So it's agreed upon to the world that MS DOS=the most superior type of computer?

Bull, everyone knows its a tie between the ZX spectrum, a hamster powered edition of Babbage's analytical engine, and an iMac G1 running Dex OS.

I didn't know DOS was a type of computer. In fact, I'm pretty sure it's not, so Nay would be the appropriate vote here. I vividly remember using DOS and knew my way around it pretty well. Well enough to distinctly remember that it was not a type of computer.

The most superior type of computer is the typewriter!


I still have one, never was I able to successfully operate one...
I just have it as display like my Xbox 1


Might be able to help you there. It doesn't actually need electricity, I've tried before. The only thing it needs are paper-thin disks which you sort of insert at the top.


You know some typewriters actually need electricity, right?

This one, for example:

Requires electricity. Its an amazing one though. I have one that still works. ^^


It doesn't run Crysis, however... :p


I actually learned to type on an electric typewriter. Well, "officially" learned to type, in terms of homerow and stuff. And electric was pretty crappy compared to mechanical in terms of typing speed - I'd always end up typing faster than the typewriter could keep up with, and once the letter impacts aren't matching up with your fingers any more, it gets pretty distracting and much easier to make typos.
