The UK is suffering some pretty extreme weather at the moment, as is much of Europe I think.
I must admit to a little soft spot for a lot of ‘legacy’ equipment/technology. Somehow it often seems a little less brittle than the more recent stuff.
What new things can you think of that are worse than what they replaced, and why?
Here are a couple to get you started:
new VSTO, old VBA, why worse? not well integrated, unsuitable languages
new VISTA, old Win XP, why worse? slow, pointless, incompatible
new wooden flooring, old carpets, why worse? cold and hard
new front wheel drive, old rear wheel drive, why worse? no power slides
Subjective, of course, one sided, for sure.
What old stuff do you prefer and why?
(don’t worry all you young pups, we’ll have a ‘why modern stuff is better than that old out of date crap’ post in the new year, probably)
