Bah humbug. It taught a generation how to fit a program into 1/16/32/48/64K!

Now we have Win10 where 'Photos' takes up 100MB just to run a slideshow. Or do something in the background that consumes 100MB. I did a slideshow with wipes & dissolves on my trusty old C64. Admittedly the images were somewhat simpler, and it was a lot easier to stop it running.

(He says, doing the old man grumble having figured out how to kill off Photos.. for now, at least.)
