Russia’s Retro Lenin Museum Still Runs on Decades-Old Apple II Computers

 

Quote

 

The versatility of the Apple II made it one of the most widespread personal computers of the 1970s and 80s. In schools, labs, and even command centers, these classic American computers kept a foothold even after the advent of more advanced machines. But of all the places you’d expect to find the computer that popularized The Oregon Trail, the mournful museum of a Communist leader is one of the most unlikely.

Lenin Museum in Gorki Leninskiye, located 20 miles south of Moscow, doesn’t look hi-tech even by 1980s standards. But among black marble interiors, gilded display cases, and Soviet historical documents, there is an elaborate audiovisual show about the last years of Vladimir Lenin’s life. Opened in 1987, it’s still powered by vintage Apple technology.

My mentor and technical inspiration at General Foods had one of these. It was the first microcomputer I had ever seen. He used it to program in BASIC and analyse factorial experiments. That was a LONG time ago.

 That is kind of impressive. That was one of the first computers that I used in grammar school playing Oregon Trail and other games. Well, we had some math crap on them as well but who's counting that?

Bloomin amazin more like. That pc has been running on a daily basis for 30 + years and is still running. I like the irony of the ruskis using merican tech. 😂
