Sad thing is there is more than you think who still use these things as their main computers, and expect to find items like printers, scanners, and even software that run on them.

My first PC was an 80386SX running at 8MHz, with a 13" CRT. It had 1MB of RAM and a 40MB hard drive. But it could play Wolfenstein 3D and thats all I cared about.
