This is a curiosity of mine- is it still worth owning a PC that runs Windows 95/DOS? Are modern OSes like XP and 7, coupled with DOSbox and source ports of old games enough to totally render an older OS like 95 or 98 obsolete?
I tooled with the idea- I dont' have room for another PC, I already have 2 of them, one with 7 and one with XP, but a laptop with 95 loaded on it... but beyond just whether or not it's even worth it, there's also the issue of hardware. Neat as it'd be to install on a modern SATA drive, I'd bet finding 95 drivers
for newer hardware would be next to impossible. Running on SATA especially? Would an older IDE computer be needed for that? I know 95 isn't going to detect full capacity on even an 80 GB HDD, which is the lowest you can even buy now. I dread to think how it'd play with modern DVD drives or newer processors especially. Buying older hardware from the 90s is probably a sea of issues- finding working hard drives, making sure those old components aren't going bad, etc.
Neat as it'd be to have an old OS like that on hand, I have my doubts that it'd be functional for software or viable for hardware to own such a PC.
