Linux "This tree removes ancient-386-CPUs support and thus zaps quite a bit of complexity [...] which complexity has plagued us with extra work whenever we wanted to change SMP primitives, for years. Unfortunately there's a nostalgic cost: your old original 386 DX33 system from early 1991 won't be able to boot modern Linux kernels anymore. Sniff. I'm not sentimental. Good riddance." Almost 21 years of support for a professor. Not bad.

My first was a little Tandy connected to a cassette player. Ah spending 30 minutes waiting for a game to load. Those were the days.

Yah. My 1st was an Atari 800XL with the cassette drive and the Atari Star Raiders cartridge,which still beats the hell out of 95% of today's games.....
