A simple question and I guess that I may be left feeling stupid by some short answers, but...
Given todays technology and the ability to pack many times the address space into ROM's than say 10 years ago,
Why can't computers run the way the Commodore/Amiga computers used to where the OS (workbench) was in ROM
Back then, the chip (workbench 1.1 or 1.3 or 2) was simply a ROM upgrade,
the rest that was needed for programs was loded with the program.
My main question I guess is, of all the things that is loaded for windows to run, is it all needed ?
Can what is needed to run windows be crammed into one of todays ROMS ?
Something along the lines of miniPE in ROM.
Do I make any sense here and am I about to be slammed
Cheers and thanks for any replies
