  • Brittains oldest computer is turned back on -- Demands for "Brains! BRAAAINSS!!"

    Okay, that last part I made up. It's not a zombie, it's a WITCH.

    http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2009/...dest-computer/

    Constructed before almost all of us at Petri were born... in fact it was retired before many of us here were born. It's now been brought back to life. No word yet on when they'll attempt to make it a Halo team server. Actually, I think WITCH's younger sister is being used as the email server at the local community college here in Cincinnati.

    Will it run Windows 2008 or Windows 7?
    If not, why isn't Microsoft backwards compatible for those machines?
