Windows 98 = Flashback

I‘ve been sticking to Windows 7 for more than 4 years now, and it’s a really good operating system compared to other prior versions of Windows. The First OS that I’ve used was Windows 98 (as far I can recall or maybe Win95 :s) when I was in 3rd grade. My dad was abroad when I was little so I got a early computer and even a  even a Ymail account for e-mailing with my dad when I was 7!! I still remember that the Internet Charges were higher than our Monthly Power charges! So usage was pretty limited..

So I started tweaking my Machine for killing time, i.e Windows! I had very high-end games like Mario, RoadRash, Tomb Raider, etc 😛 and I had all my neighbors and friends at my home all the time playing those games. I learned all the basics and even tricks from that computer. That was the time when I was falling in love with Computers.. 😉 I’ve used Windows 98 till my first computer got destroyed! I don’t remember what happened but it was history when I reached like 7th grade.

Then I didn’t had a PC for like a year or something, and my second computer came up with Windows XP pre-installed.

 

Windows XP was actually my Childhood! I do almost everything I used to do when I had WinXP. I used WinXP on my main computer till 2010. And continued using on different computers (dads laptop, schools, cafes etc) for another two-three years, maybe.. I almost forgot how Win98 was like.. And suddenly yesterday I just randomly went to the Windows 7 settings and selected “Windows Classic” theme.. bhooyaa! My Life just went back to the 2000’s! Which really gave me the inspiration to write this blog 😉

I just don’t know how to put them into words, but I just feel happy. 😉

 P.S: RIP #WinXP 😦 https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/enterprise/end-of-support.aspx

I have to say the WinClassic theme not only gave me memories to me, it also gave some memory to the CPU! ie. Windows is “kinda” running smoother now!

 

You can also try out the Windows Classic theme on your Windows 7

In Control Panel → Appearance and Personalization → Personalization → Basic Themes → Windows Classic.

 

I’m pretty sure it’ll take you back to your 2000’s! 🙂
