  1. Such a nasty disposition. Perhaps someone else may care.
  2. Well, even though I tried a few nice ones like "Aero Frost" and "Glow", I settled on just colourizing the title bars for some sort of windowed effect. It looks reasonably nice. I must say, while it's nice to have a Windows 10 LTSC installation I can somewhat enjoy using, I still prefer Windows 8. I just realized that when you remove components form Add/Remove Components, you CANNOT delete the payload in DISM - the way you can on Windows 8x. I'm going to try and get another year out of Windows 8 first, and then migrate to Windows 10, using this LTSV box then.
  3. Thanks I will check out Virtual Customs. It seems to be along the themes of sci-fi and anime, but I will look at the site with an open mind. Thanks so much
  4. Setting up a Windows 10 box on LTSC 2019. I have found a couple of Aero Windows 7-esque styles that apply. However, I was looking for more of them. My old mainstay, DeviantArt, doesn't seem to have the themes and visual styles that they once did. Is there still a place to find several visual styles that I can apply to Windows 10? I have all of the unsigned theme issues taken care of. I just can't find many themes.
  5. Wow! I'm stunned. I thought it had been awhile since we had heard from him. I have to agree with @Sampei.Nihiram in that we're hearing a lot of sad and stunning news lately. These announcements increasinly take the wind out of you. Above all, I appreciate dencorso's help over the years with tech questions. My condolences to those here who knew him best.
  6. No but before April, there were no available updates, and her system could NOT be upgraded past Build 1511. So she was effectively stuck there - well that is until her system DID update. There were no extra drivers to obtain when she maxed out at 1511.
  7. Now this is odd. Somewhere around April of this year, Windows 10 on her Dell XPS 8500 was able to upgrade to 21H2. I only learned because of an update that was alerted to her about the feature update to 22H2 being available. We updated it, and she's now currently updated. What ??? How did this system suddenly become "compatible" with Windows 10 past Build 1511?
  8. Other than a Ghacks article mentioning that Mozilla was not quite decided on its support plans for these OSs, I have not seen any other news on this (which I had hoped would be a bigger story). One theory seems to suggest that the current ESR 102 will be supported until June 2023 (when ESR 115 is released}, or until August 2023 when the last ESR 102 update drops. Has anyone heard any additional information?
  9. Sure it is speculative. But for pages and pages, it seemed to go off topic talking about gaming/video performance that seemed to affect a couple fringe users and not most of us. Any, I'll leave you to it, and also bail on the thread.
  10. Here Hear! This thread was supposed to be about the future of using release versions of Chrome and Chromium on Windows 7. Now it's gone to another place completely. Are there any equivalent threads on Firefox ESR and release versions? Their plans seem a tad up in the air right now.
  11. I wonder if submix8c will pop by again to gasp at the topic bump. As much as I rail against using XP on the Internet, I do use XP SP3 offline as a music server/PC. I just output the sound card to an FM transmitter and play music around the house via FM radios. Otherwise I have an old HP notebook left over at my girlfriend's place, and it runs 32-bit Vista SP2 (plus some Server 2008 updates). I browse with MyPal 68
  12. I'm now examining my post-Windows 8 options next year. LTSC 2019 seems to be the most rpomising one with support until the end of the decade. Now the question: How to get it?
