And we simply have to admit in this millennium that these are now slow machines. Even after the Microsoft tax, current hardware is simply faster and more capable. I like retro computing as much as anyone (have pdp-1 <not merely pdp-11> logic modules around) but when it comes to getting paying business done it's probably just better to use more recent hardware. If you like the software offerings with NS/OS, then white hardware with or without VM.
Quote from: "gtnicol"I personally think the most useful boxes are the Turbo Mono machines. With a good HDD and full of memory, they're really very usable.
