Running windows I have yet to see a PC run full time
with out crashing. PC's with the latest GUI software
still boot up the same speed as CP/M on a 4mhz z80.
What I wonder does a classic computer with 1.2 uS
core memory that ran for 20+ACs- years and a dumb terminal
provide more useful work than one with 20 us memory
access and a 2 year life span that crashes on a mouse click
at the wrong time?
