2GB of disk space? I would have killed for that as a kid.
Oh, also: Norton Commander 5.51, the last release that ever came out for DOS (1998).
@fribbledom Norton Commander was da bomb. I use Midnight Commander and (mobile) Total Commander now and then still. MC is kinda a must for Linux commandline. :P
@fribbledom I remember early in my career when IBM was announcing discs going into the gigabyte range.
And 16Mb of RAM in our IBM 6150 came in the form of two full-length ISA cards, FULL of chips. Must have been the BASI days. (Bugger All Scale Integration).
I started with 5¼ floppy disks, 140 KB, and a punch to make a hole on the side of the case to use both faces of the disk (and reach the astounding storage of 280 KB).
My first PC had 80gb 3.5' HDD. Recently I bought 256gb microSD card for my Switch. Feels weird :)
@fribbledom We still use Norton Commander at work for old machines running with MS-DOS. They were really surprised when I said I use mc at home which is nearly identical.
@fribbledom I started out with a 286 PC with 1MB RAM and a 42 MB HDD. I still remember barely being able to install anything to HDD because it was always full. Those were fun times.
