Things I liked about 80's/90's computing:
- Total control over my hardware
- Software that worked with me, not against me
- Superior aesthetics (yeah I said it :3 )
- Overall sense of promise and freedom

Things I like about computing today:
- Easy and open access to knowledge
- Insane amounts of storage
- The sheer computing POWERRRR

Now if only we could make these attributes come together instead of being period exclusive. :blobthinking:


@polychrome i very much want this. there is no technical reason why it can't work that way, it's just because capitalism

@KitRedgrave I think this one's happening irregardless of the economic system. The masses want to use the computer as a consumer device and this is what it turned into.

@polychrome @KitRedgrave yeah, but, remember when you could switch the batteries in phones?

remember when android was open source??
