Would be interesting to know which OS'es where actual that time. DOS 1.0/3.0 or even before???.
The first system i used was win 95, then win3.11 ( better), then dos6.22 ( ten ways better than w9k) and then ME ( Mist( Garbage/Trash) ) Edition) . After that failures i switched to linux and now i do use win7 ( tested w2k/xp a bit too) and linux.
Did Pcs with GEM GUI have fans ( im just curious)??
