1985: A go-go year for geekdom

Our fourth annual compilation of the current year's most notable technology-related 25th anniversaries includes Microsoft's release of Windows 1.0, registration of the first dot-com domain names, the founding of AOL, the publication of Richard Stallman's GNU Manifesto, and the first fatal attack by the Unabomber.
