  • One time I tried to install OS/2 Warp 4 in VirtualBox, and by the time I thought the installation was going to be successful, it just froze. You're right, OS/2 is quite complicated to install on anything. I guess IBM can learn a thing or two from it…
  • I've been making something that shows quite a bit of suggestions for the this "WinWorld classic" theme. These contain some features that may not already be included in WinWorld. Yes, I included the new WinWorld logo And along with …
  • @SomeGuy said: Ideally Calvin would weigh in on this, but I have not seen him around in ages. Does that mean that Calvin is probably going to get demoted as admin for inactivity? I hope not, because he's actually an important backbone of …

  • Say, SomeGuy what were you using to create that picture of Visi Word? Is that an actual piece of old hardware?
  • Huh, cool. But what made you decide to make an announcement about the Vintage Computer Federation and their festivals here on WinBoards?
  • @SomeGuy said: Did it still work after pointing it at the sun? That will damage many digital cameras. How so? I've pointed a digital camera at the sky near the sun a few times before, and it still works fine.
  • Neat! Now we just need to wait for Windows XP and its editions to stop being popular, because people have been enjoying it even years after its end of life, and it seems like it'll never end.
  • You know, if you want to offer something to WinWorld that can have a better chance of being accepted to the library, you can just buy a legal copy of software or OSes. In this case, eBay and Amazon are your friends
  • It should be noted that some Whistler builds have a hard time installing in hypervisors like VirtualBox and VMWare, but the solution is to install Whistler from a special copy of MS-DOS 6.22 with CD-ROM support and set the clock to the proper BIOS d…
  • @win32 said: Actually there are Windows 2000 and XP shirts in the related items. They're probably more common than legit Windows 7 licences these days. I actually believe you on that. Because one time I found a Windows 95 t-shirt on Goog…
  • That's not how that works. Terabytes, gigabytes, and megabytes don't come from files or other types of storage. They come from hard drives or solid state drives. Therefore, BetaArchive actually gets their terabytes from getting new hard drives. So I…
  • Off-topic comment: Don't you know that BetaArchive now has over 100TB in their repository? Yeah, it's true! BTW, many of BA's files on their FTP are safe, so you don't have to talk crap about BetaArchive, it's a good place to be, next to WinWorld…
  • @nick99nack said: Here's some more proof of Windows Powered: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Large-Microsoft-Windows-Powered-Pocket-PC-Team-T-Shirt-New-without-Tags/352608303030?hash=item521917b7b6:g:D6sAAOSwt0dcUxu0 It looks like it was …
  • @BlueSun said: Also, I think it's worth noting that the people that started this site were in the 12-16 age bracket. I remember Duff being the young kid for a while. So we attracted the younger crowd because we were the younger crowd. Ah …
  • @Bry89 said: I once saw someone who was a 9-year-old (and he even admitted of being that age too). In most other forums though, people are to be 13 or over in order to participate, mostly because of the COPPA thing. Also, I should confess …
  • @BlueSun said: I'm not sure if it's still in place, but there used to be a restriction because of COPPA that you had to be at least 13. But I don't think it was ever really enforced. If you could act like a mature adult, you were fine regardless …
  • @SomeGuy said: No, there is not any specific age restriction. One must simply act mature and try to get along with others. Sometimes even small children can be more mature than some adults. We don't ask for anyone's age, so we judge purely…
  • Nice find. But there's only one little problem with that file. It seems to be corrupted as File Explorer failed to mount the ISO image.
  • @BetaTester24 said: @JonathonWyble said: @BetaTester24 said: I wonder if Windows Whistler Build 2415 is available anywhere, I want to test this build because I want to see the Windows XP Start button with the old…
  • Well, it looks like my release has already been uploaded shortly after I made this offer, https://winworldpc.com/download/35d28b78-3e2c-11e9-8581-fa163e9022f0
  • @BetaTester24 said: I wonder if Windows Whistler Build 2415 is available anywhere, I want to test this build because I want to see the Windows XP Start button with the old Windows logo. 2415 is an unleaked build for Windows Whistler/XP. S…
  • That happens to me, too. I always get a "Guru Meditation" crash whenever I try to install Windows 2000 betas (NT 5.0) in VirtualBox. It also happens with Windows Neptune Build 5111. @win32 said: Guru meditations aren't a windows thing. Woul…
  • @SomeGuy said: No emulators were harmed during the making of this review. Why would you feel the need to say that? Emulators/hypervisors never get harmed because of emulating operating systems. That's actually how they work. When you run …
  • @leon1912 said: Where can I contact the administrator? In their profile, you will see a button that says "Message". That's where you can send members private messages.
  • Hey, if people are from another country (which I don't know if the OP actually is foreign, but maybe he could be, since he was speaking in Dutch) can speak their language if they can't help it. However, most of us forum members only speak English, s…
  • @Isaac Gabriel Samaniego said: Where's the English Version I did post a topic on WinBoards offering a copy I have of Works 5 English, but it hasn't been added to the library yet.
  • @win32 said: It looks like Encarta 98 and Office 97's bastardized lovechild in terms of interface. Kinda shows what they were going for with Neptune/Millennium as well. What does that have to do with MS Works? Anyway, I found this disk fo…

  • @SomeGuy said: It has an excellent built in spell checker and grammar checker. Give it a try. All office suites have good built-in spell/grammar checkers, so that's easy to believe.
