32K???? We would have killed for 32K! The IBM PC in 1982 only had 16K.
Released: September 1981
Price: US $1,565 ~ $3,000
CPU: Intel 8088, 4.77MHz
Don't let that 4.77 Mhz fool you. It took 4 clock cycles to execute a No Op.
I give Microsoft all the credit for making software bloated as it is today.
I give credit where credit is due.
I also give Microsoft credit for lowering the bar on quality.
Microsoft has done very well. making it socially acceptable to ship stuff that does not work well.
And there are some that think Microsoft has not contributed to the current state of the art. AT&T jumped on that ship crap bandwagon all too quick. There was a time when I respected AT&T. That was a long time ago. Before 32K of RAM for sure.
And now!! Those litigious Cupertino f--ks. To hell in a hand basket. Oh my, Oh my.
