Dude, decades ago, I worked for a company that shipped 386 Unix on 50 floppies. So that image just hurts.

Especially Newsweek. Oh, wait. Never mind.

Hey. At least they had the foresight to go with that new 3.5" disk technology. Granted, not everyone will have upgraded their PC XTs to such a high level. But I think we should commend the Obama Administration for not getting stuck in the past.

Oh, good Lord, Numem; read the article! You need at least a 386 and 8 megs of RAM to run 2.0.

That's a whole lotta computer power, right there.

Besides, the XTs are still in use. By the FBI and the White House.

Where'd they get that many floppies? Don't the healthcare.gov servers need them?

You sure they aren't DSDD 8"? You need those for the TRS80 Model 12 backend.
