    Here comes a new Windows operating system from Microsoft Corp. Long delayed, it’s the first in several years, so the company plans an enormous marketing campaign to tout the software as a way to get more out of computers.
     
    But Microsoft’s legion of detractors roll their eyes, calling the new Windows a weak imitator of other operating systems. Meanwhile, technology analysts wonder whether Microsoft’s dominance is nearing an end, since programs coming over the Internet are emerging as a more powerful force in computing than software tied to individual desktops.
     
    Ah, those were the days. Who can forget the release of Windows 95?
     
    That’s right: While the description above applies to the new Windows Vista operating system hitting stores Jan. 30, it also was the landscape 11 1/2 years ago, when Microsoft came out with Windows 95 and ended up cementing its position in the PC industry.
