I may be dating myself, but anyone else care to open up to their past "like/love" of the computer erra to date?
What do I mean? I mean, what thing or things did you find most appealing in computers over the years? Was it the creation of Linux or windows, or the mouse with 3 buttons?
Myself, I have a few things that I miss, and things that I am still glad to have.
I miss. at times, the days of online chat rooms. You had to dial in. Yes, with a huge speed demon of a 1200 Baud Modem. Made the 300's cry. This was the time before the internet was even a big deal. Is it now?
I miss 3dFX. A kick butt video card maker. From not that long ago. This linux box I am running on actually has a Voodoo 3 card in it. Wow. I still think Glide based games were far superior in look, over D3D or OpenGL, in the same era!
I am still glad to have DOS in windows. Still can do things that windows won't let me. And I am glad to have USB. What a god send for devices today.
That is my rant. Thanks for reading...
