I’ve been watching most of the The History of Microsoft episodes. It’s very interesting to watch, but the series is now come to an end. The year is 1999.
1999 was the year Internet Explorer 5.0 got released. It’s amazing that it took a whole 10 year to get to version 8 of IE. We got Office 2000, which I still use and it works perfect for my needs. We also got Windows 98 Second Edition, I still have an old computer running on it. ’99 was also the year of The Matrix, one of the best movies ever made. It was also the first movie I bought on DVD.
If you haven’t watch all the episodes of The History of Microsoft, go to channel9.msdn.com and download them, it’s well worth a look.
