WIN3.1/95/98SE/ME/2K/XP ONLY THREAD
NO POST XPSP3 SHIT
does anyone else use classic operating systems regularly still ?
People like to claim that debian stable is ancient, so can I join?
Homeworld works on 10.
MOO2 works on 10.
Why would I need an old OS when there's DOSBox for everything else?
Classic Mac OS versions take screenshots the same way as OS X does today:
Cmd-Shift-3 = screen to file
Cmd-Shift-4 = portion of screen to file
Add Ctrl to the above to get clipboard instead.
Only difference is that Classic Mac OS saves screenshots to PICT files, which according Wikipedia "...consists essentially of serialized QuickDraw opcodes...and was designed to be as compact as possible while describing vector graphics."
Mine was still fully functional.
Didn't keep any screenshots, even though I was on it from 07 to 14.
10. When I picked up a 16GB machine for $150 I couldn't really stick with a 32 bit OS. I got 8.1 from someone with a MSDN and upgraded out of that shit the first chance I got.
>>52245850 here. It's quite useful but won't work with any recent versions of Opera or Firefox. I tried this with an Compaq Armada 110 (fuck chinkpads,compaq is more robust) running Windows ME w/KernelEX,and latest Firefox release bitched about needing XP SP2 or later. That was with KernelEX installed.
Eh seems like the perfect thread to post this.
Just got my hands on an old notebook(pic related). It tends to get really slow sometimes, mainly when browsing and stuff.
Would XP help with that? Would I notice any change/improvement in overall performance?.
I'm probably remembering wrong but I had an old celeron(2.0 GHZ I think) with 1 gb of RAM back in 2006-7 and while it wasn't perfect It didn't seem to have the problems this one has(as in slowing down just because I'm using youtube), no need to say that one had XP.
Also what would be the best browser for this?
What's wrong with SP3? My Pentium II laptop runs it fine. I might go back to 2000 since web browsing isn't really all that good on the modern Firefox. It actually works though unlike Chrome.
