    I still have original W95 CD.

    But no floppy drive to read them !?

    Those DMF floppies weren't very reliable either.

    My earliest computer experience was as a draughtsman....going from a board to a CAD packaged Hewlett Packard ME10....with nobody to ask for advice as it was a completely new concept at the time....self learn was the only way.
    This was in the early nineteen eighties as I recall.

    Yeah, AutoCAD on a 286, punch coordinates in and go get a coffee while it draws the lines.

    Why? That is bewildering to me. If I even found an old win xp or me disk, I would destroy it immediately!!! I have little to no interest in inferior os's. So I am curious what the draw is to keep such disks? Hell, I loved win 7 ult., as it never let me down. But I have zero win 7 software now days, as win ten has well surpassed it. So why would I keep it? Cheers.

    Sentimental reasons and fond memories. XP was the best OS for a decade Until Windows 7 arrived. I like to run them in virtual sometimes.

    I firmly believe nostalgia ain't what it used to be :-).
