From a standpoint of normal navigation, NT4 has a very similar look and feel to Windows 95. At least that is true once a user is logged in. The login process is a users first clue they arent in Win 9x anymore. Assuming that Win 9x is on a network, a user logging into Win 9x is presented with a name and password prompt. Hitting the ESC key at that point says, go on and boot without loading the network components. In NT/W2K, there is no such option. No correct name and password = no access, even to local resources (files, printers, etc.).
To log into NT the user must press CTRL-ALT-DEL at the same time, which brings up the WINLOGON applet. The user MUST present a valid name and password that has not expired to successfully get into the computer. After any applications found in the start up menu are loaded, NT 4 (and Windows 2000) looks almost exactly like Win 9x.
