Today in Computer History

On this day
… in 1995 – Microsoft Corporation released Windows 95 which added major enhancements to the then current version, Windows 3.11. These enhancements included Plug and Play, 32-bit OS, Registry, improved memory, right mouse click and CD player. Windows 95 was the first operating system that did not depend on MS-DOS even though this system was included. This release sold more than 1 million copies within four days. August 24, 1995 was also exactly two years after winning a lawsuit brought by Apple pertaining to some of the enhancements in Windows 95.
