On the eve of the launch of Windows 10, Ian Vella remembers the early days of operating systems.
You hit the power button and nothing happens. Your computer screen is dead. Well, not completely dead because against a black screen, a blinking grey box winks back at you, expecting you to type something.
No, there’s nothing wrong with your computer – it’s just a quick trip down memory lane. If you remember this scenario, then like me, you are probably over 30 years old and can probably better appreciate today’s operating systems which are light years ahead of the old systems.
