The Lospec Palette List is a database of palettes for pixel art. We include both palettes that originate from old hardware that could only display a few colors, as well as palettes created by pixel artists specifically for making art. All palettes can be downloaded and imported into your pixelling software of choice (learn how). You can also try a our palette of the day or a random palette.

Windows 95 - 256 colours 

Submitted by Chris Moes

This palette was originally created by Mathew Eis and posted to his site. It's a reconstruction of windows 95's 8-bit 256 color palette.

Had trouble getting it working so uploading it here to convert, as well as share with other people looking for it (took me a bit of searching to find)
