I was using the old 5" floppies on my old 286 so I go a little further back to the day's of wolfenstein, I also remember the older 5.25 and 8 inch
but my joy back when was more was my old commodore.
I have to say you are wrong, windows 10 is simply awful, I never hated Microsoft but am beginning to now because of this.
I never liked Gate's though, of course I used DOS a lot but remember he actually only refined it, he bought it off a computer programmer whom had
created it in his garage by the name of Tim Paterson.
Gates was never the genius that he is made out to be, he was a consumate salesman though and a more than fair programmer in his own right but it was
his skill in gaining a contract to supply MS dos, his refined version of Paterson's work to IBM that made Microsoft a brand name.
Now while you can argue that Paterson copied or rather emulated many elements from CPM and dos itself was less than Original you can also argue that
Window's took it's inspiration from Apple.
Windows 10 is an ad delivery platform, has an in build Key Logger
And also much more spyware.
It is a good operating system if you get rid of the problem's but only then and I have had more freeze up's and crashed with 10 than I ever had with
