I found this one in Windows 95 beta "Chicago" build 73G, it's pretty neat.

Here's a dump of one of my wallpaper folders. This is only 146MB out of ~20GB though.. lol. A lot of them in my other folders are unsorted, so it would take far to much time to go through thousands of them. If I run across them one day, I'll post more here. Some of them might be duplicates of ones posted here already, and within my album there may be dupes.. didn't look. I know there are a few that look like dupes but are different resolutions. Hopefully there is something you guys like in there.. :cool:

Yeah they have a very..... un-corporate aesthetic. I suppose GW2K was maybe like that early on.

I have two of their System CDs from 1994 and 1995 486 machines. These were on them. There are some funky videos, sound and MIDIs too, along with drivers and software.

those funky videos are probably the microsoft-produced mmpack stuff
Voodoo2s aren't 100mhz stock
Geforce256 isn't released as a beta on New Years '99 under the Quadro brand
386DX vs SX isn't about a missing FPU
DOS gaming isn't a bilinear 320x200 16:10
DOS PCs aren't better than the Macintosh
Old PCs aren't 'aesthetic'

I don't even know why Gateway had such a huge cow fetish back in the day.

Gateway's from Iowa, the farm state, so you can't really blame 'em.
