For a few billion lines of computer code created by a bunch of pizza-eating nerds, Win95 has attracted an awful lot of publicity.
One of the most interesting pieces was the revelation in the trade and national press that Joan Collins would be arriving, in person, to launch the Microsoft product.
Alas, true to Microsoft form, the reality did not quite match the hype. In fact the launch party was being attended by a rather less interesting Joan Collins lookalike.
At the time The Diary went to press, Microsoft’s “celebrity-packed” invite-only launch party was looking a little fragile.
Aside from the Ms Collins wannabe, the only celeb who had confirmed his attendance was Jonathan Ross.
