Split from plug-and-play / need references
Since Plug And Play is a term marketed by Microsoft and Intel, primarily in the 1980s, and the ability to plug and play predates that and has expanded beyond that (e.g. hotplugging) and this dissonance was causing NPOV and accuracy issues in the original article, I split them and moved this stuff here. It's a lot more accurate now, but still needs references. --Nil0lab 18:32, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
Microsoft (and BIOS makers) still uses the term to refer to PCI / AGP / etc. plug and play devices to this day (for example, see "Windows On/Off Transition Performance Analysis" by MS circa April 11,2011)... is this all subsumed in the ACPI article? This article seems to say it is only or primarily for ISA devices. While that may have been true in 199x, it is misleading today.22.214.171.124 (talk) 06:19, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
More Plug And Plays
Doh. Given the existence of UPnP, NPnP, etc., this page probably should be ISA Plug And Play instead of Plug And Play. No time to fix now... --Nil0lab 19:18, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
Please, rename this page as "ISA Plug And Play" 126.96.36.199 17:20, 2 December 2007 (UTC)
- Okay, I've moved this as requested, and changed all the redirects to go to the other Plug-and-play article.
- This one is now practically orphaned since only that article links here. But looking through the list of redirects I really don't see anything else at the moment that should be linking to here.
Has Legacy PnP been removed from Windows post-Vista/2008 Server?
This article links to an archived page date 17 March 2007, saying MS expects to remove it from future versions. But has this actually happened, and if so, when? Searching MS website doesn't immediately give any answers.
