There was recently an office cleanup and plenty of old hardware was going to waste.
On the middle of these things, I've found a little treasure box: a ThinkPad 760D laptop from 1995.
What's more, it has a fully functional Windows 95 installed inside.
Included was a floppy drive (proprietary connector), a CD-ROM and a PCMCIA card with LAN network adapter. The floppy drive is working but isn't very practical to move software back and forth. The CD reader seems broken and won't read discs with data, but the LAN adapter was really useful.
I discovered that LAN access is still working and was able to access other devices. Internet Explorer from this time was OK but limited and so tried looking into the FTP command for exchanging files. It worked OK with another laptop on the same LAN acting as FTP server, the main difficulty was remembering again how to push/pull files around.
Got WinZip installed but it kept failing to decompress files because the modern compressors use more memory than what was available on the laptop. I'm now getting the machine ready for some good old time games that I miss from the 90s.
Any tips on what to add on this machine while keeping Windows 95 inside?
