@edheil Yep! The 1980s culture of your personal computer being your *personal* computer. Air-gapped by default. An operating system in BIOS that would last the machines entire life, and could be instantly reset. If you wanted software, you made a deliberate choice to install it. If you didn't have a disk in the drive and the cover latched at boot, you knew you literally *could not get* a virus.
I don't know how to recover that level of trust that we had back then. But we've lost something big.
