The 32-Bit Difference

Released on December 29th, 1995 for VHS

In all the hype of the release of Windows 95 and its new technlogies that come with it, several terms are thrown around but not really explained much. Two such terms this video explains are 32-bit and multitasking. IBM compatible computers have had 32-bit technology in them since 1986, and Windows for Workgroups 3.11 is perfectly capable of multitasking, so what's the big deal with these two things in Windows 95? Up until recently, most software has been written with compatibility for 16-bit systems in mind. Solid 32-bit support and multitasking has been around for quite some time in OS/2 and Windows NT, but Windows 95 brings them to the masses; now it's time to show you what a difference they make!
