This is one of the few computer related videos REACT has done.

In this video I am made to feel old as hell because I was born in 1995 an one of the teen's said Windows 95 was "Ancient". I wonder what that makes people like my 57 year old father, and 83 year old grand father...

The reaction of these kids to what I would consider the first "modern" version of Windows is interesting. If these kids have been around back then, they'd know that the same basic way of using Windows has persisted since then, and Windows 8 was poorly received because it tried to change that, and people didn't like it.

I did enjoy this video. In a way it's sad that the younger ones won't experience something so revolutionary. Would love to see how they would react to a buggy longhorn build or plain MSDOS

I consider the beginning of "modern" windows to be XP, partially because I used it a lot as a small child (to play computer games, of course). I'm very fond of its startup sound as a result.

There's no mistaking the Windows XP startup sound.
