Windows 10 is already underway, but a group of developers decided to create a unique version of the system Microsoft for the Internet. It’s Windows 93, a fun parody of Windows 95 that makes several references to striking elements of the world’s most popular computer operating system, Microsoft. Check out the main features and games of this game.

When opening the Windows 93 page, the application simulates the startup of old Microsoft systems. Initially, data about the user’s “hardware” are displayed, and, soon after, the famous Windows loading screen appears. Finally, on the desktop, a login sound is emitted and the user has access to a system desktop to use the fun and colorful “Win 93” applications.
In general, the system usage is very similar to that of Microsoft, being possible to open a fully functional program with two clicks, maximize the window, minimize, and, of course, close. In addition, you can use the taskbar to switch between applications and also the classic Start menu.
Despite its name, this application simulates Microsoft’s System Command Prompt. To get started, the user can type “Help” followed by entering to have access to all available commands.
This is the Windows 93 browser. Its home page is the DuckDuckGo search engine, which works similarly to Google, but with the promise of not tracking user data from searches.
Despite having an address bar, the browser is not able to access other sites like TechTudo.com on its own. For this, it is necessary to search for the site before in the search engine and click on the result.
There are even some folders with links to websites created with puns and funny jokes. However, they are all in English and the user must have knowledge of the language to understand them.
As the name suggests, it is a version of Windows Explorer, a program used to search and manage files. Unfortunately, the program is not useful and its joke is due to the reference to the character Dora Aventureira (The Explorer, in English).
This is not a useful program for those who access Win 93, but just a joke that promises to give the system a psychedelic tone. People with epilepsy should not use this option. According to the app’s description, it is capable of “opening the gates of hell”, when it comes to design.

Glitch Grrrlz, Clavardage, Blox, Zkype, Matrix, Pukedata, Manifesto, Framapad, Acid Box 93, Game of Life: These last ones are applications without any functionality, but that refer to some old or famous software, besides games. It’s worth playing with them all if you have time.
