Almost the same birthday

Today would have been the 10th birthday of Windows 95. Initially codenamed Chicago, it was released on August 24th 1995. Traditionally, the Windows OS and MS-DOS were kept separate, but were combined for the first in Win95. It was superceded by several Windows products and was officially withdrawn on 31st December 2002.

MS reportedly paid the Rolling Stones $12m for the use of their song Start Me Up in the ad campaign. The fact that second verse of Start Me Up begins with 'You make a grown man cry' should have given them some indication of what Win95 would be like !
