Things Are Coming Together
It’s been a while since the last post. Things haven’t quite taken off as quickly as I had hoped. However, life intervenes at the most inopportune moments.
Moving to a new place and celebrating the holiday season interfered with progress of the RetroX86 Studio. Progress has been made over the weekend. Still, it will always be under construction as things change throughout life. Despite everything, the world won’t hold still.
That said, I am looking forward to celebrating old personal computing history with all of you.
The old adage of, “Before you know where you’re going, you’ve gotta know where you’ve been.” happens to be the overall theme of this site. The idea is to celebrate the past and appreciate just how far we’ve come. The fact that PC gaming on the go is now a thing is nothing short of miraculous, even with system specs that would appear to be minimal at first glance.
Things have gotten more complicated in the ways that our operating systems and apps function, so it’s a good feeling to appreciate the simplicity that older software provides while understanding the limitations.
All in all, the idea of doing this site had been in my mind for some time. I wanted a way to bring a smile to everyone’s face and what better way to do that than to show off some cool stuff.
