If Instagram Was Available on Windows 95

How great it was back then with no touch screens or smart phones.

Do you remember Windows 95?

For anyone who remembers what Microsoft’s flagship operating system was like back in the 90’s, this post will make you feel a little bit nostalgic.

How great it was back then with no touch screens or smart phones. We had dial-up internet in those days and Windows 95 felt like a revelation with its new grey blocky taskbar and start menu. The display would be in 256 colors, or if you were lucky in a Hi Color (16 bit) color pallete. It felt like the future!

Russian, animator Misha Petrick has created these great animated GIFs re-imaginging what our favourite photo sharing app would have looked like 20 years ago if it was running on Windows 95.
