'Windows 93' is like your childhood computer on acid

Flat design. Pfffft. You know what’s really cool? ASCII renditions of Star Wars: A New Hope in what appears to be its entirety. This bonafide internet gem (and who even knows how many others) are hidden in Windows 93, a web app spotted by The Verge that mimics a bygone time of cathode-ray tube monitors and dial-up internet connections. The Redmond-inspired desktop has all manner of callbacks in addition to that ultra-low-fi version of Episode IV. Easter eggs include a game of solitaire with a twist, a pop-up “virus” and too many other goodies that we don’t want to spoil. What were you able to find, dear readers? Let us know in the comments.
