Lost in Space, I remember seeing that movie. The ironic thing is that in the movie, set for 2050, the funding for spaceship that goes to other planets is provided by SGI, but 8 or so years after the movie is released, SGI applies for Chapter 6 bankruptcy protection... :p
What else happened in 1998? The 400 MHz Pentium II was "the" chip for gaming...
Having 512 MB of RAM (133 MHz single data rate back then) was like... wow!
People still used CRT monitors...
And Windows 98 came out! I remember that unstable 16/32-bit hybrid OS... I still have a magazine from 1998 that had a feature story about Windows 98. The guy was talking about how "modern" it looked, with its revamped boot splash screen.
C. P. U. Its not a big processor... Its a series of pipes!
