  • A non-original Dell Optiplex GX1, I got it from my grandparents in 2009. It was the first computer I had that I could call my own. It had a 433Mhz Pentium III, 384MB RAM (the ram sticks didn't match 100% though but it worked), some nVidia PCI graphi…

  • I used vista recently for a while on a spare computer I had. Sadly Windows update was stuck in it's infinite loop nonsense. Plus, WSUS Offline got stuck installing one of the prerequisite updates for IE9.
  • The first OS I used was Windows 95.

  • Nice, what is it like using an old laptop like a desktop?

  • I don't consider Chrome to be all that secure in the first place, so I don't know why people continue to use it.
  • Pale Moon because it is a spec-compliant browser that focuses on security and privacy. Also, it's a fork of Firefox and it doesn't use that Australis bullshit.

  • Overpriced, and underpowered and that's if you consider how they released the Apple IIgs in 1986 that was weaker than the macs at the time. Then again, the Apple IIgs was designed with backwards compatibility in mind. At the same time though, the…
  • Apparently somebody managed to install zdoom on this thing, but it doesn't run though. Another person wrote a text document on the desktop asking for help to get stuff on the desktop.
  • I don't know about you guys, but I still can't stand typing on a touchscreen. If I was ever stuck having to use a smartphone, at least give me a full-sized PC keyboard that I can plug into it.
