  1. In Word 2016, how can I save documents to epub, mobi or wiki markup?
  2. I agree. I do like creating these threads from time to time.
  3. Why use Win 9x on new PCs in 2013?
  4. When its public domain, can I decompile it without risk of prosecution?
  5. Doesn't this require Microsoft to release the source code? Or has it ever been leaked?
  6. Any chance of an official re-release from Microsoft of Windows 98 with modern hardware support?
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. 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.

  11. 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.
  12. 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.

  14. The question really is "do many eyes make all bugs shallow?" - or why would closed source make bugs more identifiable? Does Linus' Law still stand or has it been undermined? "It just does, look at these statistics" isn't a good enough answer given the manipulability of selective statistics. It would be interesting to see if open-source OpenBSD suffers a comparable level of bugs?
  15. How do I make a 15x15 Excel spreadsheet?
