RCR Episode 191: Re: recapping

Panelists: Paul Hagstrom (hosting), Earl Evans, Jack Nutting, and Carrington Vanston

Topic: Re: recapping

Topic: Revoking end of life status

There have been a few modern updates to operating systems that were long done with development, e.g., ProDOS, GS/OS, DOS 4.1 in the Apple world. And new plugins and things made for old systems. Um. Thoughts?
