Yes, times have changed. The old computer is from a time when even 16k was an expensive dream. Even any OS was a luxury. ROMs were just as tiny and there is only so much you can do with that limited space. You can't have drivers or routines for and against everything.

In a paged memory model you can pack your code into modules similar to DLLs. Each module gets its own memory page as if it were the only thing running on the computer. Sound familiar? It's just giving an old processor the same royal treatment as a modern one and suddently the whole computer becomes much more modern as it has any right to be. It's all about teaching a very old dog some new tricksand lack of memory is the most common reason that speak against doing that.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
