    Yes. I forgot about that. I actually have fond memories of IBM computers (and OS's) from the 60's. They developed virtualization in the mid 60 with their VM(?) OS. I worked with Data General minicomputer's in college and actually worked for them for a short period in the mid-70's. I like Data General better than DEC because they had 16 bit registers while DEC's were 12 bit which made assumbler programming more challenging. Also I worked with my professor to develop a cross-assembler between the 16 DG machines and the 8 bit 8080 (or maybe it was the 8008). Paper tape punch was 12 bits wide if memory serves

    Hi folks
    there's definitely some serious bloat in newer W10 editions -- could be all sorts of diagnostic stuff being collected for Ms -- W7 and XP simply run rings around it -- My gut feel is that the huge improvement in hardware recently is just masking this stuff -- didn't Ms say "Hardware is cheap -- People are Expensive" so if you get out sloppy coding quickly people hopefully won't notice poor or inefficient coding so long as the machine just works without failing.

    BTW TSO (Mainframe) from IBM/MVS (SP2) running on a laptop under Hercules emulator -- works on Windows / Linux -- you can have your own Water-cooled IBM 3033 Mainframe on a laptop. !!

    We're all Bonkers these days.
