I think Ronnie B said it best, MS is marketing IE to the exact people who would never go back to that shit browser under any circumstances. Bunch of out of touch pinheads.

I like the ad because it runs in real time and features Private Pyle.

Yoyos, fanny packs, Gigapets, pump up Nikes with LEDs, bowl cuts, wallet chains, and pogs. Thanks for reminding me how queer my generation was. Fuck you internet explorer.


Oregon Trail was sweet tho.

Oregon Trail was only fun to shoot at animals and see if you can give your teachers dysentery.

How is the yo-yo a 90's thing anyway? Haven't those things been around since ancient times? And I don't remember any of my classmates bragging about their rad new Duncan.

Meh, and that version Oregon Trail is from the mid-eighties and came on giant stoopid floopy discs. By the early nineties we had VGA goodies like Quest for Glory 3 and Ultima 7 that came on 3.5s.
