Happy 30th Birthday, Intel 80486!

This is the 33MHz CPU I've used for my first own PC build, and at some point in the near future I'd love to try and rebuild that machine from spare parts.

Can't wait to see you boot up just once more, my old friend!


I grew up with a Philips 8bit homecomputer, and thus skipped the whole range of actual x86 machines till my brother got a . Also only briefly used Windows 3.11, before switching to W95.
