Friends don’t let Friends use Windows 95

Remember Windows 95? Actually, some of you here are probably too young to. Blimey, that’s depressing…

Stay on target, Rob. Anyway, “revolution” that it was (it was mostly 32-bit and everything. Ooh), it was still a bit tricky to use.

Fortunately, that nice Matthew Perry and Jennifer Aniston made a lovely little training video, some time between seasons one and two of Friends, to help everyone adjust. Part one’s below; their credibility is somewhere else, probably trapped under Ricky Gervais’s.

    I’m Rob Buckley, a journalist who writes for UK media magazines that most people have never heard of although you might have heard me on the podcast Lockdown Land or Radio 5 Live’s Saturday Edition or Afternoon Edition. I’ve edited Dreamwatch, Sprocket and Cambridge Film Festival Daily; been technical editor for TV producers magazine Televisual; reviewed films for the short-lived newspaper Cambridge Insider; written features for the even shorter-lived newspaper Soho Independent; and was regularly sarcastic about television on the blink-and-you-missed-it “web site for urban hedonists” The Tribe. Since going freelance, I've contributed to the likes of Broadcast, Total Content + Media, Action TV, Off The Telly, Action Network, TV Scoop and The Custard TV.
