Re: Allure of retro computing

Often times it was much more of a challenge to get things working back in the day. (And to this day as well, even with great resources such as this site.) So to me, a lot of it is being successful in this regard, and learning along the way.

Re: Why DOS died...

This thread is a bit confusing.... Why DOS died? Is this asking for peoples opinions or is it a historical question?
