copy of Windows 95 on August 24, 1995 -- 20 years ago today.

    A month ago this year, Microsoft launched its latest Windows release in a far more subdued fashion, making no references to its blow-out Windows 95 launch. On July 29, Microsoft began making Windows 10 available to Windows 7 and 8 users as a free upgrade, no around-the-block lines required.

    Today, the tech world is a different place, and Microsoft, a very different company, compared to 20 years ago.

    That's a great day for 1995, a great day in deed.
