Why Old Computer Systems Are Often Better

Backwards compatibility mean when computer operating systems or computer software seems to work together in perfect harmony, even if one system is different or slightly older. In fact, quite often old computer systems and software are better than their modern counterparts. Here is why.

​Z/OS Multi Factor Authentication Software

How you go about authenticating anyone or anything in business anymore is important. Not all authentication software is created equal either. Many modern programs have major bugs, even after they have been cleared for release and sale to companies.

That is not the case with z/OS multi factor authentication software. If you are not aware, z/OS is a backward compatibility operating system that actually supports a number of modern systems with great efficacy. That says a lot for an operating system that is over forty years old!

In the process of supporting your business hardware, you will need the proper authentication software to clearance new and current employees. This is just one example of software that works with older operating systems that work with modern computers. The best part is that it all works so perfectly together that you would never guess that your company's operating system is so old, even with all of its updates since its first inception.

64-Bit? Yep, Still Working

Originally, x/OS was made for old Commodore 64 and IBM computers. Then it was used for gaming consoles. Now, it is beneath many gaming consoles, but is actually still in use as an operating system for computers and mainframes. It still works quite well in these capacities, too. 

Super Power Countries Cannot Crack Your Code

Sending coded messages in old encryption from twenty to thirty years ago is more than a puzzle. It is a frustrating hassle for anyone in IT who is younger than twenty-five. That said, a lot of government agencies have taken to sending coded messages in outdated bit encryption.

Not only does it work for the purpose intended, but it would take the "enemy's" oldest and most experienced computer programmers to figure out what was said and how it was sent as a secret transmission. By the time they figure that out, the government is able to transmit messages, decode them, and then destroy them. Only third world/underdeveloped countries with really old computers would even know what the code was, and even then, most people with a really old computer in those countries would not be looking for ways to intercept and crack government messages.
