win95 is total love-nostalgia for me because i remember when i was a little kid with my pentium in the ending of the nineties. that was my first PC and i totally love it messing arround with DOS games and CD/diskettes media with lots of programs.
check it out, this kid had a pentium

Don't want to sound like a normie but xp was nice, alongside snow loepard. Didn't have much time with the snow leopard tho, it was nice when i used it and it makes me remember the early 2010s, lates 2000s. XP is something else tho, it was everywhere. Honorable mention: windows 2k, made almost usable with kernelex and many more patches by the community.

I preferred 2000 to XP in the very early 2000s before software started to require XP features specifically. I just liked the more muted interface.

Yea i get it thats why i have a win2k vm on my computer just to have some nostalgia, i used to have a toshiba laptop with a 1 ghz celeron from 98 or 99 with win2k, xp and q4os in it. had some pcmcia usb cards and an old usb wifi adapter to go along with it. the keyboard on it didn't work and i couldnt find a replacement so i had no access to bios and for some reason it didn't let me install from windows, so when i tried to upgrade it to pentium it got bricked and i dissassembled it and use its lcd as a screen for a raspberry pi, maybe i'll turn it into a secondar screen to play retro pc games, dunno. Sorry for the rant, just the memories of working on an old piece of tech.

i never really had computers or cell phones growing up until i was too old for it to make a meaningful impression. i do remember however being in middle school and this girl on the bus would sit with me and let me play games on her ipod, i miss that early apple aesthetic. this was between 2009-2011

I grew up on whatever version of MacOS was running on the old iMac in my basement (the only computer in the house I was allowed to use at the time) which gave me a lifelong resentment of Apple since all the interesting stuff I wanted to do with it game-wise was locked to Windows. The OS that makes me feel nostalgic is Windows 7, since my grandfather had it on his laptop right up until the laptop died and whenever I went out to my grandparents' house I was always trying to get on it so I could try some of the stuff I had wanted to do at home.

Vista is underrated from a design perspective imo. A lot of the "aero" design of 7 people remember fondly was actually tested in Vista. Vista failed because they split requirements (you could have "basic" support that couldn't handle aero even though aero would be enabled) which made people think it just ran like ass. I want to say NVIDIA (may have been AMD though) had a major driver bug that would trigger BSODs, which was blamed on vista.

I have been reliving my childhood using Windows XP on a VM as that is what I grew up on. What OS did you guys grow up on?
Windows 98 and Windows XP! I remember the first game I ever played on our Windows 98 was My Little Pony *nostalgic*. This was the beginning of my pc gaming era lol
