Crude, But Nice

The first one I ran was a DEC Rainbow. No hard disk, ran from floppies. You only had a few interrupts and they were not shared, and you assigned them manually.

Windows 10 Pro/ Windows 10 Pro Insider

My first computer was a Commodore64. That's what I had when the first modem came out, at a whopping 9.6 Baud. There really was no internet. There were bulletin boards where you could call and write a message and leave it there. That was a lot of fun. I could hook the modem up and dial the number. Then go to the kitchen, make a sandwich and get a drink and make it back before it connected. And we thought we had hit the big time then.

Yeah, I remember the bulletin boards. To this day I sometime refer to a "forum" as a board.

You geeks remember how "fast" it was to download something those days, using a 1200 baud modem (and even 300 baud). For your youngsters out there, 1200 baud modem could give you roughly 4.5 Kbps DL speed...

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1

I tried to do "serious" things on a DEC PDP 11 which is now on a par with the lowest end netbook --- or maybe digital watch.
I think with the age categories it may be better in our touchy feely politically correct society (which is kidding itself) to add a few more higher increment levels.

Is this a sign that HDD prices are about to fall?
I've noticed on Newegg that they've increased the limits on the amount of drives that you can buy. I've seen 3, 5, 10, 20 and 100 drive limits, today. Even the 20 packs are back. If they have so many drives in stock, then why are prices still so high? Price gouging, perhaps? Something...

Chrome OS to launch this fall
More here... Honestly, I think that ChromeOS is more of a threat to Linux than to Microsoft in the netbook market. Although, Windows 7 Starter is horrid, so I can see MS taking a hit as well.
