Awesome!  I recognize the DOS Shell interface, since I have it installed on my MS-DOS VM.  It looks so slick and retro on a monochrome screen.

That is some retro awesomy goodness.

I remember having a early Pentium 1 machine for windows 3.1 that had 256MB of RAM installed. It was a loaded machine for its time, every option, this computer had it.

DOS 4!?? I heard it was so buggy it could make a computer broken.

Or was it just 4.00?

I wished that I had that thing.

For me, the oldest computer that's still around is the GRiD 2270.

It has a 25 MHz 486SL processor, a 1.35 GB hard drive (formerly 130 MB) and 4 MB of memory (upgradable to 12 MB). Currently, the laptop is not working right now as I'm still waiting to get the battery pack fixed. The computer will not operate without it.

I just thought it would be a courteous thing to do, with the translation! They are good for a laugh! I think I'll stop commenting with those translators.

Oh well, at least it was funny.

That laptop that you're using is quite old! Did you know that I recently got a convertible tablet PC that I got from eBay for Christmas?

I'll reveal the specs of the tablet PC in my next screenshot! Unfortunately, the screenshot will be in black and white and have its display inverted! Oh boy, a inverted screenshot is gonna be awfully scary!

i know, i know X3

but who? WHO of the "Main Street"(what nearly everyone here is) knows the difference beteen freeware and free software. and acutally for these people it doesn't make that any difference, cuz they sure won't edit such a programm, becuause they don't know how to do

sAlxe Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2009
It's not just about editing :P It's the rights you have over that program.
And, as you say, if they can't difference it, fine, but you'd forget about people that say what I did. :)
What harm can cause writing free software or FOSS, instead of freeware?

the preocessor is pretty ok, but the ram xD omg thats not enoguh, if you want i tell you how do you can upgrade your ram, if you don`t know how to do that ^^

a graphics card you must have, without you cant see anything on your screen xD, but i think you mean that your graphics card is build in in your motherboard ^^
