Hardware, Embedded Systems Okay, source material is more than 10 years old so this is not exactly news, but I think it's interesting anyway. This BeOS promotional video is a good reminder of how powerful modern hardware truly is, what hardware should be needed for light computer use, and how laughable modern desktop&mobile OSs are as far as performance is concerned. Here are part 1 and part 2 on YouTube.

Oh, that's so true!

I remember playing with vintage Mac SE FDHD back in 2001-2002. Running System 7, it had Excel 2.0 and Word 4.0 for Mac installed and I was shocked to discover old version from 1991 having almost all daily use features of Office XP, the latest version at that time.
