The reason they were able to do it was because they were dealing with limited color range and low resolution displays. It's not like they had much computing power left over to drive a Office suite or do any other form of multitasking.

That's all.

Try making that old Risc machine drive a modern LCD display with Alpha blending and see how far you get.
