Since 1973 computer I/O [Holorith cards, Basic, Fortran, CPM, DOS, DR Dos, Windows – Honeywell Series 60 (Level 66) Systems, XT's, AT's etc.] has become a component of my environment. Over these the years, we've had a 286, 386, 486DX and several Pentiums. In the same period of time we have a shelf full of extinct "stand alone" operating systems, e.g., Dos 3, 5, 6.1, Windows, Windows 3.11, Windows 95, 98, ME.

Maybe moving their corporate flag pole one-hundred miles to the north would stop the insanity.
However, I do not appreciate the pace and the associated cost of constantly upgrading hardware and software.
"They" (the computer industry in general) certainly know how to entice the spoiled child in me....
