A nostalgic look at 1991 computers
« on: August 03, 2017, 03:58:34 PM »
1991's PC technology was unbelievable

I find this an interesting and nostalgically sad look because 1990 is when I got into computing.
I got my first "real" computer circa that time frame. Well, I had an 8088 in late 80s' but that doesn't count.

*sigh* How I wish I could have my misspent youth back.

1991 was the first year I started using a NeXT. It was pretty similar to what I have now in OSX since it is actually the same OS...

16MHz but it wasn't any slower than a 3.5GHz quad core now.

NeXT was way ahead at that time. I had one at ma bell.
