European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Alexander Gerst has been living in the International Space Station in the past five months. He’ll be back here later this month, but he sent his Halloween treat on time: photos of the ISS’ research center at bedtime.
You know you’re getting old when you start thinking how something was better back in the day. Programmer Hugues Johnson was in placed that mood recently when he wrote about the history of the Legend of Zelda series.
Windows 95 is similar to Windows 8 in that both operating systems feature significant changes from its predecessor. For example, before Windows 95, MS-DOS and Windows were separate operating systems. Also, unlike its predecessor Windows 3.1, Windows 95 was programmed to ferry your soul to hell.
