Timeline: operating system progress while GMail was in beta
Why not take a look at Wikipedia's operating systems timeline and see what changes happened in the world of desktop OSes over the same period. It sure seems like plenty has changed since 2004, so I headed over to TimeRime and starting putting things together.
Curious? Have a look the result after the break!
Needless to say, I'm glad I decided against my original idea to look at 20 or 30 popular applications over the same five-year period.
