  1. Sorry, but nowadays - CRTs take up more hydro, weigh more to move around, take up more desk real estate, and aren't as clear. It's OK to hasten the disappearance of the CRT. The flat screen provides so many more benefits and used ones cost next to nothing.

    Server 2012 Updates on Windows 8

    Also I want to see if an ARM version of Edge Browser will released for Windows RT 8.1. (I've never really got a clear answer to this, but where is the best place to post about Surface RT tablets and Windows RT questions?)
  3. Speaking of which, Studio Tax 2018 (also a Canuckistan tax package) works as well on Vista as well. (it does require .NET 4 though).

    Something of perverse activity ...

    @Mcinwwl I don't possess the "drive" to install off all of those floppies. First, I don't physically have a micro-floppy drive. Next, even if I did, I am so used to optical disc installations, that I couldn't stand the patience required to sit through floppy installations anymore.

    What is best Firefox version for Win-7?

    v56 is still Australis/XUL. There might be some XUL extensions that do not work in v56, but it is the old model. There is some WebExtension cqapability in v56.

    Microsoft Edge coming to Windows 7 and 8.1

    For those few of us that use a Windows RT Surface tablet, it would be actually nice to have Edge released on Windows RT 8.1. I really wish it was part of the rollout. It would make Windows RT immensely more useful. As it goes, it's a decent tablet for basic needs.

    I think @win32 gets the last .... "Word"

    Well @jaclaz, the best puns should incorporate a "facepalm" moment. So I'll happily take terrible.

    I'm not sure I possess "the drive" to do it! :p (thank you, thank you)

    Wow! Even OS/2 Warp 3 was installed from less floppies than that ....lol. I never installed Windows 95 or higher from floppies, just CD-ROMs
  11. Well I'm glad to be wrong then. I'm not running Vista any longer.
  12. Apparently the legacy Malwarebytes v3.5 doesn't update anymore on Vista. https://www.vistax64.com/threads/vista-no-longer-supported-by-some-security-software.304411/ (Added today at the bottom of the thread)

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

    I wouldn't react prematurely. In a couple days, this will blow over. It appears the parties are rectifying what they can. Don't let a nasty person chase you away.

    Plus isn't Matt just using SeaMonkey and altering it into a browser-only product? By the way, everyone knows I'm not stuck on the continued use of XP. BUT .... BUT .... as it stands, native Seamonkey can still run on XP, can't it? Now if Borealis can't, then isn't Matt doing the same thing to the Mozilla code that he accuses Roytam1 of doing to Borealis and Interlink? Here's the way I see it. Even if I shake my head at those still using XP, I'm not going to put up intentional road-blocks, just to make life miserable for those people. So Matty Boy, why not just let Roytam1 continue compiling these applications for XP and Vista compatibility? Forget about "following the agreement to the LETTER"; what about exercising the spirit of the license. Think about it - other than your arrogant and hostile attitude, they ACTUALLY LIKE your work, and want to use it. How much bigger of a compliment can you get?
