    I web surf on a TRS-80 Color Computer with SIXTY-FOUR KILOBYTES of RAM... Just saying...

    On a non-lie basis: I really do still have (3) of those. And a Commodore 64. And I'm pretty sure a few others.

    I also have a plan, for the next time I turn in a computer at work, to install something ridiculous like MS-DOS. When they turn it on to check it out they'll be greeted with C:\>

    I would be totally impressed if you literally installed DOS 3.1 on a modern computer, as opposed to just launching the CMD prompt automatically when Windows boots. I wonder how feasible that is. Step 1... find a DOS disk. Step 2... find a 5.25" floppy drive... Step 3... figure out how to connect that ribbon cable thingy to a modern computer. Step 4... give up?

    You GenX'ers kill me.

    You do know you can put DOS on a thumb drive? And you can download the disk images from the net...

    Oh? Next thing you'll tell me is that they make a 5.25" floppy disk drive that connects with a USB cable.

    Anyway, I'm not sure about this 6.22 release. It's just a little too new and untested for me. 3.1 was the last release that I frequently used, so I prefer to stick with that. They might have added a new command or something since then, and I don't like change.
