    Walk down memory lane - MS Windows Style

    This is actually pretty cool. Dude upgrades from MS-DOS 5.0 through Windows 7 on the same computer using an emulator. I've used each OS he had in the video plus some older DOS versions (I'm <30).

    I watched this a couple days ago - it's funny all the programs that were able to stay on his PC after upgrading so many times

    I think it's amazing that he can play Doom II on Vista, a game operable on MS-DOS, but I can't play the original Diablo on Vista because the color gets so completely jacked up you can't see what you're doing...
