If you wish to step into a time machine and travel backwards to the 1980s where the adventure began, read on after the break.

i actually had to get a floppy drive a few years ago for school. I took a course that was about DOS. I ran Win98 in a virtual machine to do my homework, since 98 still supported DOS.
