  1. Are you sure Lunascape doesn't have Trident 7? Lunascape appears to run on Vista.
  2. I'm trying to access Business Objects XI for my work on my Vista laptop. It says it requries Internet Explorer 11 but the last version that worked on Vista was Internet Explorer 9. Is there a workaround to get IE11 running on Vista? Or are there any other browsers using the Trident 7 layout engine that might support running Business Objects on a Vista machine? Lunascape, Avant, Maxthon or Sleipnir? Which would be best? I've heard Maxthon has funny ideas about user privacy.
  3. In Word 2016, how can I save documents to epub, mobi or wiki markup?
  4. I agree. I do like creating these threads from time to time.
  5. Why use Win 9x on new PCs in 2013?
  6. When its public domain, can I decompile it without risk of prosecution?
  7. Doesn't this require Microsoft to release the source code? Or has it ever been leaked?
  8. Any chance of an official re-release from Microsoft of Windows 98 with modern hardware support?
  9. Yeah, I'm mainly using it as a web browser with flash. I used Linux for a while - but recently set up WPA2 and various distros stopped connecting (could be the T41 internal wifi). Apart from that, I hate activation, bloat, real-time virus scanners and the upgrade cycle, I like Office 2K/OpenOffice (hate Office 2007 etc.) and it would be nice to play a few games from the 90s and I always found WINE and Dosbox a lot of hassle when games just black out. I like multi-user. I don't think I can be bothered with dual boot.
  10. I have quite a fondness for 98 and am reinstalling an old computer Thinkpad T41, but why should I use 98 over XP? I'm thinking of getting XP SP3. What are the advantages of 9x or 2000?
  11. Very interesting thread, might try disabling javascript. But if you want a operating system for pentium IV era that supports OOBE >512Mb RAM >2Ghz CPU >64Gb+ HDD Supports wifi etc. Installs to RAM Next to no virus attacks then check out Puppy Linux 2 or 3 series. I did a little table here.

  13. In my corporate environment, the newest thing we are rolling out is Windows 98SE and NT4 for servers. We find it much better for securing data than XP, Vista, 7 etc.
  14. The point about the vulnerability of open-source software to bugs is the same. Thats true, however it was sort of a red herring. As deliberate distractions go, I'd say the news of an 8 year-old bug discovered in the Linux kernel was more of a red herring to distract from Linus' Law.
