  1. my surface tablet/laptop-ish thing is stuck on Windows Update every time I attempt to power it off it goes into hibernation mode. needless to say it is still sitting in my to fix pile
  2. is it really a hybrid if your still running Linux in a virtual machine?
  3. The other day I installed Windows 10 on my old gaming PC just to see and wow I forgotten how the W10 interface is! I have been using a tamed version of W8.1 for so long it was a shock to land on a Metro screen or in an "app". Also I think i'm getting old I have no interest in battling the beast know as Windows 10.
  4. is IE still supported under W7? It has been so long since I last used it & my system has not been updated since just before the Windows update experience (i think that is what it was called lol)
  5. I booted my W10 partition on my main PC today to be greeted with a Windows update screen. At that moment I immediately and instinctually pressed the reset button on my tower and booted back into my W8.1 partition. I think I am getting old lol!
  6. not sure if this will help with an upgrade license link product key to MS account.
  7. im getting hit by that light on Monday my terminal is getting the upgrade at work. I have "ghosted" my system just in case all goes wrong. It will all be fine I will assimilate with the borg and be as one.
  8. W10 bad, but everyone knew that lol. Still on my quest for classic Windows, it is not going well. I have a machine that runs with classic theme (oddly well) using rocket dock (explorer can't handle running the mod anything metro is useless) and a semi-functioning program called vfind (looks like mac/linux top menu), but I still have my hopes! (they are unreasonable I know, but I am still gonna try)Vfind is not working hopefully will find a workaround, however, I think I need to start from scratch on my vm.
  9. Found this today it most defiantly breaks the system, but it kinda brings back the classic theme Gunna play with it in a VM see if I can tweak some settings to make it work for a basic workstation, however, at the moment the taskbar dies anything remotely "metro" is unusable and most control panel items fail to load
  10. it is awful, but I wanted to get screenshots of the different elements of Windows 98 and attempt to recreate them in W10/8.1 make it feel more like home lol.
  11. my work around (not a very good one) installed Win XP in VM Ware Player and then installed Windows Virtual PC 2007 inside the XP VM with Windows 98 inside it is slow and clunky, but it works.
  12. for me it is Windows 98 SE it was my first windows experience and it supports most of the games I want to play (older ones of course from my childhood)
  13. dose the linux subsystem come in other flavors or is it just Ubuntu?
  14. my surface is still sitting on the shelf. one day ill get to it probably maybe. -helpdesk98
  15. "might be useful for school" was my first thought before reading the whole article. after reading the article my thoughts were "why?"
