Keeping it vaguely music related
My milestone in PC music came with the increased HDD drive space. I remember the hard drives went from my 1st proper pc’s 20mb (good old 286 with ms dos) to 40mb, 80, 120, 240, 512mb, 1gb (woohoo), 3.2gb, and so on. Around 20gb started to make sense for a healthy start to make an mp3 collection, although i don’t quite remember when it really started.
I think the main evolution into PC music came for me around the late 90’s when i got a CD duplicator on my PC and was the talk of my circle of friends and relations as I could copy CD’s (at a full 1x speed!) at reasonable cost which beat cassettes hands down!
Then a couple of years later I got my first HD based walkman device which was the creative ZEN with 60GB of space. Now that was wonderful. A real gamechanger…
I ripped all my CD’s to WMA format, as MP3 was not really a “standard” back then.
Its really been downhill since then, lol
