Just to update you guys on the progress.

 

Whenever I find out about an issue that would make me feel bad and had to fix it immediately if it was public, I must fix it before the release.

Currently fixing an important issue with cleaning hotfixes from sxs.

This paused the final todo list execution, but I'll be back on track soon.

 

24th of August was last announced deadline, of course that won't be met, buy as I said in this topic before, maybe for a week. I don't see as many delays as you guys speak of, but it may be the general feeling as I was away before this.

Good thing I was keeping it relatively quiet over the year(s), or you would freak out waiting :)

Gonna release unattended and tweak page with less content than planned, so we can continue developing it together (those are free anyway).

I can live with less content, but not with buggy content.
So after existing functionality passes my tests, beta will be released, just a guess would be ~2 weeks.

Well, I guess you are actually asking for it : :w00t::ph34r:

what about giving a beta-bugged to jaclaz ?

he has a big experience in windows , may be even bigger than you can imagine

Well  it is not very nice of you to suggest that I receive a beta-bugged version :(.

But more seriously (but not much), I am really not :no: the right kind of guy for testing something aimed to Vista (that I never used) or Windows 7 (that I very rarely use) and to Windows 8 (that I only manage to NOT touch :w00t: with my ex-Vista sticks ;)):

i was not saying to make a buggy version for you....

i mean a current beta nuhi is working on .

you read so much "windows" forum and topics , that you should be quickly helpful with a solution nearly coming from nowhere for usual people , like MDGX or wimb [that i know well from reboot.pro or 911cd.net [ where you both do moderation ]]  wimb should be the right guy to help nuhi if you have to much to do  ;)  :thumbup  :yes:

 

@nuhi : this wimb dude http://www.msfn.org/board/user/132150-wimb/ is tough guy when it comes to shrink windows 7-8 . 

http://www.911cd.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=23553

 

what i mean with guys i advise , is that they faced some bug you should be having especially with this winxs folder that kills .

Well, if this is going to be a "preventive bug fixing thread" where mentalists foresee the bugs that will be in the tool when it will be released and suggest in advance to nuhi what he should change to fix them before they happen it will become much more fun, but I doubt that I might be of much support, I am still having a lot of troubles with my crystall ball being out of tune and as anyone knows I really suck at tarots and I-ching :ph34r:.

 

On the other hand if - without having any idea of what nuhi has included in his tool - the thread is going to be a feature suggestion one, there is the risk that it might become counter productive, offering to nuhi good excuses to delay the release :w00t::ph34r: because he likes a suggested feature that he didn't thought about earlier and he absolutely wants to include it in the release ;).

 

My idea is to just keep everyone entertained with this thread (using some smoke and mirrors when needed) so that the wait will seem shorter, while allowing nuhi to work to the last details.

 

And now, hard-hardlinking and installing Windows 7 on FAT32 :

sixcentgeorge,

 

Not sure why you're recommending that MDGx dude... as far as I can tell he hasn't posted in the forums for over 3 years, And as for his site, it seems mostly related to Windows XP/98 and older versions of Windows. Not much there at all about Windows 7 or 8, as far as I can tell. His site was definitely useful when those OSes were relevant... I've known of him since before he called himself MDGx... he used to call himself axcel216 or something like that, long ago.

 

Anyway, I've always wished he would come out with a batch file to delete all the unnecessary clutter from Windows 7, the way he did for 98/Me. Long ago I used to utilize his tips, tricks, and tools to combine the best elements of Win98 SE/Windows Me, and then clean the whole thing up with his deletion batch files...

 

...ahh those were the days, when you could get an entire OS to less than 200MB fully installed and operational... and the system would be screamingly fast & stable. Only 14 or so processes running after boot... it was paradise!

 

Since that time Windows has become so bloated and slow... XP (my absolute favorite OS) was the last OS to fit on a 650MB CD by default.  Imagine using a slimmed and optimized Win98/Me combo (or XP) on modern hardware {if it could do everything Windows 7 can do, and play DirectX 11 games)... I'd be in heaven with such a setup. If I could run my favorite 64-bit apps (Adobe stuff, mainly) and DX11 on a a slimmed 64-bit XP, I'd do it in a heartbeat. But I've spent $500+ on a DX11 graphics card, so I want to be able to play my games with the latest DirectX. Sadly, DX11 can't be made to work with XP (as far as I know). I know I could play DX11 games in DX9 mode, but that would render my DX11 card investment sort of pointless.

 

That's why I can't wait for nuhi's new tool... I've been slimming and stripping down OSes since the Windows 98 days. There have been a few tools for Windows 7+ but they're mostly clunky and quirky... We have NEEDED an elegant nLite-style tool for these OSes for YEARS, and we're finally getting one, very soon.

 

I can't wait to be able to strip Win7/8/+ down to bare bones and get rid of all that bloat...

 

Edit: I'm also DYING to find out about the new super-special amazing secret feature nuhi has referred to several times... nuhi, do we get to know what that special feature is, yet?

i "know" MDGX from same time as you , you remembered me the  axcel216 name he used ;'] good old time .

his website is updated last in july .

the main problem guys like him are having , [beside hard core users] , is that windows has badly evolved from open to closed os .

it started with win me and first patch to regain dos access , by now the bios is also in the "party" for some secure os...

i think M$ did the big mistake to create an os that is looking like the one from the apple more than win9x where some little team could make good software even memory managers like qemm or umbpci .

 

as M$ is always on its line : like with directx and its os....so the market is going into linux where "no one makes the rules" and every body can make his own os ;']

 

i use win7 x64 , linux mint x64 and steamos . when it comes to play css or l4d2 , linux mint or steamos , is far better and faster than windows , because it is lighter and also because "hidden security" does not exist [ hidden security is the os looking some files or registry key all time to "prevent deletion or edition" [ mostly keys related to serial numbers and kind of version of os...of M$...["8 ] ]

 

if you are quake 3 or 4-doom3 or valve games player , you should give a try to linux , that plays very well and gfx card are at their best 

with windows , the best i get , is when i use a vhd and load it in ram with grub4dos , so i can not wait to use next release from nuhi even more than yesterday because now i know there is a "super-special amazing secret feature"

Last time I measured it, roughly, 37.42% better. :yes:

Expressed in cubic kilometer/foot-candle that would be more or less a  2*(2*pi1/2)2 increase. :whistle:

it is not really faster than a hard-drive windows when all is loaded , but it is faster to load apps and nothing can be faster except having os in cache level 2 or 1 of cpu ;'] , it is also more stable because all is in ram so there are no trouble with hard-drive having to spin up and then read....that can make time-out and crash

long ago i made some css and l4d servers with linux looking like vhd that i loaded in ram : http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-1334971.html

i stopped because valve updated too much times , recently i tested l4d2 linux with new campaigns that caused crashes at same places ...but valve has still not made update...

with css , having the server at home , the server was nearly having played a whole round before online players came , of course at that time no one was having ssd ..
