The History of User Interfaces

Is it just me, or does the UI of Windows 3.0 (1990, the first OS I’ve ever used) look much cleaner and fresher than any subsequent version of Windows? 🧐

Windows 3.0 is the third major release of Microsoft Windows, launched in 1990. It features a new graphical user interface (GUI) where applications are represented as clickable icons, as opposed to the list of file names seen in its predecessors. Windows 3.0 sold 10 million copies before it was succeeded by Windows 3.1 in 1992.
