yep (but the xt's remained in the library till 2000 or so)
I skipped the 286 and got a monster with a 80386sx@25Mhz and 2mb Ram.. what a difference..... Doom ran perfect on that thing, but then they had to make quake....
Driving really slowly is often an indication the driver is old, doesn't see very well or drunk and trying not to bump into anything. As a police officer you want to take a look at such cases. Is this guy fit to drive? I got pulled over once and asked to do an alcohol test when my car was filled with furniture that I didn't bother securing for a 5 minute drive and I wanted it to stay upright. I asked why they put me aside and they said I was driving 20km/h below the limit within the city and that made them suspicious.
You could still buy brand new PX/XT clones at the end of the eighties. They where good enough for most of the dos software of the day and hose things where generally very well built and lasted many years.
I never had an infection even on XP..... only window 98 got borked once, an installation that was clean for 5+ years till I clicked a link on Google, the browser crashed, windows hung & after restarting I got ads everywhere. That's when I switched to xp.
