digital hoarding old OS
Posted by: Fritz
Date: August 25, 2023 07:07AM
doG nose why, but I have been holding onto MacOS since X debuted.
I have only my MP3,1 that could even run any of these and it's on HS.
The mini is on Monty and unlikely to step back.

Is there any reason I should continue hoarding ~20G for the Albertian Order of Leibowitz after the great Apocalypse?

And why is "debuted" pronounced day-byood instead of correcting the spelling?
I mean, what did the French ever do for the English language?
Besides Binoche, Cotillard, Deneuve, Hardy, Bardot, Green, and Hupert.



!#$@@$#!

What if the hokey pokey really is what it’s all about?

Webster tried to correct it to "deboo," but it didn't take.

...He also tried "tung" for "tongue" and "wimmin" for "women."

The only reason we aren't spelling "built" as "bilt" is that people refused to buy his books until he set things back to the familiar spellings.

I have a 4TB drive with about 7 partitions, all bootable, for my old MacBook. Mac OS's 10.7 thru 10.14.

Why? I dunno.

High Sierra is not that old. Other than doing online financial transactions, I would still use it.

Old is System 7, which a small number of users still use http://system7today.com

The Atari 2600 doesn’t have an OS, yet Atari seems to think they can sell the 2600+ for $129.99 https://atari.com/products/atari-2600-plus
