Comments: "... we hunched around an old IRIS 2400 Turbo playing this amazing flight simulator game from Silicon Graphics, Inc.". Modern personal computers in the 90's are now as powerful as graphics workstations of the 80's.

Michael I Gold remembers I remember the days when:

" ... we hunched around an old IRIS 2400 Turbo playing this amazing flight simulator game from Silicon Graphics, Inc. I thought, "I'd like to work for that company !" And so I did, for eight wonderful years.

Time passes and computers just keep getting faster. Modern personal computers in the 90's are now as powerful as graphics workstations of the 80's.

That old Flight demo now runs on a PC with no hardware acceleration !"
