Blasts from the past

Head on over to the Download Squad for an interesting look back at Windows 1.0. Not exactly a game, I know, but Windows has had a tremendous effect on the path that gaming history has taken.

(via The PC Doctor)

And for some gaming goodness that will take you back, travel in time to The Most Officialest SkiFree Home Page! Skifree was part of the original Microsoft Entertainment Pack, and was one of the first Windows games I remember playing (aside from Solitaire and Minesweeper, of course). Written by the original programmer, the site gives a brief history of the game's development and marketing, and has a link to the original SkiFree 1.0. Even cooler, there's a Win32 .exe file available for download, so you can get your skiing on in Windows XP now, too.

And yes, I still hate that stupid abominable snowman.
