  1. Still it's not the same. The POSReady 2009 hack simply made WU/MU deliver the updates, which otherwise were also available (and remain so) from the MS Update Catalog. Those in ESU won't be available unless by explicit unabashed deceit.
  2. It's different. For the Windows Embedded POSReady 7 updates, one has to get them from the MS Update Catalog (they don't come through MU/WU) but they just work, as in the case of Server 2008 updates for Vista. The other involves actively faking a permit, which is against our rules.
  3. MSFN est um forum internacionel, où on post exclusivement en Anglais. Ça n'est pas optionel. Est-ce que vous deux avez lu les Règles?
  4. Peach Moonshine, for Pale Moon 28 (and 27), is a serious sugestion, it has the same initials as Pale Moon, and is less insipid than most sugestions put forward here, up to now. Moreover, I've provided both the about-background.png and a multiresolution icon for that as a start point.
  5. This is just a mockup... there's no about-wordmark.svg in New Moon... so where is it the brand name ought to go? And... how do I remove the whitened box that crosses the image? peach moonshine.zip
  6. My personal estimates, just to put numbers to things, and using MS own number of 10 users (= 900 million, obtained by telemetry) as a starting point, we should have some 450 million 7 users and (by reading the slope of my regression line above) some 5 million (but maybe twice that, thanks to intense version spoofing) XP users today. Refs.: Netmarketshare, https://www.askwoody.com/2020/win10-market-share-up-a-bit-win7-down-a-smidgen-and-the-browsers-havent-changed-much-at-all/ and https://www.zdnet.com/article/windows-10-versus-windows-7-whose-numbers-do-you-trust/, FTW. One must remember that market share numbers are terribly noisy, undersampled and distorted by spoofing, so it's much easier to mesure the ratio of 10 to 7 users (the two desktop leaders) than the absolute percentage of XP users, because the latter is about the same size (if not smaller) than the average random noise associated with the available measurements (and, hence, it's no wonder at all that the 3 sources reported by Ed Bott mostly agree on the former but not the latter).

  8. If you're a true supermegaueberultraparanoid person, get yourself a full-body Velostat gimp-suit, 'cause just a cap is not enough. Else, a good hardware firewall, MBAM 3.0 premium and a PEBCAK trap ought to suffice (and if not, just redeploy the latest backup) for you to hang loose.
  9. By the same token, roytam1's Palemoon might perhaps be branded OnMoonshine&Mooning.

  11. So, try "Felix" (= the one who has good luck), instead of Draconis!
  12. Me, too (while logged in)! I've pinged xper about it, already.
  13. I fully agree with @TechnoRelic. And, in case @Mathwiz agrees to orchestrate the process, I think we should cut short the discussion and suggestions stage, agree to a reasonable set of brand-names as fast as possible and get to work on them. There's a saying in my country that goes somewhat like this: "While the sage ponder in a haze... the clueless attack by surprise!!!"... and I do think it applies here quite perfectly.
