    I still have one of these in working order, I rescued it from where I worked when it finally got replaced by something newer. Do you think I could get it to run 10?

    Is that an original Compaq?

    I was on business in Canada, passing through Toronto airport which had a massive escalator, and I dropped the "portable" and it went kdunk, kdunk, kdunk down many many stairs. I chased it in horror - this cost £1000s in early 80s and I was in total shock and horror!

    Got to the bottom, turned it on and it worked fine - just a few scratches on case. Man, they don't build them like that any more :-D.

    No, it's the IBM Portable Personal Computer 5155 model 68. My 'one of these' link was to its Wikipedia article.

    Hahhah WinME.

    Boy was it fast compared to Win98SE and 2000. BUT on all my computers and my friends computers it crashed constantly. Could not get a completely clean install to run stable on any device.

    XP was great until SP3 got released. That update rendered most well performing computers useless.

    Vista was great except that it had HUGE memory leaking issues.

    7 has been the best so far. Very stable and great hardware support.

    Windows 8 was horrible but 8.1 fixed most stuff I did not like.

    Windows 10 is great too...except that it has way too many system over complicating and useless bells and whistles. Worst thing is that most core OS stuff run on top of UWP. I liked the Win32 system much better.

    I carried one of those thru several factories in our corporation to setup and fix problems with early robots. Had a case almost as big for diskettes because it took 3 or 4 just to load programs and than another half a dozen to transfer programing for every machine. Good thing I drove a pickup. Forgot it in the back of pickup one night in Quebec and it got covered in snow, thawed it off and it worked fine. Next one had a HDD and things got much faster.

    Hope we get build 17612 or later on the Skip ring later today. I'm not particularly nostagic for the days when I had to pay a thousand bucks for a 2GB ESDI drive which I thought would last foreever and was messing with Quarterdeck products to get more than 540K of memory. I was more patient back then because I had 2400 baud dial up modems and installed Windows 95 from 21 floppies.
