People discovered how to make metal tools instead of stone tools.

They never went back.

 

Let it go.

Windows 95 is gone. Etc.

Its a feeling of nostalgia and that feeling of I wonder, you cant force people to just forget everything just because its old and obsolete.

Well if you are making a retro machine that is not connected to the internet 98 is not a bad option considering that 95 had several issues and ME is total garbage.

I really like projects like LGR's woodgrain 

A really cool retro build

Retro builds are really cool as those making them sure wont connect it to the internet so they will be okay to use for the most part.

 

But since you used the same title twice here is frozen "let it go" but this time in multi languages!

 

Dont make me get the klingon version!

I have a vintage W98 machine, and use it for older DOS games that will not run on modern versions of Windows. There is DOS box and others, but sometimes they just won't work or won't work correctly.

But technology is different. Newer doesn't always = better. There are many cases where MS DOS, Windows NT 3 - 4, Windows 9x, Windows 2000, Windows XP or Windows Vista are being used in today's world. Older programs/equipment that are critical for a companies operation, may only work on a certain version of Windows/DOS and in some cases, to a certain patch level. 

 

But for some, the older version of Windows can bring nostalgia to them. Being someone who was born in the early 2000's I have a nostalgic place for Windows XP and Windows Vista. But for the people who are older then me, they'll have a nostalgic place for Windows 9x, MS-DOS or the earlier PCs.
