My oldest computer is an Amiga 3000T
I still love this computer but it's been a while since I've used regularly.
While Amiga OS 3.1 lacks protected memory, it still does stuff Windows can't.
Also the whole notion of programs providing external access to their menu
choices via an AREXX port that is so universally implemented in Amiga software
is something that's still sorely lacking in the rest of the consumer computing
My laptop computer is a Toshiba 5205-S703. I got this one for taking with me
on boats, and it's the one I use the most these days. It runs Win XP Professional.
I plan to add Linux as soon as System Commander's repartitioning software can run
on a computer without a floppy drive. One thing I especially like doing with a
laptop when I'm home is taking it to my local laundramat that has a video rental
next door and watching a rented dvd movie (and usually eating pizza) while waiting
for my laundry.
My newer desk computer is a PowerMac G4 733. It does most of the talking
to my (Epson Stylus Photo 2000P) printer and (UMAX Powerlook III & Imacon
Flextight Precision II) scanners. It currently runs Mac OSX 10.2.2. I have the
hardware to network it via wired ethernet to the Amiga and it has an Airport Card
which should talk to the laptop's bult in wireless networking, but I haven't
taken the time to get the software end of the networking straightened out yet.
I may have to wait until Apple or a third party implements software base staion
under OSX or does something else to let that computer form ad-hoc wireless networks
with non Apple computers. It may be that this is now possible (it ought to be,
considering how networking friendly Unix (from which OSX was built) is. It's
a project for the near future.
