Tell your colleague that if he installs KernelEx he can install Firefox 3.6 on Windows 98.

I think it's rad using an old machine to develop for the web; I always preach that with only notepad you could take on the biggest companies and beat them. The web is beautifully open like that.

Maybe with syntax highlighting added, but notepad alone... That would be really hard to use on large codebases, I think.

I guess one would have bigger problems than just syntax highlighting: things like money, time and coffee supplies. Still, it's entirely possible and some people proved that even with little resources (call it a "notepad") one can achieve a lot.

Thanks, I'll check it out. Oh, did I mention that his installation is 7.5 years old?
