Although Windows 3.1 already had a user interface, Windows 95 was the first major OS that was actually easy to use for consumers. It was one of the main reasons why many of Microsoft’s competitors went out of business (they simply had no easy-to-use-GUI).

Windows 95 was codenamed “Panther”. The actual planned release date for Windows 95 was June 1993, but as the name suggest it was released two years later. Support for Windows 95 stopped in 2001.
