Ok, now put your dirty little minds back in the gutter.
Back in the day (1985ish), I was at work and heard a commotion from outside in the hall. I saw one of the Xenix developers holding a box that was about the size of a shoebox.
“Look at this! Do you know what it is?!”
“I’ll bite, no, what is it?”
“It’s a 70 MEGABYTE HARD DISK!! Isn’t it amazing?!”
We had never seen anything with that kind of capacity. This disk was actually big enough that you could put the source to Xenix AND a running copy of the operating system ON THE SAME HARD DISK!
DOS in those days was limited to 32M disks (DOS sector sizes were 512 bytes in size, and the disk drivers received their requests in 16 bit integers, which meant that the disk drivers could only address 32M of disk). This wasn’t fixed until DOS 3.31 in 1987.
My times have changed. I saw the other day that LaCie is now selling a disk drive with a terabyte of capacity.
