Windows 8 to Change Everything 16 Years after Windows 95 Changed the PC

August 24 2011 is not only the 10th anniversary since Windows XP was released to manufacturing but also the day when Windows 95 turns 16.

Six years ahead of the release to manufacturing deadline of Windows XP, Microsoft launched Windows 95, an operating system which it had developed under the codename Chicago.

In addition to the Chicago codename, the Redmond company also referred to Windows 95 as Windows 4.0 internally.

Whoa ... are we collectively ready for another major revolution? I mean, going from 3.x to 95 was a big change. This should be interesting.
