Microsoft's website has been online for 20 years now, and the company is celebrating by recreating its original look and feel. It's a throwback to the days of dial-up modems when you'd access the internet through a series of terribly high-pitched buzzing sounds using a Windows 3.11 machine and AOL. Thankfully we've moved on from those terrible times, but it's still nice to look back at the days when Internet Explorer didn't exist, some browsers didn't used to support images, or you'd have to wait five seconds for images to load. If you're looking for even more nostalgia, there's always the untouched Space Jam website to browse through too.
