When I was young, personal computing was still in its infancy. Everything was still fairly new including music and graphics on a computer screen or in my case, television screen. Watching an animation or beautiful graphic appear on screen while I waited for a program to load kept my attention. The following video are some of those load screens. Keep in mind, I edited the video in such a way that it appears the load times are faster than they really are.
Back in the late 1970’s, early 1980’s, you had to be very patient when using a computer. Loading a program from a digital data cassette or floppy disk was not a fast process. Today, if an application doesn’t start-up within a few seconds, I usually uninstall it from my hard drive and look for something else.
