Thread: The 386 is truly dead... right?

    If you want to browse modern Web pages with a 386 machine , install OS/2 4.0 or Ecomstation for that matter. Firefox is being updated - ported. Great OS for the nostalgic user, who wants to access the internet.

    OS/2 v4 is way too bloated for a 386 system. It'll be too slow. Even v3 will be laggy.

And what about BBS, or services that don't use the internet, but can allow the systems to make and receive communications with the outside world?
    Exactly what 386 system, specs/ram/hdd are we talking about here?
