    I've been using Windows 2000 on-and-off for about 16 years (only third to that frivolous XP and 98) and I am very pleased to say that with the help of all those who have contributed to extending its capabilities, it has now reached the high-water mark of being one of the few OSes to remain usable for everyday tasks 20 years after release! A few of my workloads now require Vista/7, but most still do not challenge win2k much. No other OS offers such a degree of folder customization, nor the nice, big picture previews in the "My Pictures" template, neither do I get a task manager with CPU/RAM indicators in a blocky, futuristic font. And I've also got the old Windows flag combined with the post-modern Tahoma font. And enter the extended kernel, to run my browsers and some other newer applications. So, here's to another 20 years for Windows 2000!! scratch that, considering that Windows 2000 was the best operating system around at the start of the millennium, it shall be the best operating system around to end the millennium!!!

    The roytam 1 test Iceape-uxp is a hardened / crippled version of SeaMonkey sporting a modern and maintained UXP browser instead of SeaMonkeys default browser based on Firefox 52. Only very few add ons will work with iceape-uxp where those in the zip file below does for me: standalone_seamonkey@iceweasel.xpi – Allows to use SeaMonkey as a standalone e-mail client by opening links from Mail & Newsgroups in a an external web browser instead of SeaMonkey. seatab_x_2-0.3.3@iceweasel.xpi – Adds a close button to each browser and mail tab nicereader-1.4@iceweasel.xpi – A web page text only text reader uBlock0@raymondhill@iceweasel.xpi – Ublock ver. InternetProtection@360safe@iceweasel.xpi – Adds an extra layer of protection if using 360 Total Security AV password-backup-tool@iceweasel.xpi – Export and import your saved passwords Also included in the zip is a few search engines (google, duckduckgo etc) to be copied into the searchplugins folder Iceape-uxp plugins zip

    This seems to work best: https://github.com/tumagonx/xompie/ A wrapper that allows XP/2003 to run some newer NT6 stuff that BWC kernel for win2k can also run, I believe, like Blender 2.79b. There are a few others, like Dibya's ExtendedXP, One-Core-API, and BWC's Extend Kit for XP/2003 but they are buggy, not very advanced and/or contain non-redistributables.

    Frankly I just tend to simply RT-xxxx lately, since that's what we all will keep thinking and remembering anyway. Or how many people will be able to memorize completely different names, and additionally will remember which is based on which, if new names don't even remotely remind the origin? Let alone the rest of the world, completely clueless about such history. RoyFox/RoyMoon etc. is out, and I agree that feels a bit like too much ego. "RT" on the other hand feels rather factual, more like a symbol as a real name.

    New version of Adobe Flash Player has been released and that's a good time to update. Direct links to official distribution packages version with SHA-1 signatures (should work with Windows XP SP3/Windows XP x64 SP2) Internet Explorer ActiveX: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/ Mozilla Firefox NPAPI (also for Opera Presto/Google Chrome 44 and earlier): http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/ Google Chrome 45 through 49 PPAPI: http://fpdownload.adobe.com/get/flashplayer/pdc/

    You don't have to limit RAM to boot into DOS. rloew's RAM patch runs from DOS... Run 98 or ME SETUP; when the system asks to reboot the first time you want to stop it here and reboot to a DOS prompt rather than letting it continue to the second phase. Run the WININIT command to pack VMM32.VXD. Then run PATCHMEM. Then reboot as normal and let SETUP complete. Google GCDROM.SYS. Add to your bootable disk. For AHCI-only controllers you will need rloew's AHCICD package. Maybe possible, but IMO it's best to develop a more universal method as I've described above. Building your own customized installation CD (and method) would alleviate many of the annoyances of manual installation. I've never tried this myself, but IIRC, when Windows loads the USB driver stack it loses communication with itself (because the former "HDD" it was using as mapped by the BIOS disappears) and can't recover. This can be fixed by disabling the specific USB controller where the drive is attached in the Device Manager, but this requires trial and error with Safe Mode to find the right controller. The laptop BIOS may not properly handle bootable USB devices. Have you been able to boot with other USB drives? Different hardware can produce different results here. I've created flash drives that should have been bootable before but only worked on certain hardware, while others created differently worked everywhere.
