Microsoft's Internet

Cannot Read from Drive A:

The internet on a disc; still holds up better than Windows 8. My favorite line is ‘Take the Internet with you, wherever you go – fit it in your pocket!’. We’re lucky enough to be able to do that today, but have thankfully dispensed with the 3.5 floppy.

There’s Money in that Hot Dog Stand

Came across this abhorration of a UI from my new favorite site, Coding Horrors. Where to start with this one? How many elements are obsolete by now? The 386 chip icon is pretty flash, as is the SCSI port cable. What was cardfile, a contacts application? I’m too young to remember Microsoft Bob, but if he’s anything like his cousin the paperclip – I’m glad he never entered into my consciousness. Funny that no applications had custom icons, what a train wreck.
