SLOWDOWN is a program that temporarily Slows Down your computer, so that
it runs like one of the older, slower computers. Of course, nowadays
people generally think that the faster a computer runs, the better --
why would anyone ever want to slow a computer down? Believe it or not,
there are a some really good reasons.

The first reason is that there are many very good, useful (old) programs
that were designed to run on these old, slow computers, and they do not
run correctly on a newer, faster computer. The old programs either
don't run at all (they "blow up" -- the computer either totally locks up
or you get a "Run-time Error" of some sort), :P or they run in such a way
that you can't use them.About the only kinds of programs that really seemed to have problems
were ones that required lots of "real-time" interaction with the user
(like arcade-type games). In my opinion, any program that requires such
"real-time" interaction should be designed to run on any computer, no
matter how fast (or how slow) it is.... :P

Microsoft is including this feature in its new operating system. No additional software is needed - just install Vista and try to run any application! With XP you had to install Norton or McAfee to achieve the same effect as Slowdown 2.00
