On this blog, I write about the different computers I use and the operating systems I use on them. Besides Windows 7, which is relatively modern, these include Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard, which at this point is quite old, and Mac OS 9, which is practically old. I would like to talk a bit about why I use such old systems.
A good succinct answer to the question asked. I like to use older systems not out of nostalgia, but just to learn, to experiment with systems that I couldn’t experience when they were current because I was too young or the hardware was too expensive. A few posts down, I mentioned that I was about to buy an old HP-UX workstation, and I can’t wait to get my hands dirty and learn as much as I can about it.
