[GAME] I'm so old

@ladans37 are you sure that was to blame on the OS, or on the hardware you were running the OS on?

In my experience windows XP was plenty fast at the time, as was Windows 7 at its time.

However, if you take an average computer from the windows XP era I’m fairly certain the windows XP experience would be a lot smoother than the windows 7 experience on that same machine.

@rpkamp well, maybe a bit of both. But I do remember that it had a lot of lag and just running slow…so maybe both are to blame.

Off Topic:
Our milk is still delivered daily, although at fairly random times, and since the introduction of social distancing, it’s never come within two metres of the door! lol

I’m so old I remember staying for hours next to the stereo to tape our favorite songs, and cursing the DJ when he talked through the intro or worse in the middle of the song

I’m so old, my first storage device was an old cassette player. My first hard drive was a 5MB HD that was in a compaq luggable along with a 5.25" floppy which cost over $10K in Canada.

That’s nothing. My first computer (in 1965) was a $50,000 minicomputer the size of two cars with 2k memory, 512 blocks of magnetic tape storage, and a 4-inch-wide long-persistence-phosphor display screen. It was called the LINC, for Laboratory Instrument Computer, and was designed at Lincoln Labs and built by Digital Equipment Corp.
