Heh, many of my device programming tools are *old* and require a PC with
real parallel port and/or serial ports. I suspect that there are modern
USB version, but why fool around with something that works?
My go-to-system for such things is an old socket A PC that has an Athlon
XP-M hacked into it running at about 2.3GHz. It's not awful on most
things, but web browsing is very sluggish--it never used to
be--something I attribute to more cruft-laden website code.
At any rate--I do my browsing on a contemporary system and ftp over any
file content needed. Works just fine.
