Started with Windows 1, which was on floppies that you loaded at a DOS prompt. No pictures of that old machine. I was a reseller in the Finger Lakes of NY for many years. Sold and set up 1000's of machine over the years including many Small Business Servers. I always said that some day I wished I could get the 100's of hours back spent loading Windows. Now I just use an iMac, my Dell laptop just on my desk hardly used, crashes alot, can't be bothered to fix and upgrade it.

Was actually quite impressed right now when i popped open the system information. 8 gigs of ram, i5-6500 quad core. I complained one day over a year ago about blue screen of death and the next day I came in and found this. I was using a 13 year old all-in-one with an intel core duo and 2 gigs of ram.

A new build for the wife and I. I also dislike Windows like NYR99, but not enough to pay the difference for a Mac Pro and a Mac Mini. Sticking to a MacBook Pro for laptops though...

AMD Ryzen 3950x and 3600
Msi Gaming X Trio RTX 2080Ti and GT 1030
64GB and 16GB DDR4
2 x Dell 38" 1600p and 1 x 32" LG 1440p
