    i dont believe that was even possible. dos 5 was the first dos that could actually be upgraded from a previous version.

    That is actually pretty damn cool.

    Though I was disappointed he didn't include ME. Yes, 2000 technically came first, but ME was still the older technology.

    my understanding is that he excluded ME because it was not a major release. and yes, it is pretty damn cool!

    Only if the upgrades really did take as long as the video itself...

    Pretty impressive how some of the old files and games were still there like Doom 2 and MI.
