|Took home an old computer to see how Win95 does nowadays.|
At 256mb of RAM the resource meter has difficulty getting below 90%. Used the built in IE3 that was bundled with it on broadband. Fast install, fast boot, fast internet and solid.
When you have a lot of RAM (Win95 was typically installed 16mb in the old days for average off the shelf sales) every old system seems capable of being a handy back-up for getting on the net to get files should your current system have problems.
Frankly, I'm astounded at the ease of setup compared to today. So my question is: Does anyone else have a system with Win 9x on it for a backup system? It's too boring for any regular use because you are pretty much relegated to the Lynx Browser and the other texty internet tools nowadays with it.
BTW. I like my Win 3.11 system far more - it is more fun to tweak. Win95 is dull for the guy who likes to tinker. Too easy I guess.
