Isn’t it pretty much spot on though, bringing (desktop computing) to the masses?

Mac and amiga used locked down hardware and the ps/2 IBM platform meant that we had cheap clone hardware that quickly would develop. Several OSes tried and failed to keep up with desktop requirements, windows came through (gaming, media publishing, music creation etc).

And while innovation is great, working and good enough is just that, what the masses need. While windows isn’t the best, it was almost always good enough (compared to, doesn't run, needs to compile etc) and thats what counts in the long run.

This may change to runs in chrome eventually, but 93-2010 was pretty much runs on windows.
