  1. I saw that. Figured they just went for another month :)
  2. How about Lunar Moon (for New Moon 27x and 28x)? Has that been suggested already? Lunar contains "Luna" for XP. Just a thought. :)
  3. I really loved Windows 2000. I guess with the help of a Roytam1 browser, it can remain usable. KernelEx sure must help a lot, but it's hard to gauge how stable it has been with all of the sorted threads throughout the years. Well, I'm glad to see it's usable for you.
  4. @Dylan Cruz, My slipstream was only done with Vista updates up until February 2014. I cannot speak to slipstreaming Server 2008 updates into the Vista installation DVD. I was perfectly OK with manually installing updates post 2013. So I won't be of much help I'm afraid,
  5. Well whadda ya know? February updates for 2012 include an IE10 update (kb4537767). I thought updates past January were only for IE11? Interesting.
  6. Sigh .... no I'm not trying to get kudos of any kind, and my running Windows 8 was just for full disclosure that I personally had no fight in the game. So don't like my posts then. :(
  7. Oh I agree that Matt's co-operation with the crew here is tremendous. I just hate when people are disingenuous in any manner.
  8. Very interesting that Moonchild is perfectly OK with continued use of Pale Moon on Windows 7, which is now EOL, but they couldn't be steadfast enough of ridding of Windows XP support. Now, I'm fine with the mass-jettison of XP, but it's either one way or the other. Me thinks, since the Pale Moon crew runs Windows 7, well then that makes it OK, but since XP is just all the rest of you, well too bad. I'm over on Windows 8 anyway, and again I'm not an XP defender, but flip-flopping on an issue just bugs me. https://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=23681
  9. I meant the XP ones - that was a registry hack, yet there was a whole thread on it, since that made the end-user misrepresent what the OS was. Just sayin'
  10. @Tripredacus One thing. Is the topic that was "hidden" any different than POS Ready Updates for XP? That also bypassed the proper terms of agreement for XP, no?
  11. For the Interlink Mail and News Client, I tried Matt Tobin's "real" version for 64-bit Windows. Has anyone come across working themes for it? I'd like to "flatten" the look of tabs for Windows 8 when I use the calendar and mail together. Just curious.
  12. Well, since I was having some file/save dialog problems with Firefox ESR on Windows 8, I moved over to Pale Moon 28. I'll stay with it as long as the pages I use work fine. Chromium Edge would have been my next stop. After that - who knows.
  13. That's exactly the difference I meant. Thanks Vistapocalypse
  14. Now does this mean that the new MS Edge will only support Windows 7 for the same period of time?
  15. That hack was just in pre-release builds.
  16. I can't believe I'm going to say this, but I have a hard time believing that the user base remaining is that low.
  17. Well, if you're just using the desktop - and you're not planning to use the Metro apps or the touch environment at all, Windows 8 does provide some benefits over Windows 8.1 that are as follows: There are no known telemetry updates in Windows 8 that plague both Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 Windows 8 does not have any known CPU blocks (which affected update support). Then again, Windows 8 went out of support in January 2016, so any updates you get will be manually applied from Server 2012 anyway (you can get these from the Microsoft Catalog) No GWX Nags! So you have a Windows version that's fairly modern, and that Microsoft leaves pretty much alone. You can't run IE 11 (but that hardly matters). Windows Defender still protects the system with updated definitions.
  18. Well I'm not here to start an argument at all. So all I was saying is that it's terrific for XP users that they have some options. Let's leave it at that :)
  19. I have to concede that was quite a kind gesture. For all I say against you, I'm VERY impressed. Yet oddly enough, I'm more of the same mindset as you are towards continued XP use. Nonetheless, it was a very kind gesture you made towards this crew. Cheers and Merry Christmas!
  20. I checked the GitHub page. Where are you seeing this?
  21. I've installed the November Security-Only updates (including IE10). The December ones are downloaded but I'll install when I shut down the system next week. Only one more IE10 update after this month. I feel really poorly that IE11 blocked Windows 8 from accepting installation.
  22. What sites are you having difficulty with @UCyborg?
  23. The convenience rollup - gotcha. But that's not SP2. Fair enough. :)
  24. There's an SP2 for Windows 7? Do you mean Vista, by chance?
