Operating Sadomachochistic News?
It's the same instinct that makes people enjoy watching YouTube videos of skateboarders crashing spectacularly.
And if this or the other video, was about backwards-compatibility for windows: for some programs, that is non-existent. I have software that was released for XP, that only works with XP.
But hey, that software is now owned by Apple, and now sudddently the old versions don't work on later versions of windows.. Sounds like microsoft tactics we have seen before.
First I LOLed, then I felt ashamed.
He started this video mentioning that IE 1 was released for Win95, Win 3.1, and NT on the same date. This is not correct; IE 1 was Win95-only, and subsequently IE 1.5 was released for Win 3.1 and NT. IE 1, without support for tables, was always essentially useless.
Another interesting experiment would have been to validate that HTML/JS/CSS written for each version continues to work in subsequent versions.
What I thought was missing is that he should have bookmarked something in each version and tracked how far the upgrade cycle kept his bookmarks. Windows has been fairly consistent with the Favourites folder ever since IE4.
