Two of my housemates recently picked up an old 8088 for free. The first, Joe, was overjoyed because, well, it was free and free stuff is good, and it's a computer and computers are good. Chris wasn't so sure. J: Once we get a new video card and a new hard drive in this, it'll run like new. C: So? It's an 8088. What the hell can you do with an 8088? J: Come on. Think of all the stuff they did with computers built thirty years ago. C: Okay, you can get to the moon. What else?
