I disagree. It was a right bloody pain in the arse.
I think you should report that Mac for aggravated rape (and maybe make yourself some pocket money in the process?).
My sister got an iMac to go to uni and the sodding thing came with USB only.
Hey, maybe she should carry that iMac around with her everywhere she goes on campus, and there's her art project for the final year?
USB sticks didn't exist more or less and besides, USB on PCs was so flakey that had they existed they would have been unusable.
Well, if I remember correctly, back then those USB sticks were bigger (physically, I mean, not memory-wise), so they were not completely useless...
The solution of course was to get a USB Floppy drive for exchanging data with people.
Well, another advantage of the usb sticks. Those never went floppy.
Oh and the scanner. Oh my god. Ever tried running a scanner on USB1? Now that is a good way to learn patience. Scanning needed to be done, but that thing was so slow. Much.
You womenfolk are never happy. Often we're to quick for you, and now you complain about slowness...
The USB port was far slower than the scanner hardware. It would zip along, stop, upload data, zip along etc etc. I swear it took minutes per page, or worse.
hehe, maybe you should get a USB car instead, with a little bit of luck, it would zip along, stop, produce some petrol, zip along, etc. And then you could sell that petrol to the other people, whose car consumes petrol instead...
Oh yeah and then there was the sodding puck mouse. Wretched thing. Third party USB mice did exist fortunately, but they weren't all that common, weren't all that reliable and were expensive too, compared to the infinite number of quality PS/2 mice around.
But that mouse sure would feel nice in your cunt....
Legacy free is fine, but they were about 5 years too early.
A, there you go! Complaining again about being too early!
