Re: Unable to Update Windows 10

I don't dwell on this, but let's just say I wasn't much surprised when yet another high profile tech-savvy user tried to upgrade his Windows and came away with this conclusion at the end of a very acid report: I'm not asking for much. All I want is my Professional edition of Windows 10 to be left al...

Same here. For one and as I recall it, it marked the end of long nights spent with friends trying to install drivers and making trivial things like scanners work in Windows 3.x.

And then NT arrived... 8)

Re: Sazanami (Audio Editor)

Good post, loin2kolpotoru . But I had to edit it to point to a viewable program screenshot 'cause all I was seeing was a " I love CPC " graphic like the one below, only larger -- so maybe next time don't link directly to codecpack.co and upload the image to a free filehoster like I did... https://i....

Re: Removing Windows 95/98/ME?

I for one think those OS mentions have historical value so I'd leave them as they are -- but I find it would be alright to no longer include them in new entries, as a deprecation measure, I guess. E.g., I've been pondering setting up a Win98 VM for some old programs and games -- even making it amena...
