    Indeed it was. The OG Xbox used a custom Pentium III 733MHz, a custom Nvidia NV2A GPU (based on the GeForce 3), and 64 megs of DDR 200MHz. The original operating system (Xbox Dashboard) was a heavily modified Windows XP, meaning it used the same basic kernel with modified Windows log files. This also means the console was able to utilize DirectX 8.1, meaning full PC ports of games shouldn't be difficult at all. It's also where the console got its name: The (Direct)Xbox.

    The only sixth generation console I'm missing is a GameCube. I have a later Xbox, a slim PS2 (same one from when I was a kid), and a Sega Dreamcast. I also have all of the seventh gen consoles (Xbox 360, PS3 (slightly broken), Wii), one 4th gen console in the form of a PS1 with a bad laser, and a first gen console: my NES.

    What is with all these "Fidget Spinners?" I swear I can't go anywhere in town without seeing at least one kid with one. There was a whole stand at the mall selling them. I just don't get it. It spins. That's it. Yay, so exciting. (Sarcasm intensifies)

    It "cures" ADHD, or so they say. It's supposed to help you focus, but it just distracts everyone else instead.

    Well then maybe it just took a little longer to get to my area.
    Sounds like something that one kid has in a classroom and suddenly the next day everyone has one.

    I still have our first Packard Bell somewhere with the original W98 on it. As well as the screen, keyboard, mouse, speakers, and probably cables tbh.
    If Windows Xp was supporting DX11/DX12 I would probably still used it. Was running better and it had Clippy. And the Yellow dog, don't know his name through

    And it doesn't work like a fidget. I have issues where I need to fidget. A friend let me borrow a fidget spinner, and it did nothing. It's not a fidget, just an annoyance.
    At least you don't have an idiot friend who triggered the health teacher by saying that "Fidget spinners cause ADHD". Not to mention his other famous quote "Cyberbullying isn't real".

    To be fair, there is probably some truth in that Fidget Spinners make most people fidget more.

    They actually cause more problems than they solve.
