A friend of mine has a bunch of old laptops from the 1990's. I'll see if he can get Windows 7 on there.

(they) timed the installation for a Pentium III-based system at a low 17 continuous hours. And the boot time? 17 minutes.

Oh the humanity!
The funny thing is, that box would boot up DOS in 17 seconds and be pretty fast running DOS apps.

Good 'ole DOS 3.3, the whole operating system would fit on one floppy and run on an Intel 8088 CPU with 32KB of memory.
