You know you love Windows 95, and now it's an app

The server-side change is rolling out to Windows 10 users at present, but the feature does not appear fully functional yet, with no way to view the items you have added to your wish list.

Windows 95 v1.0, as it's known, was created by developer Felix Riesenberg, and is free to download from GitHub.

Running the revolutionary versions of Windows, of course, the tech giant Microsoft's Windows 95 on Linux, Mac, or Windows is as simple as downloading the app here releases and running it on the system that you are now using. The source code and app installers are now available through Github. And for now, the app is just a toy; there's no real reason to run Windows 95 like this, other than the novelty factor of it actually working.

A click on the Start button displays links to tools and default programs that come with the operating system. A full understanding of the computing landscape today can't really be had without running, using, and understanding Windows 95. He admits it only worked well "by accident and was mostly a joke".

Emulators of old hardware are increasingly common online, including Windows 95, and Windows 98 - and these browser emulators should improve in performance as they are compiled to WebAssembly. You can run old games, apps, or load files from disks that you integrate this way. There's no need to boot into another operating system, and no need for virtual machines. I also got it running on a Pixelbook running Chrome OS with Linux app support enabled.

Windows 95, the version that made fans queue up for a boxed copy 20 years ago, was for many people the first desktop OS they used.

There are a few things missing from this software-as-an-app release, including the classic Space Cadet Pinball, but most of the rest is intact. You'll have a hard time finding a lot of 95 software, but this is mainly about the nostalgia.
