    .NET Framework 4.7.2

    I'm just staying with .NET v4.5 until I need a application that requires anything higher.

    The best Browsers currently for Windows XP and Vista

    For Vista: New Moon and then Basilisk
  3. Checked this. I disable secure boot, so this won't affect me. :)
  4. Just what are the consequences of not installing the SSU?
  5. I never installed it. I even labelled it with Spectre. Nonetheless, I just finished backing up and unplugging my Vista box, so tomorrow - a new-ish PC with Windows 8
  6. I'd actually like to know that too. I'm starting a fresh Windows 8 installation tomorrow afternoon. :)
  7. Yet a lot of people on other boards (like Vista Forums and the Pale Moon Forum) seem weary of them. @roytam1 should clear the air with these guys, so that they'll embrace these options.

    My build of New Moon (temp. name) a.k.a. Pale Moon for XP

    Well @roytam1tomorrow I pull the plug on Vista, so I wish you guys all the luck in the world with updated ports of New Moon and Serpent. You've done some good work. But I will be making the Quantum leap as of Sunday. Cheers! :)

    Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    Except there will now be paid support offered for Windows 7 Enterprise customers until January 2023. So I wonder if you could use those updates on Windows 7 Professional?

    Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    Well on the PC I'm running now (my HP xw8200), I was going to install Windows 8.1 Pro x64 (this was back three years ago), but there was a CPU incompatibility with my Netburst Xeons. It's discussed in another thread. So I sourced Windows 8 x64 Pro, and it worked. So I stayed with it, and then I found out about all of the GWX stunts, added telemetry and CPU blocking that Microsoft started pulling with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, and said to myself, "Hmmmmmm, now that I have 2012 updates working on it, I'll stay with Windows 8, since the OS isn't affected by all of that nonesense" Besides, other than the improvement in metro apps or booting to the desktop (which Classic Shell does anyway), there was very little that changed in the "Explorer" (desktop) portion of the OS. So I decided to stick with it, and vowed that my next machine would use it too. Until I changed machines, I decided to go back to Vista back in March just to try out the updates from 2008. I just wanted to briefly flirt with it, but I'm ready to set up a machine that I can now use happily for the next five years.

    Netflix playback

    I guess my question is, does DRM work in New Moon and MyPal? I would think that if it doesn't work in Pale Moon, then it wouldn't work in New Moon either. Is this correct @roytam1?

    Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    Well had I been staying with Vista, I would have only installed updates for .NET v2 and v3, and for IE9. Even when I go to Windows 8, I'm only updating up to December 2017 for now. The updates have not been all that stable. :(
