Wonder if Pentium-IV systems will ever be popular among retro-enthusiasts?
I asked this question about 486 through Pentium III rigs some odd 10 years ago and got mixed results. In fact I may have gotten more no's then yes. Today Windows98 and the appropriate processors to run the OS are becoming popular among enthusiasts. Vintage DOS and W98 rigs are gaining in popularity!
So, today, I ask the same thing about those Pentium-4 NetBurst processors. Will they be nostalgic?
side note: Seems 8086 through 386 didn't make the cut much except among "specialty-enthusiasts". At the height of their nostalgia, they weren't at popular as the 486 through P3 range is becoming. I might also argue, the 486 is almost ready to fall out of favor.
