  • @Bry89 said: It's to be expected. Apple really don't want people running their OS on non-Apple hardware. It's not going to change. I wonder if the reason it's like this with VirtualBox and MacOS is because Apple prohibits it by law. And I…
  • @win32 said: I don't think he was referring to the physical size of the computer; instead he was referring to the amount of RAM (2 GB, at which the limitations of IA-32 don't really manifest themselves). XP x64 edition uses <250 MB idli…
  • @nick99nack said: @Windows 2000 said: Netbook: Intel Atom N470 1.83GHz 2GB RAM 217GB partition, 64GB partition Windows 7/XP x64 dual boot I am curious. What made you decide to use 64-bit on a syst…
  • Huh, cool. I like using the Wayback Machine for getting a look at what some websites looked like many years ago, and for checking out websites that may be offline as of this era. Though me myself doesn't always see a need to use a proxy like this on…
  • @nick99nack said: That's unbelievable. And this is why I don't use subscription products. They can be taken away at any time. Cloud-based applications are stupid. I guess that's true. But most people may need cloud-based applications for …
  • I'm sure you can still use older versions of Adobe Creative Cloud as a non-licensed software, I mean, that type of software use does exist, I'm sure. But I don't think a lot of people would have to worry about that too much, because with Adobe CC, y…
  • Actually, I was wrong, the service pack I have for Windows Powered is not SP1, it's SP4. I checked the About Dialog when I tested this OS in VirtualBox, and it said "SP4".
  • @DEJVOSS said: Thank you guys for answers. I will try to find it on internet. You know you don't have to use a pre-made VHD to install operating systems in hypervisors. You can just make your own VHD in your hypervisor and install the OS …
  • @SomeGuy said: We have a few VM images on winworld, but they are not very useful as almost ANY pre-installed imaged will be specific to the VM or emulator (Virtual PC, VirtualBOX, VMWare, QEMU, PCE, PCEm, and so on.) and configured to the particu…
  • @Sacred517 said: @JonathonWyble Any chance you could share the possibly-SP1 ISO? with me? I want to compare its behavior to that of the SP3 ISO I have. Despite lots of reports that the SP3 disk is the real deal, I've found evidence that Windows P…
  • Sometimes I do wonder why we don't have an upload system. Did something happen?
  • @RayanPlays12 said: Hello everyone! I'm new here, but would you mind to give me a Windows Whistler Beta 2 Build 2428 Product Key? DTWB2-VX8WY-FG8R3-X696T-66Y46 This key works for me, so it should work for you.
  • @jonirob said: It installs easily in VirtualBox with guest additions, if anyone's interested the product key is: RBDC9-VTRC8-D7972-J97JY-PRVMG Yes, that's the product key for the actual Windows Powered CD. I actually have that writ…
  • 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 …
  • @windowsfan said: @JonathonWyble said: Not criticizing or anything, but there's already a topic in this Site Issues forum that explains a little bit about the same issue as this one, https://forum.winworldpc.com/discussion/10898/how…
  • 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 …
