Today I stumbled across a site that prompted me to think “Oh, I remember that …” over and over again.

Guidebook is a self proclaimed “museum of user interfaces”, from Xerox Park to GEOS, from Microsoft OS/2 to Windows XP and much more besides. I spent a happy hour or so browsing around and remembering the times I used many of these interfaces.

If you’ve been around the computer world for more than the last five years, you’ll probably remember many of these as well.

Updated 20 February 2017: Fixed the link to the new home of Guidebook.
