I was looking for a music cd and came across 2 cd's of PCW back issues

July 96 - June 98 and June 95 - July 97

I remember someone mentioning PCW so kept them out,  If anyone would
like them they are welcome to them,  a good way to dive in to computing

pdf format files (sorry tom) and you need 486 or above and a massive
Ram, (lol) and win3.1 the pdfs are also printable apparently



Do any of them have any adverts for the AMD 486DX4-100 CPU? Actually
that might be circa 1994.  I just remember it being really funny,
something along the lines of "100 reasons why the AMD 486DX4-100 is
better than an Intel Pentium" with one of the reasons about it being
able to do maths correctly (in reference to the early Pentium DIV
bug?). :-)


I've got a 50MHz 486 upstairs with a gig of ram inside that I cant
seem to part with. It used to outperform the pentium 70 and was not
far behind the 120. Ran Yggdrassil with a 0.91 kernel
ISTR it booted faster than Unity on my 4 core 2.5Ghz AMD....
Tom te tom tom

I remember that distro, and 0.91 kernel must have been one of the really
early releases. I started a little later kernel 1.0.5 on slackware,  i
am sure the cd with that on is still around somewhere.


CD? You were lucky - that was 30 floppies!
