  1. No, I liked interface of Vista/7. In fact, when I saw Vista, I understood that this is BEAUTIFUL!! And they had the best Start Menu ever. How could MS drop Aero and Start menu in 8 and 10?! That's when I was angry. Still using 7 at home. "2. RAM Patches still won't be free." :))) "5. Microsoft is going to care even less." Doubt it. Competition from Linux is growing, I think.
  2. Really weird problem on windows 95

    As far, as I remember, only original Windows 95 without any OSR could run on 4 Mb RAM. I actually saw Windows 95 and some old version of MS Office on 486 with 4 Mb RAM, and it was sooooo slooooowww. My friend tried to install Windows 95 on 386 with 4 Mb RAM, and failed, but I don't remember reason. It seems to be absolutely impossible to run 95 on 2 Mb RAM. BTW, the record for XP was 18 Mb RAM (on some german website). With 16 Mb they were not able to load it.
  3. That's right, a year or so ago GOG started to "wrap" old games in order to run them on new systems. However, in some cases, I was able to install GOG game to new OS and "unwrap" the game and copy it for the old OS. There was simply a folder with the original old game inside. However, GOG games cannot be installed on Windows 98 directly already.
  4. Not sure about bundles, but you can find many old games on www.gog.com, mostly at decent price.
  5. MiKl, probably it's because this plugins folder contains a plugin that does not work on 9x and prevents Notepad++ from loading.
  6. jumper "OffByOne and Dillo are very fast because they don't/can't process most of the complex CSS-based layout. I recently downloaded the source for Dillo and am considering modding it to make a custom MSFN portal." There seems to be a more "recent" fork of Dillo for Windows called D+ Browser. I tried it. Actually, didn't notice the differences, but may be there was something useful updated.
  7. Help Spec me a system.

    "CPU doesn't matter, any x86-64 CPU works with 98SE, go for the best. " BTW, I wonder about Intel Atom...
  8. You are not telling your processor, please tell us more about your hardware configuration. "NV8269" If you have an older NVidia card, maybe you'll have better performance with older driver. With My GeForce2 I had much better performance with some 45~.xx driver version (don't remamber exact one). As for video playing performance, on one of the forums I saw the following advice about best players for weak PCs on Win98, and this advice is based on significant amount of testing of many players and their versions on 400 MHz CPU. AVI - Gom player 2.1.16.4635 DVD - WinDVD 4.0.B11.457C01 with DVD codecs from WinDVD 7 (non free, not sure if obtainable legally) FLV, MP4 - MPlayer (some custom build from 16-07-2009)
  9. Help Spec me a system.

    For USB, http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/43605-maximus-decim-native-usb-drivers/ is probably the best solution.
  10. Best operating system choice for a 32mb laptop?

    Recently I have run my very first computer - Pentium 133 with 16 Mb RAM. In its times it has Windows 95 installed, and it was OK at that time. Now it has Windows 98 installed. It works, but things are slow, and multitasking is bad. However it's usable.
  11. Best Laptops That Runs Windows 98

    I'd say 256 Mb is not enough (now). I was running a PC with Windows 98 and 256 Mb of RAM for several years (about 2008 - 2012) with lots of experiments and trying to run as much stuff on it as possible. And 256 Mb was not enough for later CASUAL games, which could be run on Windows 98 with Kernel Ex. Not big DVD games, but even smaller casual games. For example, Plants and Zombies hardly run on this PC, and I was not able to see the game's music video. Mainly it was because of amount of RAM, not processor. (Still I was able to complete the game ) For some time I didn't want to buy an additional 256 Mb stick because I didn't want to invest even a small sum of money in that old PC. In 2012 I bought a not used stick for around 12$, and just after a month the PC stopped working completely (it seems, because of HDD controllers on the maindoard). I don't know whether this is because of the "new" stick or not, but now it does not work with or without the stick. The system was faster with some apps and games, but somewhat less stable for that month. Offtop - recently I saw a math puzzle game that requires 2 GB of RAM. Crazy.
  12. AHCI and Windows 9x

    I'm sorry - are you running a Program that will take five months to complete ON WINDOWS 98? Are you sure it can stay up that long?
  13. Skype 3.8.0.188 for Windows 98/ME

    Just my 2 cents: There are replies from Russian Windows 98 forum that this version works OK for them.
  14. Advice on how to update/upgrade Win98SE

    http://offbyone.com/offbyone/ 'nough said . jaclaz Also try D+ browser. Worked for me even on Pentium 133 with 16 Mb Ram with several tabs. Substantially more "decent" support for CSS (still no floats, but MSFN looks less ugly in it than in OffByOne). Even once posted here with it. However, a couple of years ago it started to crash on some modern websites. Download here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dplus-browser/
  15. Win98 on iPhone6

    I also read something similar about running Windows 9x on Nokia 5800 some years ago. However, I was able to run only Windows 3.11 on it. Probably it's because there were some conflicts with libraries installed with Open Transport Tycoon.
