    Win 98 was not so great.

    98SE still rocks on. :)

    Microsoft's browser development is going to be based on Chromium. I think eventually, their OS will be *NIX. It will save them fortune on development costs.

    No. The turbo button was on the AT Clone.

    4.77 Meg was normal and 10 mHz was turbo.

    I do have one, But memory is 512 Kb so it is really only good for DOS. It has a 5.25 inch floppy and 40 meg HD.

    In the day it was the hottest thing going for about $2000 USD

    I wouldn't be willing to wager on that one. I know this will come as a complete shock for those who know me as A number one Microsoft Windows hater, but the Windows kernel is pretty impressive.

    The rest of Windows is a horror show. Unfortunately, Gnome and the freedesktop.org people are rapidly closing that gap.

    One question I have is, How long will Win 10 work without being connected to the internet ?

    Has anyone used it completely disconnected from the internet so it don't update or phone home ?

    Well, I have turned off most of the phoning home, and it just plain can't do any updating... It wants to cram 2G through our DSL connection... Just ain't gonna happen at our download speed.
