Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

Anyone who uses google for anything is begging to be pretty-please bent over the rain barrel and butt-raped with a 12" dildo LoL :lol: Thought Zeda must be the one you are talking about. She is a "scientist" (so she makes herself called), and she insists on using google-documents app...

yup, measured on Envizex's diagnostic mem-usage :)

Why not? I see a good ratio between energy/computing power. And it's also cheap, and well supported by compilers.

Re: A Guide on Your Options for non-x86 Computers (2017)

Apple will switch to ARM for low end MacBooks once the economy of doing so makes sense. It makes sense for iPad and tablets, it doesn't really make sense for MacOSX, therefore I expect it will be 'iOS-laptop'. Something you can use for browsing, taking pictures, listening music, and videochat Apple...

Re: How do you explain....

I am building a new Xterm, made with Linux and X11R7, on a PowerPC embedded board.
Why? Because I like 'network computing' (NC) approach, and it's also an useful exercise for me.

I wish I had knowledge and budget for QNX,WxWorks, better kernels ...

Re: which was the best X11(R4)-terminal?

So, I have here an HP Envizex P (not mine). It's the fastest version @ 33Mhz, but it's not so nice as expected. It's big, heavy, all ok, but It makes noise. Also, it seems 38MB of ram isn't enough to load a Windows Manager :shock: !?! Crazy. is the Motif Windows Manager bigger than MIT Windows Manag...

Re: How do you explain....

the computers are more interesting than modern ones. We go in circle. Modern computers are boring and less interesting, but they have power and software, which makes them more interesting for practical purposes, e.g. if you have to design your own PCB and build your own HOME made electronics. Old c...

Re: which was the best X11(R4)-terminal?

This article was useful for me to identify the second generation of tek-68k models and the CPU they use: tek25,27,29 / MC68030. Unfortunately I don't have references and notes about their software. Was it Texware? Did Version 7 (released on tek200s) support them? And which was the bootfile? "/t...
