Is there anything more comfy than ancient, deprecated software?

Nope. Obsolete hardware/software/OSes are the best.

Oh that reminds me of a game/simlator I played before that's like a copy of the primitive internet or something. I wish I could remember what it was, it was all like telnetting into o dialing into different servers and they just had peoples day to day shit on them from like the 80s.

dude i play that still. fuck the administration. they ban anyone. but i asked nicely if i could access the source but forbin only hands it out to people who knows, which is understandable.

>>51425308
*who he knows
oops

i use a lot of shit thats so outdated it would never be used by any any respectable company or educational facility

basically because the program from 1994 has several menus, with the exact buttons that do exactly what you installed the program to do, a modern version of the same program has thousands of menus within menus, and even the most core functions of the program are so hidden away you could never use it without a tutorial

its a really shitty trend desu

Why is this shit so comfy? These and weird little programs you download to solve one specific problems are the best.

uplink, as in the hacking game from introversion software in around 2001?

This microsoft aesthetic == best aesthetic

You have no idea how hard i'd use that version of VS if intellisense matched 2015s and had latest compilers ...
>>
>>51424856
No, there isn't. I may have grown up with Windows 3.1 and 98, but I've come to learn that 2000 is objectively best. [spoiler]On the Mac side of things, I also miss OS 9.[/spoiler]

I ran OSX Tiger.

It was fucking amazing to look at on the hardware it ran on.

lel, 640x480 desktop.

All that whitespace.

cluttered. I'd remove alot of the shit in there so I could focus on the code.

I remember Tiger as well. That was OS X's peak in my opinion. Also, we need late 90's Apple back... the iPhone basically ruined them for me.
>>
The Windows Classic theme is one of the finest user interfaces every created. The Windows XP Rainy Day theme was also really comfy.

>late 90's Apple
you mean the Apple that preceded the iPod? the Apple that was definitely going to die?
>>
>>51431023
>the Apple that was definitely going to die?
You're thinking before Jobs came back. I'm talking about that golden period between when he came back and before the iPhone.

From a marketing standpoint. It was in the companies interest to move x86 architecture as the PPC architecture was dying fast. I think Amiga is the only brand left that still runs PPC today. Even consoles moved to x86 arch.
>>
>>51431016

I remember when my school first got those and I thought they were so sexy looking.
>>
>>51431079
I don't blame them for ditching PPC for x86. I just find it sad how their image changed once they got full of themselves with the iPhone. Can't fault them, though... it's the bread and butter of the company, now.

>>51431128
I hate that they ruined the macbook line with planned obsolescence

Also this. Apple's ruined a lot of things in the past few years. I've especially disliked how they sacrifice quality of hardware and software for aesthetics.

There is a balance between looks and performance that they were once capable of. Funny enough, Apple products don't even look that great, anymore.
