Hey all, now my builds are mostly in a state I’d call “finished” I thought I’d share some pics/specs 😀
The earliest computer I used was a Win95 AT model - one at home and they had them at school - don’t remember anything else about them. When I really got into building/messing around with them they had just about changed over to ATX so had a few PII and PIII machines mainly out of used parts. The P4 era was when I lost interest for a while so thats the period I’ve focused on trying to recreate some of the machines I’d used back in the day. Taken some license with the dates in some cases but generally they are designed to be “period correct” for the year.
OS wise they are all running 98SE with 98lite/95 Explorer. For the pre-‘98 systems I’ve gone further with replacing cosmetic elements with the ‘95 versions to get a really close “replica” 95 - no idea why, just experimentation and nostalgia 😂
Any thoughts and stuff welcome, just wanted to post some pics now they’re all “done”!
