Nostalgia returns to Microsoft and if a few weeks ago we saw how they bet on an old man known as Clippy for some wallpapers, now they are stepping back from the past to bring new wallpapers to life. screen with which to customize Microsoft Teams.
Microsoft has released four new backgrounds for Microsoft Teams to make video calls look different. A nod to the most veteran users whose protagonist is Clippy, the solitaire game, the “emblematic pre” or the legendary Paint.
A journey through time
Microsoft yesterday released four new funds to apply to Microsoft teams joining the #Throwback Thursday or #tbt movement, a time they spend reflecting “on the old images, the funny GIFs, and the nostalgic moments that have defined us in the past. over the years “
The first of them has Clippy as the protagonist. The legendary Office virtual assistant, Cortana’s grandfather, Siri and company brought back to life with this wallpaper. A Clippy who as they say was a real virtual assistant a little ahead of his time.
But he is not the only one. There are three more and now it’s the turn of Solitaire, a game that recently celebrated its anniversary and now comes in the form of a wallpaper as Nostalgia Solitaire. Solitaire is the popular game that came with Windows 3.0 in 1990 and although it was not the first version of the operating system to include a graphical interface, it introduced many new features and made Solitaire one of the most played video games of all time.
Another of the backgrounds features Paint, another legendary tool. Paint was one of the default apps when Windows 1.0 was released in 1985, becoming one of the first graphics editing apps, and recently arrived as a standalone app.
Finally, we must talk about the meadow (Landscape), which is the most seen photo in history. A Charles O’Rear photo of a green meadow in the California wine country that served as the default wallpaper for the Windows XP operating system and was what millions of people saw every time their PC was on. An image that now comes with tweaks and graphics improvements but still looks great as ever.
From Microsoft, they hope those funds served as a time machine to travel down memory lane. Some funds are ready to be downloaded from this link.
