I grew up on an Acer with a 75 MHz Pentium processor and Windows 95/98SE. It originally came with this Acer UI running ontop of Windows 95, it was... weird but kinda interesting, useful if the computer had been a tablet, maybe. It put things in categorical areas with GIGANTIC buttons. But then we upgraded to 98 SE when it came out.
BSODs were a regular part of computer use back then. Amazing how things have changed.

Sony had a similar thing back in the Windows 95 days...they called it "VAIO."
You had this goofy little screen that had big, huge icons to click on, meant to be used by people who were befuddled by digital watches.
Reminds me of Metro...
