Are you kidding me? I played Oregon Trail in 3rd grade when it first came out!
@Empshok, *you died from dissin terry*
That game was the shjt though, I remember my mom taking me to work with her playing it on her computer
@Empshok, same dude. The memories
@Empshok, I remember playing text games on a Commodore 64 & when I got older playing some on my friends apple computer, but I don’t remember the games
@CKMe, I'm "it is now safe to turn off your computer" old and you just made me feel young.
@MMSieBreeze, just a basic prompt over teal.
@MMSieBreeze, like DOS older... :(
@MMSieBreeze, don't use the ancient spells on me, I was there when they were invented
I can feel this picture
@Sterling M Archer, I want to feel the top left picture
Oh yeah, back that dumptruck up!
Loading dock #6
@Sterling M Archer, But does this picture feel you?
@Sterling M Archer, my heart rate rose seeing this. NOSTALGIA....
Oh way older than that...
@ThePandaPool , I remember running DOS to start up windows.
Do not cite the deep magic to me witch, I was there when it was written
Windows 98 bìtch.
First one I remember is windows 97
Oh come on majority of us here probably did some MS DOS as kids
Who’s not older than Windows XP? That was like 15 years ago...
I used to enjoy changing the start up sounds to long rambling Monty python quotes just to annoy my coworkers
Nothing like getting home from school in 89’, firing Up the Amiga 500 n playing Shadow of the Beast.
@boardinsocal, I can taste the hot pocket and Surge soda while thinking about this.
My first computer, if you can call it that, was a Sinclair ZX81.
The people's computer...slow & low.
Did it write to audio cassette?
It held down a cool 1K RAM & 8K ROM.
I had a C64, but my cousin had this...or it was another model by Timex, but it was the same device. Relatively smaller than the bulkhead keyboard of Commodore.
@Che D Lay sir, I went from here to C16, C64, C128 then Amiga. 500k of raw power.
@stercus stercus, Amigas are centurions as far as utility & versatility. I have an old friend & former professor of mine who has defined most of his career with primarily using Amiga's. He can hold his own work (35+ yrs) up to just about any other image manipulation tech save for the game engine imagery & cgi software (Maya, etc.) considered standard today.
Did 500k (RAM I presume) travel a bit differently on an Amiga system?
More clearly, how did it perform so well ahead of the software dev firms which eventually caught & passed these systems?
I hope that doesn't ask the question of performance over results too vaguely?
@Che D Lay sir, I’m not smart enough to answer that. I played games and stupidly never went into the technical side.
@stercus stercus, it's all good. I ain't a Rhodes Scholar either. I just don't engage folks on an Amiga topic...ever. But hell, that makes you a bit more affluent in the pc realm than most game grinders who've never seen a floppy but see it as a save button on a desktop.
I just enjoy that someone would bring up a Zx81.
XP came out in 2002 its not that old
Like put in the 5.5 inch floppy and turn on the Macintosh with a green screen and no operating system boot strait to Oregon Trail old. Btw im only 39
20+? Yeah a lot of people are.
Windows XP came out in 2001. You don't have to be that old to remember it.
Fùck. My feelings.
Much much older.
You ever use Windows 3.1?
I recently bought an XP computer and a bunch of older disc-based games I used to play as a kid, so far I can’t get any of them to run. I wonder if anyone might have any suggestions? My next idea was to try to get a DOS machine going on virtualbox
Reminds me of the home computer I had growing up that I infected with much virus thanks to a substantial amount of limewire porn
Cough... ummm I remember windows from the 90s... this itself looks too modern to compare to the sheer contrast of the og windows symbols
I feel attacked
I'm 5 inch floppy old.
I remember when my elementary school got their first computers for students to use. They were all Unix and had one application we could use which was a math thing
I'm, you had to wait for the PC to tell you it is ok turn it off old. Actually, I am DOS Old but I can barley remember how to open a drive A;/?
i can hear this picture
I'm 22 and grew up on a windows xp laptop my father gave me. Even this is making me feel a little old
