    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

    "...and, can you believe it? Reversi!"

    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...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
