16 bit goes back to the IBM AT days.

I got curious and Googled "zork on windows 7 64 bit" and found that there is a site that is dedicated to this specific topic. You will need a shareware named "DOSBox".

Ah! the good old days. I remember having to code by candlelight, sneakernet, and having to re-wind the DVD's. Big Grin

I have used DOSbox to program older Kenwood GMRS radios. This is a case where an old '386 computer running Win 95 did a much better job.

How did you rewind DVDs? I know, a DVD rewinder.
I'm guessing you mean rewind VHS tapes.

Ever rewind paper punch tape?

1. A bad attempt at humor.

2. Yep!

3, Remember loading programs from a cassette . . . circa TRS-80?

I had an IMSAI 8080. I also had an Alto from Xerox PARC.

RE: Stopping Win 10
On another note, A couple of interesting news items:

Dell's newer laptops no longer have DVD drives.

Intel's Skylake and Braswell chipsets no longer support USB 2.0. Only 3.0 which usually won't be a problem since 3.0 is backwards compatible. However, installing Windows from USB is not possible.

10TB drives are hitting the retail market. estimated street price is about $720 US Smile

My newest computer has no DVD drive, and only has USB 3, SD, HDMI and of course fast wi-fi and (surprisingly) wired ethernet. Alan, the huge drives are okay, but the cool trend is solid-state up to 1-GB.

Respectfully, do you mean up to 1 TB? I have a W7 machine I put together with two 1 TB Samsung SSDs. And it boots so fast the Windows flag doesn't get a chance to form.

RE: Stopping Win 10
Prices are still too high on SSDs. Read an article that Seagate has a 10TB SSD hitting retail but if you read into it, it mentions RPM speed so that would make it a hybrid.
