Lot of people have a Windows 98 in their grandpa's houses
For years Youtubers and content creators have been gifted with technology to run their social media careers, but what about those stuck in 1998? What it would be like to run an internet career using Windows 98. Let the creativity fly!
SO TAKE ME BACK IN TIIIIIIIME
TO ANOTHER WOOOOORLD WHERE YOU CAN B-
Windows 98... I grew up here. I'm not that old,
I just happened to live in a family who used Windows 98 for a really long time.
I never used it for YouTube, but that's what we're gonna be doing today. We're gonna go back in time...
*To AnOtHeR wOrLd*
...and figure out what it would have been like to try to run a YouTube channel or content-
create content in general....
Using this wonderful workstation.
We're gonna post some stuff on Twitter, through Windows 98,
we're going to maybe make a video through windows 98. Maybe we'll do some art in windows 98.
You can do art, right?
Yeah, no it's fine. I just I just I'm trying to go to look it up, okay?
Today, I tend to think that I'm a pretty patient person. I think growing up with Windows 98 is what made me that way.
I can't even drag it. All right, y-you take your time with that okay? I'm gonna be... can you shrink?
Can you shrink? Die please thank you. Programs! there it is.
Im- *Gasp* Paint! We're here!
then, th-the most logical step to take when trying to make content with '98 is just to draw something.
I'm sure it can handle that, and I'm sure it would make for a great Twitter post.
Needless to say, a wonderful picture of my boi Son- *nope* Tails.
I sssuck at freehand with a mouse.
There we go. that could be a lot worse. I-I'm okay with that.
There it is, nice.
Alright, add his-his Cheek Floofs™(?)
That's what I call them. He's giving a big thumbs up.
Go-good job, Tails! and of course
And of course, we have to sign it because I'm kind offFFFF scared people will plagiarize my artwork. Pete Kineet! alright.
Uhh, ssssave as... what kind of images did we have back then? what in the world are these ".dib files?"
"T alisman" alright cool, our first piece of content for the day. Now we just got to figure out how to upload it.
Uhh, let's see if Explorer is gonna work now.
H E L L O ?
Oh my gosh, end it!
That's... is that a browser?
Yeah, uhh... I don't know what any of this, is but go for it. AOL, classic...
AT&T WorldNet Service... Is this a browser?
Look at these people! Oh, dude, I can save this pic. I can set it as wallpaper. Oh, that's dope!
Well you didn't... oh there they are!
This is fine, these are the people of AT&T.net
Hey! Internet Explorer is working at least! uh, how do I...
Twitter? oh wait, I forgot I gotta do the, uh...
Don't do this to me. Don't- Stop doing this. stop doing it! my goodness. Game?
Windows? What are these? Are they birds on a wire?
You gotta find my modem? I don't have a modem.
Okay, whoa, what is this? Whoa? This is high-tech, Look at these high-tech people! They're so high-tec-no, stop. Okay.
There's... Here's what I'm gonna do then. I'm gonna go into the real world...
There we've crossed over, and I'm just gonna screenshot it. Now, this is maybe cheating a little bit...
I don't think 98 is gonna work with Twitter. Made this an MS paint today.
Going out skateboarding with the boys. and there it is. our first piece of content from windows 98 is complete. What does this do? cool?
I should've used that.
That's horrifying. while we're waiting for a wonder- a response from our 98 content on Twitter, Let's, uh...
Calculate. If we're using windows 98 and it took us...
, years to upload it, we should get 98 thousand likes. I didn't need a calculator for that.
Minesweeper! Life is complete. I actually know how to play this game. a lot of people think it's completely random, turns out it's not.
Alright, so you got a . That means that there is one mine touching this. It's either gonna be here, here...
I don't think it can be here. It's gonna be one of these two.
i guessed right!
okay, this is...
*Peter did a thing*
Let's do some solitaire. What in the world are these cards- wait, can you make custom cards?
No, they're just awful pictures from MS Paint. Already a great start.
WOW, this is the best game I've ever had.

It's kind of flattering so I think we should try
posting a selfie what type of image is this so it is a
PNG and in order to open it it has to be flippin. I don't know
Dib kind of file is this
Bitmap image, okay, we have to make a bitmap image of whatever we want to put here
First things first I take a selfie with Ray razor
razor hey, buddy hey
Hey, buddy. I got my selfie. All right. This is the new Microsoft Paint and it's
not nearly as good, but we're gonna have to save as
Other formats, okay, what do we got?
All they thought of Windows paint yes, okay, cool to dip Impe quality might be reduced hi
Darn tootin it will okay cool there. It is boys. Let's try it. Well. You know

All right, I can send the link to people
Which is cool? All right? Uh besides that what else can we do while we're waiting. There's a phone dialer does this actually work
uhh Does it work
phone dialer was unable to find telephone device or modem OK
Well probably cause it's 8 *INHALEEE*
My gosh, I forgot about old screensavers
OH I actually used to do this where I would make a
That's why I didn't want to do that, but yeah, I would make a screen saver
And then I would actually sit here and wait for it to play because I was so
entertained by that
I'm stretching and it feels good. Now. This is just gonna be me waiting for a minute
We're we're just waiting now

Set as wallpaper, that's amazing. I have come so far today. This is my crowning accomplishment. Do you know how?
How difficult it is to?
Get an image to work alright guys. Well. I probably killed my twitter, but hey. We made some pretty good content
It just goes to show if YouTube were to have been around in 998
I still would have been able to do it even though I didn't upload anything to YouTube I
uploaded things to my twitter which is
Not the same at all
but hey in the end I mean to be fair this entire video was in mostly in windows 98 so I
Content for my youtube channel using windows 98
Take it or leave it. I don't care either way
I'm proud of myself that being said windows 98 is not my favorite windows although I grew up with it
