  1. You DID know you can turn Aero off and not use the sidebar right?

    Then you don't have anything to complain about that way.

    I am a BIG Vista hater and always have been but 90% of the "Crap" can be VERY easily turned off or disabled.

    yer i know

    still very blogged system but

    i dont care that much because i always use my older comp for music , browsing and starcraft

  2. lol the old junker is my favourite thing

    i love it

    its like a litte kid and hes favourite toy

    am not getting rid of it

    when i die am gonna get buried with it lol

    and i havent got windows 2000

    i was going to go get it off ebay by local pick up

  3. they upgrade so they can run newer software

    If that was the case, people would move on from older OS'es only when the support for them starts to disappear, and it's just not the case (just like they've started replacing XP now, despite it supporting all the new stuff still). People in general actually love the new features it brings (tons of them -- even for the average end-user e.g. cleartype or sleep that works), the eye candy, the stability, the newer faster more reliable hardware, the new things they can do with their computers (like watching HD content), there's about a billion different reasons for IT departments too (better GPO, better deployment stuff, etc). Yep, people are moving away from older OS'es because they found something genuinely better.

    if they were better then they would be beable to run on older hard ware and they would be faster then their predecessor so they are not better

    Yes, again because running on a grossly outdated POS computer with specs worse than those found in dumpsters is the only thing that matters. You should "upgrade" to MS-DOS 1.0 then.

    Since it's your only criteria, the only versions of any OS you're ever going to like are those older than what you're using now. You're certainly never going to upgrade to anything else.

    "upgrade to ms dos 1.0"

    dont be a smart a**

    just becasue i got a old computer dosent mean you gotta be a little dip s*** to me

    i got a vista laptop

    so dont tell me am never going to upgrade

    but i seen how the eye candy and slow downs and all the other crap of xp and vista can get really annoying

    and dont say its a s*** computer

    2 gb of ram

    1.5 centrino dual core

  4. gamehead200

    the hard ware was 256mb or 386mb of sd ram pc-133 i think

    cpu was 500mhz

    yer not powerful but above the system specs and their for should run just but that will never happan

    and why have xp when you can have 98 which is much faster and stable

    you dont seem to understan some people cant afford the ram and the hard drive space and then the posting fees

    and some people cant buy things because their dad wont let them lol

    and some people just cant be borthered with it

    also people that upgrade to win xp only do it so they can run their newer software and hard ware drivers and the eye candy

    if win 9x could do that then their still be a heap of people still running 9x

  5. Also marketshare-meassures has nothing whatsoever to do with the quality of the OS

    I disagree. It clearly shows that most people and businesses are dumping older OSes they clearly don't want of as they found something better to replace it. People are moving on for a reason.

    lol better i dont think so

    they upgrade so they can run newer software not becasue their better

    if they were better then they would be beable to run on older hard ware and they would be faster then their predecessor

    so they are not better

  6. CoffeeFiend win xp is a resource hog

    mabye its all right when stripped down

    i would have xp if it didit cost much lol

    can i get a computer of the side of the sreet (thrown away) and take the sticker with the cd key and use it ? and then borrow a freinds cd ???

  7. hey guys i want some thing like windows xp (so i can run xp only programs) but dont want some thing like a system resouce hog like windows xp

    so i thought windows 2000

    so am here to ask is windows 2000 like a hog like win xp on older computers ???? and will it run most windows xp programs and last is it still support by M$ or is it finshed now like 9x ?

    am gonna try ubuntu with wine soon hopfully that be good with my older computer but i heard that wont go so well with winxp only programs

    so am planing this ::: windows me on master C:

    Ubuntu on slave D:

    and windows 2000 on slave (any drive letter and D: will be partitioned

    sound goood ??

    also i wont ditch windows me as i like it nice and fast and i like to try a linux so why i gonna have so meny OS's

  8. ok one more thing

    i tryed installing it with kenelex with windows 98se compatibitly mode on

    its installs and every thing and then you restart and it just uses the old drivers

    and all the apps install but have probloms like :error when analizying file creative mixer will close now and stuff like that

    at first i made the sound card work by telling windows to install drivers from the cds folder and it install by it self

    but i want the apps to work

    i tryed deleting the files windows installed but when i tell it to remove in device manager it comes back next reboot and this may be why the drivers and apps wont install like they should and wont install right in kenalex so how can i delete the drivers and make sure they dont come back

    in creative labs diagnostics says it dectecs hard ware but says all drivers not installed

  9. well after talking with creative for a week

    they finnaly gave me the hole cd for the sound blaster 5.1 sb0680

    and then i go to set up and says this

    your version of windows operating system is not supported by this product . please

    upgrade to windows 98 second edition or later versions before resuming


    i got windows ME ver 4.90.3000

    would you guys know why its doing this ?

    thanks for your time

  10. what about system commander ?

    does that replace the drives mbr?

    well if theres not one like i want then , whats the best one ? and the safest one ?

    and one that will let me put ghost images back and it will still work fine

  11. hey guys

    whats the best dual boot porgram for dual booting windows me and ubuntu ?

    i want one of those ones that goes inside the OS not one of those ones that go into the MBR and when you format they will stay their

    i want one that dosent mess around to much with my computer and one so i can restore ghost images any time i feel like it or need to

    and i can reformat a drive and expect it to not boot up with the dual boot program

  12. ME is a modern Multimedia general purpose OS for a networked multimedia Home or a personal Laptop.

    Windows ME was definitely marketed and built for consumers/home users, not for business operations. Business & corporate users have steered clear of ME.

    smartie77, I also found out that WinME has an improved version of the Spider Solitaire game that included options of choosing difficulty settings, which was not found in the Plus!98 edition of Spider Solitaire. My HP Pavilion 7840 desktop PC came pre-installed with ME back in early 2001.

    btw, I may have plans to make an updated version of the unofficial ME SP this summer, if and only if the_guy (original creator of the ME SP) has no longer interest in making a new one. has anyone heard from the_guy lately?

    i dont think so

    hes probloy doing work or school or some thing

  13. am not sure its just this strange sound


    Are you performing a nude or partially nude strip show...?

    That might explain all the heavy breathing and strange sounds...

    lol no

    and yes i have tried it with different people

    yer am gussing the mic on the web cam is dead
