Default Re: back in the day when hard drives were realllllllllllllly small :)

The first ever computer, had a speed of like 10 Mhz you know, with about 2KB RAM, AND 10KB drives. And did you know that someone said that the average family user would never ever need a hard drive over the capacity of 20KB?

Mad, hey..

When word was first programmed, and released, it was just like notepad! And most files were like 0.1-5KB. I might scan it in the old articles and show you them all.
