* I tried to run the Solaris versions of shareware Doom on the SPARC machines at my workplace, but they wouldn't go.&nbsp; I suspect that said machines (a) are six or seven years younger than that program and (b) contain the kind of horribly misconfigured kernels that only an overworked committee of individually intelligent people can supply.
* I tried to install the shareware version of Doom95 on the Windows 2000 machines at my workplace, but couldn't do so because I do not have root access (or whatever that's called in Windows 2000).
* I tried to get Doom running on the Mac OS X machines with which I am acquainted (again with no special privileges), but didn't see anything I felt like writing about.&nbsp; The Classic version ran at about 3 fps, Legacy developed paralyzing keybinding issues after a few seconds, and Doomsday was so non-vanilla that I personally could not recommend it to a first-time player with a straight face.
If I am making any errors important enough to be worth mentioning, please do so.&nbsp; :>&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; [[User:Ryan W|Ryan W]] 09:40, 6 February 2006 (UTC)
