I remember installing Borland C++ with stacks of floppies, it felt like 50 but probably more like 30 or so. It took half a day.

But when you got it installed, finally, you felt like you earned it.

Oh man, yea...I never installed anything with THAT many disks...I think the biggest one was 7 or 8 floppies...which took several hours.

I kinda miss those days. Sometimes.
