    Did PCs have solitaire in 1986?

    If he’d thrown in a screenshot of the horribly ugly, low-res, no-windows displays that MS-DOS had in 1986, it would be a fair comparison. I remember thinking that while color would be nice, I’d take the Mac display over that lousy color DOS look any day.

    I wish I had bought stock in Apple in 1986. The $2000 I spent on a Mac SE in January 1988 would be worth about $70,000 now. If only I’d spent it on shares instead of a machine and just used the computer lab instead.

    The Mac was way ahead of the PC in usability back then. I don’t think Windows even existed until the early ’90s, at least not in a form anyone could take seriously. I remember all the trouble I went through to get Windows installed on an old Zenith 248. I took a look at the graphics, said “hmm”, or some such, and went back to the command line.
