What Instagram Would Look Like On Windows 95
By Dorothy Tan, 02 Aug 2016
Those of you with the experience of using a computer in the 1990s would probably have memories of clicking away on Windows 95.
With mobile devices and touchscreen being ubiquitous these days, the idea of sitting in front of a large desktop with a mouse in your hand may make you feel nostalgic for a simpler time.
Based in Moscow, Russia, animator Misha Petrick has blended the past with the present by imagining how Instagram would look like if used on Windows 95.
She has created a series of GIFs that shows the distinctive aesthetics of this old Microsoft operating system as applied to the familiar functions of the popular image-sharing app.
For instance, you would likely be notified of new likes and followers by a pop-up window, which you can dismiss by clicking on the “OK” button with a white arrow cursor.
View the rest of the GIFs below—do you think you would still use Instagram if it runs on Windows 95?
