MrBuddy - 2011-03-03 Obviously you guys aren't Mac users. I know an evangelical Mac user who still refuses to believe I can get Windows 3.1 programs to run on Windows 7.
memedumpster - 2011-03-03 Ha ha, I was going to make a comment about how when any number changes in a Max OS it loses all compatibility and everyone abruptly stops supporting it.
Udderdude - 2011-03-03 If it's 64-bit Windows, you can't run 16-bit or DOS apps.
Jellyneck - 2011-03-04 Apple went through three major architecture changes, and two or three major API shifts and still managed to have a layer of compatibility between them. You could run a PPC OS 9 carbon program on an intel mac running what is basically NextStep written by a completely different company. That is impressive.
This video shows me that Doom, one of the most popular and widely ported video games ever made, will run on a nicely standard virtual platform resembling nothing actually produced after someone runs a few OS installers and does little of anything else. Fucking boring.
I have to one star this shit because I have seen way too many windows systems become completely unusable from a year of normal use by regular people. I guess it is remarkable that windows will run well if you never actually use it.
badideasinaction - 2011-03-03 Five stars for the surprise of being rather impressed by Microsoft being able to keep things working, more or less.
Jet Bin Fever - 2011-03-04 I bet ME would've screwed everything up!
