Why would I need an old OS when there's DOSBox for everything else?

I've got an SE30 running OS 6 that I like but I haven't figured out what to do with it. it could be fun as a word processor with no distracting functions

Dosbox can emulate Win9x with good performance and 3D support now? No not really.

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."

Pretty much anything that's 3D accelerated will run on 10.

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.

Sometimes I like to turn off the visual style on windows 7. But I get a lot of tearing and visual glitches when doing this so I quickly turn it back on again. Any way to solve this?

You're not using any compositing when turning off hardware accel.

Win98/ME users: there is a neat software called KernelEX that lets you run a lot of Win2k/XP only programs on win9x, opera, firefox, speccy, smplayer and so on.
>>
>>52246015

>>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?
>>
>>52247313
A lightweight linux distro would be a better option. XP is insecure and outdated.

You might have some virus anon. Unless you're really exaggerating about Youtube I don't think that PC as old as it is would go slow just because of that.

No. That's Windows 7.

Windows is the world's number one target for malware, and XP is no longer updated. Neither of these are true for Linux.

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.
