If you have not disabled this feature yet, when you start Windows 95 you should get a tip of the day screen which let's you become familiar with Windows 95 and its features. If you are like 90% of Windows Users, you have already disabled this feature. Quote for the Day can replace this somewhat boring feature by giving you a comedic quote every time you start the program. It takes almost no time to run, so you can place it in your startup folder in Program Manager or the Start Menu. Windows 3.1 users can also use this program, because this piece of freeware comes with the 16 and 32 bit versions.

The program runs very well, and is very user friendly. All you have to do is unzip the files to install the program, and the tech support is pretty good, but you may have a hard time e-mailing the author outside of Australia, where he lives.

The only real problem is that in 32 bit mode, the setup feature does not work, and you will have to terminate the program if you click on setup. Other than that, Quote for the Day is a funny, fast, and small program that should be a welcome replacement to the tip of the day in windows.
