WINDOWS /XP/ THREAD
98 AND 95 FAGS WELCOME
GET IN HERE
>GET IN HERE
well then, hello there
I tried using windows 98 a few months ago, after having not touched it for probably a decade.
The directory structure was very clean and simple. Not at all like these "modern" "multi-user" operating systems that shit random files in a thousand different places.
And unlike Windows 10, the UI is consistent.
>anon with shit tier anime tastes
I tried that too. The directory structure was way messier than 98.
Briefly using windows 98 made the desktop make sense to me for the first time in forever. It's presented as being the top level of the directory structure, with everything existing underneath it. Way more intuitive than multi-user systems that bury the desktop in the individual user directories.

Why would someone use XP for a computer on the internet?
I like XP and still use it on a couple computers, my home media box and the laptop dedicated to uC's, neither get connected to the internet.
I put a clean XP install on the wifes computer and within 30 days, it was slowed down to a crawl from, I'd imagine malware. She doesn't even use it much, and when she does it's mostly youtube.
Slapped a different drive in it and installed mint for her to try, and 30 days later she gave me the go ahead to wipe the XP drive.
Is it just nostalgia?
Well sort of, as that's the only reason to use a Pentium II. Good luck running Windows 7 on a Pentium II. Linux would do okay with a very lightweight DE.
That's with or without software rendering. Doesn't make a difference really, but Direct3D and OpenGL have a lot of artifacting.
>And unlike Windows 10, the UI is consistent.
Oh fuck you.
Windows 95 Plus! reporting for duty, whats the mission?
Sorry anon, all my oldenmedia is packed away, only game I could find needs more free space than there is on the HDD
> tfw 400MB HDD
I do actually have some AOL disks (CD's AND floppies) in with my stored media so future generations could enjoy the cancer, I should haul that box out from storage and turn this into a vintage game rig (used to run my amateur RTTY setup). Not that I trust this 17 year old HDD as far as I could throw it or anything,,
Try disabling Dynamic Lighting, Volumetric Lighting, ShinySurfaces and HighDetailActors in UnrealTournament.ini, also use 16-bit colour and low or medium quality textures.
The Rage Mobility you are using has better speed on Windows9X than on NT, 2000 or XP. Use the M series driver for best performance on a Pentium II.
