  • @whistler2250 said: Windows 10 is a great OS. It runs fast and snappy on even old hardware. As for the "bloat", it's ridiculously exaggerated and you can remove it all. As for the telemetry, it's not anything special, at least that is isn't alrea…
  • @eli573 said: I'm looking for any games to play on a laptop that is absolutely terrible. The specs are as follows: *Intel Core (Not 2) Duo 1.66GHz, model T2300, 667MHz FSB if it means anything. 32Bit. *1536 MB of RAM *80 GB SATA I (1…
  • @psychobat said: Ebay or craigslist. Honestly though, you're probably not going to find something newer than a T40 with that type of budget. If you absolutely need a laptop and that's all you have, I'd take a look at craigslist. There is…
  • @SistemaRayoXP said: @calvinb said: it turns out people that the people hating an OS in the present will often cling onto it and claim it was "the last good one" in the future see: XP You are partially right…
  • @droem said: @Bry89 said: He probably thinks that Windows 10 is still the steaming turd that we all knew it as. I'm sceptical if it even has improved since its original release, mind you... Oh, It’s pretty stable, star…
  • @SistemaRayoXP said: In a future, Windows could be revived from it's EOS dead for mysterious reasons. Just don't lose hope!! And maybe the answer to our prayers will be the OpenSource and Free Software, I think it just needs refining itself. …
  • @SistemaRayoXP said: Bry89, check this now: http://gs.statcounter.com/windows-version-market-share/desktop/worldwide/#monthly-201612-201712 I have bad news: For my country, Mexico, Windows 10 reached 7 in August 2017 In the US Windows…
  • @nick99nack said: Well, XP (SP2 & 3) was/is a simple, fast and stable OS. It also had a huge install base from everyone upgrading from the 9x series and due to the long amount of time between XP and the release of Vista. And we all know how V…
  • @SistemaRayoXP said: I agree partially with you OldNewComputers, in my personal experience, the post-XP oses like Vista, 7 and 10 trust more in the graphic card, in fact, I can run 7 fairly fine, I can run Chrome and Office, some Halo CE and XP e…
  • @Bry89 said: That's the one I'm meaning :P And hey, the bloatware in this wasn't all that bad At least it's not like what Lenovo laptops of today are crammed with. I mean, with some computers, the includes software is useful - you're rig…
  • @neozeed said: I like Windows 10. Which I know puts me in the minority. It's faster than 7, and 8... well shit 8 was beyond shit. I'm really loving the Linux subsystem! Although it made stuff like my port of Dynamips to native MinGW redundant…
  • @Bry89 said: @OldNewComputers said: So this recovery disk would be a Win98 SE install disk, plus the IBM drivers for the Aptiva? Yes, and if I recall correctly it came with its own set of goodies also like the famous "…
  • @BF10 said: @WinCollector said: Fun fact: Windows Longhorn 3718 has a diffrent OOBE music. Yep, it is "No Hay Problema" by Pink Martini. Also one question, what are the minimum requirements for the pre-reset bui…
  • @SistemaRayoXP said: Windows 10 has become pretty heavy: About the first half of 2017, I installed Windows 10 Anniversary update in my Pentium 4 machine, it even installed several updates (Which I didn't bother for). It ran really smooth, and wit…
  • @yourepicfailure said: If an argument against moving to Windows 10 involves appearance, then you must have been living under a rock. There are tweaks that exist such as aero glass, icon swappers, and more to make it more "fancy" just like with 8/…
  • Thanks! Yeah, that would be cool. So this recovery disk would be a Win98 SE install disk, plus the IBM drivers for the Aptiva? Something else that might be interesting includes dumps of recovery hard drive partitions in VHD format.
  • Windows 10 sucks! I'll put it in a list for the reasons why. 1.) flatter Metro UI instead of Vista/7 Windows Aero (personal, I know, but a more advanced UI is always better) 2.) start menu with useless live tiles 3.) bloated with useless Windows …
