Re: PreLoad Portable Office

The main reason why preloaders are rare these days is that they're a trade-off. They slow down Windows startup in order to speed up application startup. See https://devblogs.microsoft.com/oldnewth ... 0/?p=36223

Re: Vivaldi (Opera [inspired] browser alternative)

Further good news: while manually updating my (so-called ' portable ') copy, I noticed that Uniextractor2 now recognizes the installer and easily unpacks it to a ' vivaldi.7z ' archive, which can then be further extracted to yield the relevant files for updating (as detailed above ), circumventing ...

- Assuming vevy wishes to reduct all his current entries, do we still want a live CLI site? Is there enough interest to make it viable?
IMO, without vevy's entries the CLI site would be so tiny that it wouldn't be very useful either and it would make the most sense to just pull the plug.

Re: Opinion Poll: CLI Database Filters and Future

But let's try situations with more results. For example "hash" will probably have dozens of results. Your example is pushing it... I'd start by excluding old/ discontinued tools, because I want good coverage of algorithms. Do you? Chances are that you'll either want something that uses an already p...

Or like Reddit search.
Umm, Reddit search is notoriously unreliable. It's a long-standing meme to make jokes about how terrible it is. Example.

Re: Opinion Poll: CLI Database Filters and Future

What I mean about filters : Something like this . The ability to filter (only show) tools with (for example) size below 5M, open-source license that allow you to convert csv or compress pdf, etc. The idea is to also be able to filter by any other criteria like release date, current/discontinued, po...

Winamp Skin Museum

There is a website that shows screenshots of tens of thousands of old Winamp skins. https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2020/10/08/the-winamp-skin-museum-really-whips-the-llamas-ass/ The skins are a remnant from an era where tons of people created skins according to their tastes.

Re: XP compatible software

More noting that the cat is out of the bag in terms of the code -- I just linked to engadget topically because they're (usually) good tech info. In that case, I disagree with your claim that the topic of open sourcing Windows "isn't relevant anymore" after the code leak. The code out there can't le...

Re: XP compatible software

Here's why that's not really relevant anymore: Windows XP source code leak sheds light on Microsoft's OS history - https://www.engadget.com/windows-xp-source-code-leak-170715593.html I don't follow how that's really relevant for anything. The biggest thing the article mentions is that Windows XP ha...

What is Procmon64a.exe supposed to do? If I try to run it in Windows 10 64-bit, then I get an error.
I think it's an ARM version for computers which have an ARM processor, such as Microsoft Surface Pro X.

Re: Rename System requirements to "OS support" (Edit: or "Supported OS")

I agree that line between OS and platform is getting a bit blurrier, but out-of-the-box cross-platform works because the underlying platform (e.g. Java) has been developed for multiple OSes and its integration with theses systems under the hood differs. Their point is to abstract the interaction be...
