Though an evil part of me thinks this could easily be, Teens react to FSX!  :lol:  :Nerd:

Geez,

 

These kids are so out of touch with technology. How would they work in today's jobs that use Linux CLI? They look so lost.

Oddly enough, I still have several "antique" computers: a 486i under DOS 3.1, a Pentium II under Win95, and a Pentium II under WinXP. While they aren't used every day, they are absolutely required for me to program older Motorola and Kenwood radios. The programming cables require a DB-15 Com port and the software will not run at all on more modern versions of Windows! :shok:

What is a modem?

 

The worst thing in the world is not having wi-fi.

 

20 years but it could easily be a century!

 

Great entertainment, thanks for posting! :smile: :smile:

Makes me feel old and I am not that old. 80486 is and always will be the best generation of PC's. The Pentium/Windows95 generation was the beginning of the dumbing down of the PC. These kids are evident of that.

I'm a teenager. Got my first computer when I was 11 months old lol. My dad was a tech geek back then who occasionally built his PCs. I still have ALL of the computers I've used since then. One's a Windows 95 with a Pentium (can't remember which one, probably a II) and 512 MB of RAM, which from my understanding was quite a bit back then. After using that for a year, my dad got me a Windows 98 (I remember playing Driver 1 and some rally racing game with a joystick) with one of the higher-end Pentium III's. Unsure about the RAM. After that, I got a Windows 2000 which was REALLY nice. I can play FS2000 on almost max settings at a decent framerate lol. All of them STILL work somehow. And they run smoother than some of my older Windows 7 PCs. Anything older than Windows 95 is really foreign to me.  :blush:

 

My favorite part about these computers was the dial-up noise. So memorable. Oh, any of course I can't forget my favorite keyboard, the IBM Model M. Love the clicky noise.

Don't your friends wonder why it's called 'dialing'?? There's no dial!?!  :lol:

Thanks that made my day. IBM made some great hardware. I worked at IBM in Toronto in the early 1980's and they had those 3270 terminals that were built like tanks, and the keyboards made this nice chunky sound.  :smile:
