Retweeted by Martin Beeby@MSFTY I think you can expect even further finessing of the visuals.@Nemplo haha.I think you'd need to spin up 2 maybe 3 of Azures largest VMs to have the same memory as all of the C64s ever sold ;) #azure@PaulAdamDavis I still have one. Try and use it... You won't believe how long you used to be willing to wait for things to load.@MSFTY I got used to it, however, my parents are on Windows 7 for that reason.@Micro_666 haha exactly.The PhotoMath app makes maths homework irrelevant http://t.co/YAkJpZSROS http://t.co/utdUY2gXkC

I suspect one of those 32 core VMs with 448gb of ram would run one ok ;) Might need a new QuickShotAs far as I can calculate if you spun up 20 of Azures largest VMs. You'd have more memory than all of the Amiga 500s ever produced.@xiotex I've ordered a 32gb memory I7 monster for Windows 10 development. But I dream of 448gb memory :)@MSFTY huh?@xiotex two days ago they released an Azure VM with 32 cores, 448 GB RAM and 6.5 TB of local SSD storage.
