Remember what the Windows 3.1 desktop used to look
Funny how subtly and insiduoulsy things change, isn't
Made us think: "Let's archive and benchmark
a few screenshots of the desktops of a few people of the day."
Accordingly, we sent out a request lickety-split for desktop
screenshots (with basic instructions on how to go about it, for
those who mightn't know), to about 20 people all over India and
Interesting exercise ~ a few folks of course immediately
sent in the shot, and some never did; one (as you will see below)
followed the instructions incorrectly and sent us only just a
bit over half of his screenshot; several folks seemed to feel
as though their desktops were too private an image to share (!);
two thought theirs too "plain" to pass on (?); and
one thought it all to be "too technical" an endeavour
to attempt (!?).
So, here's a small ~but amply representative~ sampling
of the sort of screens that people today face upon "booting-up"
their computers everyday.
