    Cryptonomicon is a horrible book.  The characters are unrealistic and awful.  The ending it is complete garbage.

    Cryptotelecomicon?

  • #103

    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 Smile.

    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'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 Smile. 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.

    Why on earth would you have three different installs of Ubuntu on one machine?

    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 Smile). Shall I be a daredevil and try logging on and using it in this environment? Laughing
