What is difference between Software (we have to install ) and portable software (just click to run). 1. Is there any performance difference? 2. Is portable software are have lots of bug? 3. Its not good for big software? 4. Is there any update issue? 5. Or any other problem?

I was in the audience during the Windows 95 plug and play bsod. The audience took it with a laugh and I leaned over to our department head and said, "It's been fun, but I think there's a job opening at Microsoft."

having to use a soldering iron after the 8088 and 8086 is extremely rare and unusual, one could call it punishment. generally you had pins already installed for jumpers. by the time the 286 came around if by freak chance you ended up in a state of needing soldier you would just install a pin connector, then never need to soldier it again. by the time 386 came around if you needed a soldiering iron on your day to day test bench you were a freak of nature. that doesn't mean that you shouldn't have had a soldiering iron, obviously component level repairs would be a thing even to this day, but by the time 386 was a thing most issues didn't require component level repairs. it is kinda funny because we are kinda back where we were before the 386 right now where most failures are hardware, but after the 286 until pretty recently (about 11 or so years, maybe a couple more) most failures were software. right now software is pretty rock solid regardless of where you are coming from, so if something is acting stupid it is probably the hardware that is the issue, but for a decade to a decade and a half if your computer was acting stupid odds were it was software, and during that time there was pocket where completely reloading your computer was just the go-to solution, because you knew it would work.

The absolute worst, which still happened in Windows Vista and maybe in Windows 7 was the network driver issue. The onboard network card had to have its drivers installed before you could access the internet and automatically install anything else. The one driver to rule them all.

Far out! That takes me back to setting FSB and multiplier dip-switches on some mainboards. Oh and resolving IRQ conflicts in the BIOS so Windows could handle that 10mbit BNC network card. =-D

That Facebook money was too good to stick to your guns about them requiring an account to use the Quest 2, huh? Don't get me wrong, it is an excellent device, but the company behind it is the absolute worst, and you hopped right over the line you yourselves drew in the sand by advertising it.

Funnily enough, now my biggest problem with connecting peripherals is when the person has something such as an old network adapter, which requires a very specific driver, which should be in the disc that came with the adapter, but the disc and the box are gone, the company went bankrupt, and no one has the goddamn driver because no one has this fucking adapter.

Anyone here remember or had SCSI on their systems in Windows 95 or Windows 98 era? I used to have 2 drives, cd burner, a scanner all SCSI. To get that to behave in bios, dos, windows and not crash something was a challenge! IRQ's, some devices sharing the same one making things 'fun' to not make the OS crash if you looked at it wrong.

Damn kids today have NO IDEA how annoying it was trying to troubleshoot an IRQ conflict between a graphics card and a sound card! Booting into Safe Mode was a regular occurrence, and often was the ONLY way you could boot after installing new hardware, because you had to install it in the PC before installing the drivers and it would inevitably fuck up the IRQs when Windows tried giving it one automatically, and you’d have to manually figure out which device needed to have priority over another and depending on the way that device was designed, that sometimes meant that there were some devices that were too needy and sensitive to which IRQ they had assigned, and you’d have to buy a new (possibly inferior) component if you couldn’t get a PCI sound card to work with your PCI graphics card, and if you didn’t have an AGP slot on your board (because those weren’t a thing yet), then you might’ve had to downgrade your Sound Blaster to an older ISA card, or if you had a modem, you might’ve had to swap your internal ISA or PCI modem for an external serial modem, because those different busses all had different expectations with what their IRQs would need to be and how fast they needed to transfer data to and from the chipset or CPU.

I actually don't know if it is coincidence or some part of the algorithm shoving me this same W95 presentation clip throughout the week, but as off three days ago I wasn't aware of this incident and now I think I've seen at least 8 different videos talking about several different things and they all reffer to that presentation incident. It's a bit like when I learn a new word, suddenly it appears to be everywhere and I've never noticed it before... It's so weird...

So this basically ended up being a video about the Quest 2 and how anyone over 35 is old because they remember Windows 95, which btw didn't support USB until Win95b was released.

As a mac user in the 90's, I remember telling my PC using friends about the joys of plug and play. Their eyes would glaze over... until Windows got some of those features but only worked some of the time. They were so excited but had no clue why I looked at it as old news. Times have certainly changed.

I'm pretty old ... once upon a time .... THERE WAS NO USB !!!! I can tell because I punched cards.... later came monitors, replacing printers as UI, years later I used Pc with Dos 3.0, Windows 1.0 (no multitasking - no network) ..... Nobody know Burroughs nowadays ... few still living used a Honeywell mainframe system. Now they force you to use a post-stamp screen (with android) instead of a more confortable 65" PC monitor (App dont ran on PC - Authenticators neither)
