Softdisk for Windows

Softdisk for Windows

Softdisk for Windows was a monthly disk magazine that was put out by Softdisk Publishing from 1994 through 1999, as a spinoff from their earlier DOS-based "Softdisk PC" publication (originally "Big Blue Disk"). [ [ Apple II History Chap 21 ] ] It was launched due to the increasing popularity of the Microsoft Windows operating system in the 1990s, and outlasted the DOS-based diskmagazine by about a year before also ending publication as a result of the Internet taking over from disks as the most common means of obtaining software and computer-related information.
