@th win 95 came on 13 floppies. At one floppy per thread, you could install it from cache and still have room for slackware on the same socket

@djsundog @phooky modern DRAM is so challenging to initialize that the cpu runs in Cache-As-RAM (CAR) mode until it the x86 firmware blob has finished link training.
