Windows 7: Amazing Backwards Compatibility - Fujitsu FDX310

Amazing Backwards Compatibility - Fujitsu FDX310

I upgraded straight from XP to Win7 and unbelievably my Fujitsu FDX310 ADSL USB Modem still works totally fine, no driver problems or anything. I swear, it looks like it was designed for Windows 95 or something (it wasn't even supposed to run in XP) and when I upgraded I had a mental list of stuff I thought would go wrong and my s***ty modem was right at the top. But no, amazingly it still works.

Just thought I'd share that in case anyone else is running ancient hardware and is worried about compatibility.
