When Windows 95 launched on Thursday August 25th 1995 (the clue's in the name), Mortal Kombat was the surprise box office hit, TLC was top of the charts, and Microsoft was pushing its new operating system with a $250 million publicity campaign. Start buttons everywhere, buying the rights to The Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up" and a cyber sitcom starring Jennifer Anniston and Matthew Perry.Yes, a cyber sitcom.
