    I used Windows 3.0 at school back in the day, at the time it seemed so powerful but then Windows 3.1 came out. Then 3.11 for workgroups – wow windows with networking capabilities!! lol

    Apple's lawsuit was totally ridiculous….graphical user interface was the next logical step in software evolution and no one can claim ownership of that idea

    Was that a solid state hard disk?

    Back then PCs were only for professionals and businesses, that's why this is all business talk, no enthusiast/consumer stuff like you see today with LinusTechTips, Bitwit, etc. A 486DX-33 PC in 1990 would have run you like $8000, which is $15,000 adjusted for inflation, just absolutely bananas. Normal people couldn't afford them until the mid-90s, and by the late 90s everyone had one.

    They need a new operating system for their hairstyles and clothing.

    My first Windows was Windows 3.1, but I never really used Windows 100%, still went back to DOS, until Windows 95 arrived. My journey to the dark side was completed at that time.

    Xerox filed a lawsuit against Apple claiming Apple had infringed copyrights Xerox held on its GUI's. Xerox had invited the Macintosh design team to view their GUI computers at the PARC research lab; these visits had been very influential on the development of the Macintosh GUI. Xerox's lawsuit appeared to be a defensive move to ensure that if Apple v. Microsoft established that "look and feel" was copyrightable, then Xerox would be the primary beneficiary, rather than Apple. The Xerox case was dismissed, for a variety of legal reasons

    Ivan Sutherland developed Sketchpad in 1963, widely held as the first graphical computer-aided design program. It used a light pen to create and manipulate objects in engineering drawings in realtime with coordinated graphics. In the late 1960s, researchers at the Stanford Research Institute, led by Douglas Engelbart, developed the On-Line System (NLS), which used text-based hyperlinks manipulated with a then new device: the mouse. (A 1968 demonstration of NLS became known as "The Mother of All Demos.") In the 1970s, Engelbart's ideas were further refined and extended to graphics by researchers at Xerox PARC and specifically Alan Kay, who went beyond text-based hyperlinks and used a GUI as the main interface for the Smalltalk programming language, which ran on the Xerox Alto computer, released in 1973. Most modern general-purpose GUIs are derived from this system.

    As someone who lived and grew up in the 90s, it's amazing that many tech videos of the time are done by much "older people", about 40 and above, probably 50s and above.  Probably because wealthy people 40 and older were the only ones who could afford these things back then, most of this stuff were luxury items and not readily available to common folks.   How many everyday people really used this tech in 1990?   Today everyone uses technology, and today tech videos are usually done by kids or really young adults in the 14-25 age range.  When kids or young adults today do a tech video, no one is overly uptight or professorial about their presentation, it's sometimes too casual and chill with more a "hey bro, check out what this phone or laptop can do!".

    12:57 I stay with DOS. I think 640K of RAM is too much and costly. Nobody need such amount of RAM.

    the concerns of apple against windows "they copied moving icons! they copied moving windows!" are as retarded as if when printing press or typewriters came out one guy sued another "he typed an A on his paper!! just like my machine!!!"I saw once on tv a guy furious with a co-host telling them "YOU STOLE WHAT I WROTE!!"-what?-YOU COPIED WHAT I WROTE ON YOUR INTERNET PAGE! I DEMAND YOU TAKE IT OUT, YOU ARE INFRINGING MY COPYRIGHT, I'M THE AUTHOR OF THAT TEXT!the other guy was like "huh? that's how facebook works!! I liked what you commented and I shared it!!! that's normal!!" the angry guy kept repeating "YOU DON'T HAVE THE RIGHT TO COPY WHAT I WROTE, I'M THE AUTHOR!!".well… this video reminded me of this when they talk about one company suing the other for having the same stuff like menus, icons and so on. and I'm afraid judges, lawyers and all that kind of "clueless bad guys in suits" are like that guy from the tv show.

    Then in 95 it became its own operating system.. I miss DOS.

    Notice the lack of the word "folder" "Directory" is used instead as that is what they are. Not folders, just because a visual representation is of a file, doesn't make it a folder.

    6 fonts for 400$ what a steal!
