    I think if the software comes on anything other than floppy disks it probably wouldn't run anyhow with 640KB of RAM

    I wrote a 'benchmark' in my VERY early day of programming once
    in QBasic, It was bassicly a for loop. It ran almost twice as fast in
    DOS then in Windows98.

    I tried to do that on my 486 laptop and almost made the HD fubar.

    Right now I just run Linux off of a floppy, but you can't save changes and I don't have gcc for it.

    I think DOS reflects true power, Only seeying that command line
    strikes fear into most men!
