I don’t think the author of that article means getting a PC XT computer to run his old software. A PC XT is a 4.77mhz 8088 which won’t run his required 32 bit Windows XP operating system/Mach3 etc.
Many are still running Mach3, I do. I run it on fairly new modern computer hardware.
Thanks Jim he might be pointing at an old PC. I haven’t seen an XT in years😂
I can’t wait to get my hands on a Super Gerbil board, building a machine just for it!
I just noticed your super gerbil board. Is your Stm32f103 grbl source available? I know there is a GitHub stm32 version but it 1.1e and hasn’t been updated.
I have a f103 board laying around and would like to compile and test the firmware if possible.
He sure did say hourding XTs to install XP onto… wow
