  • - (Finebros) Okay, so we are not having you react to a video

  • for this episode. - I'm scared.

  • - (Finebros) Instead, you're reacting to this!

  • - Oh my god! You've gotta be kidding me.

  • - It's a Dell. Not the singer, but A Dell.

  • - I see these in old libraries.

  • - Are these the ones that take floppy disks inside of them?

  • - The fact that the monitor is bigger than the actual computer itself,

  • that says a lot.

  • - I have no clue what year this is from,

  • but I feel like this is before I was born.

  • - We had one of these for a really short time,

  • 'cause then we finally upgraded.

  • - Okay, like the first computer ever made?

  • - (Finebros) The first computer ever made would be the size of this room.

  • (laughing) - Okay, okay.

  • For me, though, this is like the first computer ever made.

  • ♪ (punk rock music) ♪

  • - (Finebros) So go ahead and turn on the computer.

  • - Okay, uh, it's been a while.

  • - I'm gonna go with the big button right here.

  • Or not. Again?

  • Oh, I have to hold it down.

  • No! Wait, what the heck?

  • - That's the monitor. Nope.

  • Uh...

  • - That one, I think, right?

  • - (Finebros) That's just the monitor. - Oh shoot.

  • (computer boots up) - (victoriously) Ooh!

  • (laughing) My dad is going to be so proud of me right now.

  • - Right here is the power.

  • (computer boots up) Okay. I know enough.

  • (computer whirs loudly)

  • - The noises are very interesting.

  • I don't think I've ever heard a computer make

  • these sounds before in my life.

  • (computer beeps) - It's a lot louder.

  • A lot more beeps.

  • (computer whirs) - Take your time there.

  • ♪ (humming Jeopardy theme song) ♪

  • - This is taking a while!

  • - You usually boot up, then you go get your snack,

  • and then once your snack is all done,

  • then you come here and it's already done booting up.

  • - Oh, Windows 95.

  • Okay, that's a little bit before my time.

  • - It's prehistoric! (Finebros snickers)

  • It really is. It's an old dinosaur.

  • - Oh! Oh! Okay.

  • - (Finebros) So this operating system, on this computer,

  • in many ways changed the face of desktop computing forever,

  • and that was Windows 95. - Wow.

  • - 95, as in 1995?

  • - (Finebros) Have you ever heard of Windows 95?

  • - I mean, I've never used it, but I've heard of it.

  • - As a joke!

  • (chuckles) Like, I see a lot of things on the Internet that's like,

  • "Ha, ha! Windows 95 sucks."

  • - That was the one that really put them on the map,

  • when it really became a thing to have your own OS.

  • - Those who know technology should know something beyond the current.

  • They need to know part of the past.

  • - (Finebros) So generally speaking, what is different about how

  • this looks compared to the computers today?

  • - (chuckling) The problem is where to start?

  • - (laughing) Everything looks so dull and ancient!

  • - It looks almost exactly the same as the Windows operating systems nowadays,

  • but they're just not as refined.

  • - It seems more rough. The edges are more sharp.

  • It's a little more impersonal.

  • - It's very blank.

  • I feel like there's really nothing going on,

  • just Internet Explorer and Inbox and all this other stuff.

  • Like, the basic stuff.

  • - (Finebros) Okay, so we're gonna walk you through

  • some of Windows 95. - All right.

  • - (Finebros) So look around at the applications.

  • Do you recognize any of them? - The Recycle Bin, (laughing)

  • My Computer, and that's it.

  • - Okay, I know Recycle Bin.

  • I know Internet Explorer.

  • - The dreaded Internet Explorer.

  • (laughs) I can only assume that it's even worse

  • than we think it is right now.

  • - (Finebros) So let's go online through a ten year old browser

  • and open it. - We can get online on this?

  • I'mma double click. (double clicks mouse)

  • - It says, "Internet Explorer cannot open the Internet site."

  • - Oh gosh, I think I already broke it.

  • - Oh, do I have to set up the I-- wait, is this dial-up?

  • - (Finebros) Well, the Internet won't work because

  • there's no Wi-Fi in Windows 95. - WHAT?!

  • Then why is there Internet Explorer?

  • That doesn't make any sense.

  • - How do you get on the Internet if there's no Wi-Fi?

  • - Okay, so how do I get online?

  • - Dial-up, plug that in.

  • - Well, you needed to connect a phone line to your modem

  • to get on the Internet. - I-- wait, what is a modem?

  • - (Finebros) A modem is a device that sends data

  • to or from your computer that gets you online.

  • And back then, modems had to use phone lines to make that possible.

  • - So you would have to use your phone to go on Internet?

  • - Oh, and isn't it that really loud (screeching) thing?

  • - It's scary to think that Wi-Fi is so vital to us now.

  • If you go somewhere and don't have Wi-Fi,

  • like, that's the worst thing that could ever happen to you.

  • - (Finebros) Well, another way to access the Internet

  • was through a service like AOL, which we have.

  • So go ahead and open that up. - I get a free trial.

  • - I see a key, "bless up," and the world,

  • and then an Illuminati symbol.

  • - So step one, it's loading.

  • - This is too long.

  • Now you're going up to get your second snack by this point.

  • - "The first try did not initialize correctly."

  • Are you kidding me?!

  • - Now we're initializing again, and we're back to step one.

  • - God, this is such a pain in the ass.

  • (laughing) I would just give up.

  • - Oh, here we go. Oh, couldn't do it.

  • Couldn't... "initialize my modem."

  • - (Finebros) Another innovation that came with Windows 95

  • was the Start button. - Yeah, that's crazy.

  • You would never think such as simple little thing

  • is still in 2016.

  • - (Finebros) Before Windows 95, many computers had nothing

  • like this to navigate.

  • - So there was just a lot of lost people.

  • - So no one could even use computers?

  • - How would you navigate stuff then?

  • - Didn't they use to have a search button or something like that?

  • Then you'd type in some code?

  • - (Finebros) The way it actually worked was it ran

  • on something called DOS. - DOS?

  • - DOS! Oh, I've heard that!

  • - (Finebros) And DOS was where you had to actually type in

  • computer code, how to run any program,

  • or open any file. - Oh!

  • - That is such a bitch.

  • - Yeah, this is easy, but that seems so cool.

  • - People that-- they had learn computer code

  • before they could get computers.

  • That seems like way too much work though!

  • - If you're on your iPad and you had to type in a little code

  • every time I wanted to switch apps or whatever,

  • I think a lot less people would be interested in owning them.

  • - I can't really imagine having to memorize, like,

  • "Find XYZ File 102!" or something like that.

  • Like, that's just-- I would just not use a computer.

  • - (Finebros) Windows 95 was VERY popular when it first came out.

  • It sold seven million copies in the first five weeks of its release.

  • - Wow!

  • - Really? Seven million?

  • - I'm not surprised.

  • Bill Gates is practically the father of software

  • because he's just created and made so much

  • that expanded on our whole technological universe.

  • - (Finebros) To install Windows 95, it took 13 floppy disks, one by one.

  • - Whoa! That's intense.

  • - Holy shit, that takes time.

  • - I remember what a floppy disk is.

  • That's that square thing, right?

  • - And those would take hours to install.

  • I'm sorry, this is just really blowing my mind.

  • - (Finebros) Is that the way it is to install things now?

  • - No. (chuckles) No, you usually just connect to Wi-Fi,

  • and then, like, downloading.

  • - If I put in a game, to download the game onto my X-box,

  • it takes, like, two hours!

  • I was waiting for my Fallout 4 to download and I'm like,

  • (taps table nervously) "Can I play this?"

  • - Generally, like, if I have to update my computer,

  • do a little refresh thing or get my security,

  • as sad it sounds, if it takes more than five minutes

  • I get pretty frustrated.

  • - (Finebros) So we just passed the 20th anniversary

  • of Windows 95 last year. - Oh, awesome! Happy birthday.

  • - (Finebros) With all the technology that you've grown up with

  • and used today, do you ever think, when you're on a computer,

  • or on your phone, of just how far things have come

  • and what it used to be like? - Of course. Doesn't everybody?

  • Doesn't everybody take a moment and just think,

  • "Damn, this is so easy."

  • - It's just crazy to think my cellphone is more powerful than this.

  • - A lot of older people will watch this video and say,

  • "Oh, look at this!

  • These people who don't know what Windows 95 is,

  • and they're just too into technology nowadays,

  • and they're too spoiled."

  • Well, I'm sorry, okay?

  • It's not my fault I was born after this.

  • You probably had this reaction about older computers

  • when this came out.

  • - (Finebros) So finally, go ahead and shut down the computer.

  • - Wait... there's a right way to do this though.

  • I found it.

  • - Goodbye. Shut down.

  • - Is it gonna do the sounds?

  • "It's now safe to turn off your computer."

  • So I have to physically turn it off?

  • - "It is now safe to turn off your computer."

  • Nope.

  • - (giggling) "It's now safe to turn off--"

  • that actually scares me a little.

  • (pressing button)

  • - Why does it have to tell me it's safe to turn it off?

  • Like it wasn't safe before?

  • Something would happen if I tried to do it without that step?

  • It would blow up?

  • (computer shuts down) (Finebros snickers)

  • - WINNING!

  • - Thanks for watching this episode of Teens React.

  • - Subscribe. It's worth it. I promise.

  • - Hey, thank you guys so much for having me,

  • and now it's safe to turn off this video.
