Do you remeber setting jumpers on your sound card and then configuring each app to talk to it? Do you remember having multiple boot disks with different TSRs loaded so that you can have just enough of your 640k to start a game and have your mouse driver work? Do you remember how you didn't have example code you could easily find after an easy Google search that you could just copy from your browser and paste into your IDE all without preventing your family members from using the phone?

Bitching about the bloat of a modern Windows install in comparison to a floppy-based version of DOS is like complaining about how many miles per gallon a Boeing passenger gets compared to your scooter.
