Cryptonomicon is a horrible book. The characters are unrealistic and awful. The ending it is complete garbage.
The characters are pretty much historical. Haven't found many significant deviations yet in the main characters. Turing is dead on.
Running Windows 95 on a 2 GHz processor? That would not exactly be authentic.
Use VMware's VM and you can limit the cpu usage to make it a little more authentic
I don't consider emulation authentic. But that's just me .
I can fake sincerity like nobody else!
Yeah, I see where you are coming from, but after using a Win95 pc I much prefer a VM :P
I'd prefer a Win95 machine.
I have two win95 tablets :D
I's been ages since I had a proper" Win95 machine. I do have one machine that multi boots, including Windows 95, though I rarely use it. I also have another machine where I don't multi-boot technically, but I use it to run win 3.1 a lot, as you see in the beginning if this thread . It "multi-boots" to Windows 98, 3.1, 3.0, 2.03, and 1.01. I put multi-boot in quotes because they all run under the same version of MS-DOS.
lol it is multi booting just like when I had three differant ubuntu versions on one pc :P
On one machine, I have 8 versions of Windows! 98SE, 95, 3.2, 3.11, 3.0, 2.1, 2.03, and 1.01.
Why on earth would you have three different installs of Ubuntu on one machine?
Proably for the same reason I have 8 versions of Windows on one machine .
Some are too old to update :P
actually I only have one OS right now and it is Slacko Puppy
the hdd crashed...
Can't try SE right now. I tried the original Windows 98 with IE4, it got about halfway before it froze, and I was unable to take a screenshot .
I finally got a chance to try it in Windows 98 SE, and it seems to load correctly in it (at least in Firefox ). Shall I be a daredevil and try logging on and using it in this environment?
Bravo to Mozilla for attempting to provide functional browser as that is the trickiest thing!
