Besides a literal handful of apps that I regularly check for updates, there's basically nothing "new" to add, or improve upon my existing system. The state it's in right now, is probably the state it will stay, until it eventually is not Internet worthy anymore. And then after that, if for some reason USB 2.0 storage devices go the way of the floppy disk, there will be even less I'll be able to do with this rock. I doubt using CD-R discs would be a practical way of exchanging files/documents or conducting any sort of business.
So, until the last KernelEx browser is no longer safe, or until I can't use the USB 2.0 media, my computer is haning on by a thread. My computer is quickly approaching Windows 3.1 territory.
And if anybody cares, the apps I'm still following for Windows ME are: 7zip, New-View Graphics Viewer, Trout Audio Player, ClamWin, XMPlay, Imagine graphics viewer, and PhotoFiltre.
I've given up on IrfanView, FastStone, and XnView... at least on Windows ME... the previous versions seem to work faster, without all the useless bells and whistles.
Sorry, sort of rambing there...
Lastly, does anybody know if a document I type using AbiWord 2.4.6 (last version for Win9x) or Abiword 2.6.8 (KernelEx version), can it be opened by people using Microsoft Office. In case I need to send out resumes or some such thing. I'm in a predicament trying to find a word processor that at least can send nice looking documents, I'm not really worried about opening things though.
I've sent resumes out using RTF format, using either wordpad, Jarte, or Abiword, but the margins and stuff never seem to come out right when printed. So I won't continue to use RTF format because it's lousy. I think Win9x uses an obsolete RTF version which doesn't translate well to newer ones.
Anyways, all opinion are welcome from my fellow Win9x users.
Okay, have a nice day.
