I don't run steam, there is a steam-free version.
Deleted Edition is a registered trademark of Monohouse©.
Deleted Edition is based on a new del *.* technology originally developed by bold_fortune® and now adopted with new improvements by Monohouse©, all deletion rights granted.
the del *.* technology is enhanced with new del *.dll and del drivers\*.sys as well as del C:\windows\*.* also implemented are the famous and well-known multi deltree -y systems integrated into Deleted Edition.
the core of the Deleted Edition is made of .BAT and has so far 12 subsystems.
we at Monohouse© are working on developing further the 11th and 12th subsystems in the near future.
the performance of the Deleted Edition is currently measured at 100 MB minimum.
the Deleted Edition makes use of nLite Deletion Technology, thanks to which the Deleted Edition was able to boost it's performance by over 700 files and no less than 400 megabytes.
we at Monohouse© believe that the Deleted Edition will be able to boot from a 1.44Mb floppy into 640K RAM by the time the development is complete, however at it's current early stage of development it only manages to load (with full hardware support) into 22 MB of ram, the kernel architecture of Deleted Edition allows us to delete WHILE the system is running, in addition Deleted Edition allows to terminate ANY process, thanks to the newly developed 9-kill death system, which includes die-in-sleep and die-from-kernel algorithms amoung others.
the new architecture will allow loading the system with NO services thanks to the PsKill-critical-processes-At-Boot technology copyright Sysinternals®.
the sound system of Deleted Edition allows using Kernel-Streaming and ASIO (Steinberg©) audio output without loading (and therefore avoiding software-level mixing completely) kmixer.sys Kernel-Mixer component.
the video system of the Deleted Edition has full 2D acceleration support, 3D acceleration under DirectX 8 nvidia video cards (up to Ti 4600) is supported for OpenGL 1.4.1 and DirectX 9 each with a 4-6 fps boost (at present state drivers have to be switched to make full use of the extra peformance) the new DirectX® (copyright microsoft corporation, please-don't-sue-me-I-Said-it) implementation allows to see the people in Need For Speed Underground (copyright electronic arts) even without DirectX 9 hardware support, as well as reflections in half flife 2, even without hardware-level DirectX 9 support, thanks to Nvidia®'s early-Z-occlusion-culling-used-to-be-now-removed, and the newly developed only-driver-no-crap driver technology, also the new DirectX system enables software and games use a personal-based file-set for every program, no more global directx drivers, no directx drivers installations, each program is designed for a particular directx driver, that is why every program will have it's own directx driver located in it's own directory, different games will load different directx drivers.
the storage management system has been enhanced by using Sync technology from Sysinternals®.
the new software deployment system known as never-install-anything, will allow you to run one file which will modify all registry settings related to all your already-installed(or not) software without running endless numbers of installation thus avoiding massive thrashing and damage to the system, as well as increases hard drive life while you are at it.
the backup system in the Deleted Edition, has been made simpler than ever before, it never backs anything up. which allows you to choose what to back up how to back and whether or not to back up in the first place.
the new counter-anti-make-directory-or-file allows to prevent any creation of directories or files without the user's approval, thus saving possibly infinite amount of hard drive space and eliminates redundancy for as long as the file is a directory and the directory is a file (currently all important directories/files are fully supported).
the services system has been enhanced to provide maximum readability and driver management, the "devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1" technology has been set to full gear, Device Manager now runs from a batch file which does the following :
1. sets this environment variable before it's launch
2. deleted the inf file in the windows directory
3. creates an empty inf directory in the windows directory
4. launched devmgmt.msc
5. deletes the inf directory using deltree -y technology
6. creates an empty file in it's place
services.msc now contains ONLY real and useable services.
the memory wastage is over, the explorer.exe problem has been deleted, the new Deleted Edition uses BBLean (Blackbox) shell interface, saving no less than 10 megabytes of memory, and possibly over 30-50 megabytes. adds speed to the window management with instant loading windows and high-quiality true 32-bit (the last 8 ones are alpha and transparancy is supported) colors, as well as unlimited numebr of visual styles and effects without compromising any efficiency.
file management is being worked on, however at present the current heading is a dual-pane fully-NC-compliant file manager with multi-threaded operations with unlimited operations concurrently.
just don't run a multi-operation on the same physical devices...
the internet system known as always-the-same-firefox allows to keep the same profile with the same history and the same plugins after an unlimited number of reinstallation of the system, Deleted Edition was designed to be highly modular to allow you to delete it at any time, knowing that all your important data is saved somewhere else, the system drive C: does not contain any programs, and all profile settings are saved on other drives, allowing maximum flexibility.
the routing technology, known as give-me-my-ports-ffs, completely removes and totally disables ICS, allowing for the right peple to do the right thing (NAT32) (this is not included in the Deleted Edition, it is only a recommended software alternative).
using RefreshLock® (copyright Gregory Maynard) we were able to take back our khz, no more flickering of the monitor, no more wrong refresh rate, ALWAYS the same and ALWAYS the fastest.
the basic network analysis system, ping, has now been significantly improved, hping2 allows for 100% control over all possible basic network analysis possibilities.
Nero-burned-in-rome, the highly-effective-unlimited options CDRTFE (Cdrtools fontend) allows for maximum customization of the ISO and UDF filesystems and now new : WITHOUT cygwin.dll emulation layers, and full DVD/R/W/DL/-/+ writing support.
the archive management system, command-my-line has an integrated compression and decompression systems inside the file manager, allowing archive management with no need to run other external GUI's, it's all in there.
paranoids-are-us, WxChecksums' high-quality md5 verification allows for maximum assurance of data integrity, while simultaneously providing maximum Linux compatibility.
agp-dont-be-late, PCI latency tool, gives YOU what should have been there in the first place : the ability to decide how much time your processor is going to spend with the video card.
watch-a-got, a combination of 2 diet-versioned video players : vlc and mplayer-mingw-win32-x86/athlon/p4/p3, support ALL known video formats WITHOUT the need for ANY codec installations.
programmer's notepad is the new way of editing files, supports over 50 programming language syntaxes with highlighting.
kdiff3, compare files and find differences in binary as well as text files.
slowview, a view that is certainly not slow - a picture viewer that supports zooming without loss in quality.
foobar 0.8.3 : the best known windows-based audio player, supports direct Kernel-Streaming, and extremely fast and small memory utilization (don't use newer versions than this, they are twice as big and twice as slow, the developer has changed, and the new one sucks), can play audio without audio drivers.
kx project, the #1 driver for emu10k1/emu10k2-based sound cards, this is the driver that should have been called "creative".
these are some of the features already currently available in the Deleted Edition, however Deleted Edition is still undergoing development and there may be a beta version available as soon as .bat subsystem #11 will be complete.
