Linux Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols at Computer World asks himself when he first started using Linux after attending the Linux Foundation Summit where several others were asked the same question. The Linux Foundation has posted a video of some of the answers; boy, do I feel young.

The funny thing is that with Linux, the stuff you learned in the 90's is still relevant today... Contrast that with pretty much anything you learned about MS-DOS, OS/2, windows...


Talking about MS-DOS, in the early nineties my wife was a secretary using WP 5.1 on DOS as her word processor. Since she moved on she has remained stuck in that period. She does not like any GUI based word processor like Abiword or Openoffice Writer. So for the past few years I have set up WP51 in Dosemu on Linux for her. Originally I had to use DRDOS 7 for it to work but now it works fine in FreeDOS.

Try running WP 5.1 for DOS using XP or Vista, I not sure it can be done.
