I was just wondering if any mylotter had an e-material with details on the evolution of operating systems. Was given as an assignment, got some online but wouldn't mind getting something extra, even a link wouldn't be bad. Anyone tried out ps2 emulators yet? Do those things work for real? A friend told me it worked for a friend of his whose system had about 1gb of RAM. Welcome vista, hope u're more than the hype.

theres always a way around things like that by changing a few settings usually because you have a lot of ram its too much for the emulator to handle so you need to change some settings to reduce the amount of ram they will use. remember consoles are not as fast as a pc nor are all the older computers i mentioned above this is why you have to change settings to slow the program down in order for it to work properly.

in other words, the emulators don't require as much RAM as is required for the normal running of the pc? That's good to note.

emulators do work i have either used or owned emulatorts for the following computers or games consoles: atari 65xe, commodore vic20, commodore 64, commodore amiga 500/500+/600/1200 spectrum zx81, spectrum 128k, sega master system, sega megadrive, sega saturn, playstation 1 and 2, nintendo 64, gameboy (all except the ds), nintendo game cube and xbox. theres always people making them for other consoles and always will be, the way i see it is i keep gaming to the pc and if by chance a certain game isnt available on the pc i can always use a console emulator and get hold of the specific game on the pc, not that ido it often as im not a big gamer but a pc will always be better than a game console, pc's you can upgrade and rebuild game consoles are a range which dosent last more than a few years usually before a newer one is released.

I can let you have a copy of DOS 3.2 if you like, circa 1986. Or maybe Windows V1.0 of about the same era. That was the time before hard drives when the program like a word processor or a spreadsheet fitted on a 360kb floppy and your data as well! Windows has been bloatware since Windows 3.1

U've been in the pc system for a very long time. What's the meaning of "bloatware"? Still need materials on evolution of operating systems. Thanks.
