Why has Mac and Windows became a jungle of an operating system?

Think of how simple Windows 95 was or the first mac computer.

Everything was right in your face. There were not categories and categories of folders and files and subfolders where your work was dispersed in and it easily got lost.

The settings weren't lost somewhere on the computer, they were right in your face.

Your programs weren't lost somewhere on your computer but were right in your face.

    Windows 95 wasn't simple, and definitely not as brain-dead easy to use as Windows 10 is.

    Very simple. Except when you wanted to get drivers for a printer or some other peripheral.

    Sound cards that didn't work right, Video cards that were glitchy.

    in windows a hundred different interfaces for a hundred different programs.  

    Mac at least had a more or less common interface on all the programs that would run.

    Remember learning DOS commands?

    I think modern OS of any verity are much better and easier to use than in the dark ages. Of DOS Win3.5 Win 95/95 or any mac OS before OS 7.
