    both are good, 1987 is more professional, 1980 is more warez-like (or like a band logo)

    also, their definition of 'smart' probably has a lot to do with increased profits, among other user experience unrelated things, which mostly arrive per default, as alternative OS-s aren't up to the task yet


    Parable of the Two Birds

    Two birds, beautiful of wings, close companions, cling to one common tree: of the two one eats the sweet fruit of that tree; the other eats not but watches his companion. The self is the bird that sits immersed on the common tree; but because he is not lord he is bewildered and has sorrow. But when he sees that other who is the Lord and the beloved, he knows that all is His greatness and his sorrow passes away from him...

    The company is so fucked up now... Even by their logo you actually can tell they had smart key people in the company back then and not morons like now.
    I have images disabled, but as soon as I read the text I knew which company you were talking about...

    And yes, that 1980 logo is something you'd expect to see in the drums of a rock band

    This is my favorite kind of installer: Ld8Uy.jpg
    Have no idea what installer is it but I love those progress bars. Very professional installer with realtime view of CD and Floppy drive usage and HDD space. You don't see that today.
    Back then, functionality and usability was the basis of computing. Nowdays it's only eye-candy. To look good even if it doesn't work.

    I never really knew what they were supposed to represent. An icon of a hard disk and "Low" written below sounds like low-level disk activity or something

    PS: I believe this is an old version of the WISE Installer. The first version of Half-Life used the same one.

    I always thought that Microprose copied Microsoft's logo and some other stuff. If you look at this intro, you'll find their quite similar:

    The tragedy of knowing and liking this kind of stuff is
    1. you need money to get them from the so-called collectors that are only interested in the money
    2. you need a place to store them
    3. you require big desks to use them on, old hardware are more bulkier in size than newer hardware.

    Wish I had the money to buy a big mansion with separate room for specialized gaming gaming. 1980s gaming room, 1990s gaming room, 2k gaming room and so on. With the look and feel of those days... A big room used as a library for CDs, and floppies and original books. I would die a happy man.

    then you could invite sbi members for a few weeks vacation in your mansion where everyone would be gaming through these era's
    those not into gaming could be amazed by your electricity bills and such

    The first point can be less of a problem than you think. So many people are standing on goldmines, don't know (or care about) the value of what they have, and will sell it to you super cheap, or even give it away. See this and guess who anon123 is

    However, no. 2 and 3 speak to me and are a big letdown. I would collect so much stuff and never throw away anything if I could. But I had to get rid of or leave behind so many things, because this apartment is so small...

    Which is your favorite? I think I like the 1995 one the most.

    Every time a new version of Windows was released, I thought "there are no more ways they could reinvent the logo after this"... I was wrong, of course
