  1. Very sad to hear this. I didn't use his software, but I always respected his knowledge and experience. Rest in peace, Rudolph.
  2. Doesn't Revolutions Pack do the same and much more? I also recall some other non-free solution Nice, but resource-eating and unstable.
  3. As for extensions for old Opera, I saw an advice to use web archive http://wayback.archive.org/web/20130429225644/https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/ I also saw and downloaded a huge archive with all the old extensions, but it's hard to find the file now. Maybe it's still on the web somewhere.
  4. I think, there were just theme files, which configured cursors, window colors, background desktop image, and sounds, and were applied just by double-clicking them. They were available for Windows with Active Desktop. And then you could also configure these settings separately via Control Panel. But that was long enough ago, so I'm not sure if this is correct.
  5. Agreed 100%, I also experienced very long SQL Server installation in 2010-2012 or somewhen then.
  6. As far as I know, it is possible (my friend did it), but it requires original Windows 95 only - no OSR! However the result was very slow and unstable...
  7. There is a project to "save" old addons: https://github.com/JustOff/ca-archive/ Currently they are only catalog of addons with links to AMO and webarchive, but they promise to run their own repositiry in future.
  8. I recall that there was an archive with all the Opera add-ons somewhere in the Internet. I have downloaded it JIC. But now I have to find it :)
  9. No, I liked interface of Vista/7. In fact, when I saw Vista, I understood that this is BEAUTIFUL!! And they had the best Start Menu ever. How could MS drop Aero and Start menu in 8 and 10?! That's when I was angry. Still using 7 at home. "2. RAM Patches still won't be free." :))) "5. Microsoft is going to care even less." Doubt it. Competition from Linux is growing, I think.
  10. As far, as I remember, only original Windows 95 without any OSR could run on 4 Mb RAM. I actually saw Windows 95 and some old version of MS Office on 486 with 4 Mb RAM, and it was sooooo slooooowww. My friend tried to install Windows 95 on 386 with 4 Mb RAM, and failed, but I don't remember reason. It seems to be absolutely impossible to run 95 on 2 Mb RAM. BTW, the record for XP was 18 Mb RAM (on some german website). With 16 Mb they were not able to load it.
  11. That's right, a year or so ago GOG started to "wrap" old games in order to run them on new systems. However, in some cases, I was able to install GOG game to new OS and "unwrap" the game and copy it for the old OS. There was simply a folder with the original old game inside. However, GOG games cannot be installed on Windows 98 directly already.
  12. Not sure about bundles, but you can find many old games on www.gog.com, mostly at decent price.
  13. MiKl, probably it's because this plugins folder contains a plugin that does not work on 9x and prevents Notepad++ from loading.
  14. jumper "OffByOne and Dillo are very fast because they don't/can't process most of the complex CSS-based layout. I recently downloaded the source for Dillo and am considering modding it to make a custom MSFN portal." There seems to be a more "recent" fork of Dillo for Windows called D+ Browser. I tried it. Actually, didn't notice the differences, but may be there was something useful updated.
