Didn't Windows 95 ship with IE3 or something equally ancient? I remember installing Windows 95 on some really old hardware many, many years ago and the default IE home page (msn.com?) didn't render at all, not even the text. I had to dig up one of those CDs that came bagged with a computer magazine to get IE5 on the machine. I used to have a copy of Microsoft Plus! that had IE1 but I think tossed it during a move.

Yeah, RTM had no browser, you had to get IE 1.0 from the Plus! Pack.

Well they did state that the internet was of little interest to the general public right before the release of Win95
