Already "old school" brought.
Ready to get a powerful shot of nostalgia? In this collection, we have collected classic utilities, without which it was impossible to imagine any computer 15-20 years ago. If you used a computer in those days, then definitely remember the programs listed with genuine warmth.
The legendary player that was installed on almost every computer. We loved Winamp for different things. Someone just for very fast work and ease of use, someone for unusual "skins", and the most experienced ones for an abundance of useful plugins. But in any case, love was sincere.
Want to get more nostalgic? Listen to the same llama bleating track that was standard on Winamp.
File Manager Total Commander is one of the best utilities for organizing files. Total Commander replaced Explorer, allowing users to move, copy, and delete files much faster. Moreover, the utility replaced many other programs, including the FTP client and archiver.
The Donkey is still alive today, but in the 90s it was completely different. Simple, understandable and most importantly the only way for most to access the Internet. The first steps in a vast global network for a huge number of people around the world were carried out precisely through Internet Explorer.
The first super-popular messenger that everyone liked about its speed, accessibility and “soul”. According to the latest indicator, not one of the modern instant messengers stands next to ICQ. If only because in ICQ there was that very “oh-oh” sound.
By the way, try to remember your account from ICQ. If it works out, then you will find an avalanche of nostalgia.
Nero Burning ROM
Nero Burning ROM is the simplest and therefore common utility for burning discs, which used to be in the required set of programs for each computer. Also, many loved Nero Burning ROM for its beautiful interface and logo with a twinkle.
3D Pinball Space Cadet
When the Internet suddenly turned off on the computer in the 90s (or it wasn’t at all), the user immediately started it. The truly legendary 3D Pinball Space Cadet. And all the worries instantly faded into the background – the gameplay captivated with a head.
By the way, you can play 3D Pinball Space Cadet on Windows 10. You can download the game from this link.
Microsoft Office with Scrap
Microsoft Office is a document editor that for quite some time included Skrepysh. This animated clip helped users recognize the functions of the “office”, advised when needed and when not needed, and sometimes it was simply frankly annoying. But despite all the minuses, when Skrepysh was removed from Microsoft Office, the office suite seemed to be taken away.
In the dashing 90s and early 00s, movies, music and games had to be found not on the Internet, but on the local network. Utilities like StrongDC ++ or FlylinkDC allowed you to go directly to other users' computers and rummage there in order to find interesting things. It was dangerous (viruses were hiding behind popular films and music albums), but it was terribly interesting.
