Default Re: O/T computer help desk thread

I became hardcore on the Amiga 500`s and first went online with a 300 baud modem. I think people forget how far it has come in a very short time.

It wasn`t that long ago that we waited 5 minutes just to see if the machine successfully booted up. Had a full muti tasking SVGA graphical windows and mouse based OS with full stereo and 4096 colors that only took up 3 floppies.

I`ve used lots of OS`s and like most all of them. Anyone remember installing Win95 from floppies...that sucked huge although a tech could make a good living in those days.
