Nostalgia: Windows 98

Last weekend I tried to install Windows 98 on the oldest laptop of mine. It didn’t work, it gave an error, “Insufficient system memory”. Funny, I had 2GB of RAM…

I miss this… Sort of, not really. It’s so much nicer to have it all shut down on its own.

I’ve got a video of it trying, and failing, to boot, however, bad quality, and not all that important.

Anyway… This is what it looks like, finished:
