  1. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    Went to Home Depot the other day, and I noticed they were using 10 on their check-out registers. What a *terrible* decision!! I guess it makes that other, more insulting meaning for "POS" more relevant.... c
  2. Vista betas use NTLDR?

    I found a reference that suggests build 4015 uses NTLDR. Over at BetaArchive I think. Maybe that info will help you find what you're looking for? c
  3. I don't do Facebook, and that is unlikely to change. Are there any other places I could use to test? c
  4. I just tried enabling this on my Latitude D630 running XP SP3 with POSReady updates, and everything looks good, except the test sites all say that H.264 is not supported (what?!) Why? Is there something I missed? I followed the instructions.... c
  5. Hi, Just wondering if anyone has accomplished this. It is Ivy Bridge-based, so it's iffy, but it should be possible? Anyway, when trying to boot from the setup CD, it freezes with a blue screen that states that the BIOS isn't ACPI-compatible, and to override and proceed without ACPI support. Problem is, there doesn't seem to be such an option for XP x64. I could run the 32-bit version, but I'd be stuck with 4 GB of RAM (my MacBook has 16). And why XP, you may ask. Why not 7 or 8.1? Well, I like XP! And it does 90% of what I want to do with a computer, so I'm happy with it. Thoughts? c
  6. Hang on Shutdown

    That's excellent! Upon occasion, macOS X (yes, even Macs can crash!) will do something similar, where it will hang at a solid blue screen with nothing but a cursor in the top left corner. No amount of clicking and typing will do anything. Going off this, I think I'll call it "The Aqua Screen of Despair." That has a nice ring to it, don't you think? c
  7. 48-bit LBA on Win2k setup

    Interesting! Is your patch available publicly? c
  8. I assume that since XP, 2k and 2k3 share a common codebase (NT 5.x), whatever applies to one, should apply to the others, and thus it doesn't really matter which forum it gets posted in, since it's equally relevant to everything NT 5-based. That's my understanding, anyway. c
  9. KernelEx for Win2000

    I'm not sure I can reproduce it, but bookmarks simply wouldn't work. I think it was with 2.8d. c
  10. KernelEx for Win2000

    Not sure about KernekEx, but using BWC's Extended Core, I can run the latest Firefox ESR on 2000 perfectly. At one point (with an older version of Extended Core), bookmarking didn't work, but that seems to have been fixed in the most recent update (I'll have to test more thoroughly, but the stock bookmarks do show up now, and they didn't before, sooo...) c
  11. Windows 10 - Deeper Impressions

    Why am I not surprised? Windows 10 is okay, if I disable virtually anything, but I like every other version better, particularly XP and 7. Even Windows 8 (not 8.1) is better! In stock form!! When that happens, you KNOW something's wrong, because 8 was pretty bad. Out of fairness though, 8.0 did improve over time, eventually evolving into the much better 8.1, but still.... c
  12. It's not XP, but K-Melon 76 Pro happens to work very well in Windows 2000 with Extended Core. I'm using it to type this post, in fact c
  13. Native 64-Bit software List

    No I mean I have the 32-bit version of "real" Firefox working. I could try the 64-bit version of "real" Firefox, but we'd probably run into the same problems as with Waterfox. I could try compatibility mode, but since there's no entry for Windows Vista x64 (which is understandable, since XP x64 predates it by at least two years), I'm not sure it'd work. c
  14. Firefox 50.1.0 x64?

    This is good information! Perhaps I'll give this a try when I get some time. Firefox is open source, yes? I wonder what would happen if somebody took the source code for the 64-bit version and compiled it with the XP compatibility flag set. Would it just work with few/no changes to the code, or explode spectacularly with a million errors? c
