I actually got a IBM for my first pc. I think it had like a 500mb hard drive or 300mb hard drive. It ran on 3.11. We had two like this one had a bigger hard drive and one a smaller. But our first pc was a IBM that ran on 3.11. They had I think just came out with windows 95 so we got our first home pc in 95 or 96...
When I took them apart last year after years in storage one had a 96mhz cpu in it I think(the ibm with 3.11) and the other with 3.11 too had a intel socket 454 whatever mhz it was I dont remember. It was cool though it was like porcelin and blue.
We then got a 98 in 1999 or 2000 which we kept for 5 years(until last year I built BUILT my first computer)
The old 98 had 350mhz which was okay for then and 96mb ram....It had those errors 98's have.
This program has performed a illegal task and needs to close. Right when you just got to using it. There was no option of "I DONT CARE" just a close button and details button.
Now the computer is stored in a building.
My xp pc is running great with its AMD 3200(pretty nice last year...technology moves so fast) and 512mb ram and 128mb vid card.
What a improvement over the 3.11 pc we had.
But that 3.11 had a game on it! Yes besides a solitair game and paint it had a gold game. When you went to DOS and typed in GOLF you got this descent(then and not bad today but not 3d) gold game. You simply hit the ball around with your guy(who moved with the ball you didnt walk him) until you got it into the hole. One time I even made it hit the flag pole and bounce off it instead of going in the hole.
And the dot matrix printer...
PS I had not trouble hooking even our first pc up after it was hooked up for me once. I was only 6 or 7 years old then. I learned a lot lot once I got to school in 3rd grade and played with the 95. My grandpa got a 98 before we did and I learned a lot more on it. Read the complete idiots guide he bought for 98 and about memorized it. Now I can do just about anything with a computer but program. And I dont want to program I found out. lol
