Celebrate Windows 95's 20th birthday with a free download of 'Start Me Up'

We've already noted that today is the 20th anniversary of the launch of Windows 95, and Microsoft is celebrating the milestone with a freebie for today only. People can download "Start Me Up" by the Rolling Stones in the Windows Store for free from now until 11:59 p.m. Pacific time today.

"Start Me Up", from the Tattoo You album, was used by Microsoft to be the soundtrack for the official Windows 95 TV commercial on August 24, 1995. The idea was to show how people could quickly access programs and features on the OS with the new Start button and menu. Nearly 20 years later, Microsoft is still offering a version of both in Windows 10.
