Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

Recommended Posts

I guess maybe because Win2k is to NT4 as Win98 is to Win95? And as such, I suppose there are people who prefer the lighter UI of 95/NT over the "webby" one in 98/ME/2k.

With some work, the UIs of 98, 2k and XP can be tweaked such that they're close approximations of the 95 UI, so you can have the UI, and still enjoy the benefits of running a more modern OS.

AFAIK, there is a way to entirely remove the "webby" part of the UI from Win2k/xp. There was a guide on the Internet. The UI (Explorer) would be exactly as on WinNT.

Win2k/me/98 uses internet explorer components for skinning. Windows xp doesn't do so rather it uses uxtheme and windows explorer.nt4.0 uses a bare minimum ui components depended on explorer.exe

There are people who still run Win2k. I do not know why one would want to run WinNT if running Win2k is possible.

I'm sure people have their reasons :)
NT only software (not that I know of any)? Maybe their hardware is extremely old and W2K is a bit too much. Maybe the drivers fundamentally written for NT 4.0 may not work on W2K.

Windows 8. They dropped the grouping in This PC and put everything under Devices and drives in 8.1.

I tend to do most things in Explorer with the mouse in the main section. I almost never touch ribbon and haven't used menus much on older versions neither. I figured I like the buttons New folder, Undo and Redo you can put on the window frame though. There are 3 other options there which access by other means. This feature comes with the ribbon.

Crap to think about.  Why can a 10 year old Dell laptop update to Insider 17040 Windows 10 Pro in about 3 1/2 hours and a Surface laptop that is a lot newer fails to update to 17040?  :cool:

I have an old hp-lapptop I run older w10 ver on (just swap hd-drives) The other day I put in a disk with 1607 on and right away it start to update to 1709 and I let it. After (took most part of the day) it was reedy (and wu had com to peas) Firefox felt it was it's time and did an upgrade to Quantum. BUT that did not go so well; the program did start (it show itself in start list) but nothing show in desk.... + all icons to the left on ff-icon show stuff related to FF until I killed FF... then they work as they suppose to do!img%5D
