Microsoft Home

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


This was a line of personal hardware and software programs for Windows, first released in mid-1993. The line had a wide variety of titles, ranging from gaming (Microsoft Entertainment/Arcade Packs), to reference titles (Encarta). Microsoft Home was slowly phased out by 1998, right as the internet was growing in accessibility.
