  1. Off the top of my mind I can think of Blender and Java which have yet to be added. Blender has vista listed on their system requirements, and Java support for Vista is ongoing (though it will probably end shortly after EOL). Unfortunately I won't be able to help much with testing since my only Vista machine is currently out of commission.
  2. I'm surprised that ClamWin hasn't been added to this list yet. I guess I'll be doing the burden then . The latest version is 0.99.1 http://www.clamwin.com/
  3. Also, I would like to know what other members think about Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Kit, and has anyone who uses the product, ever tripped it.
  4. Hello Noel, Thank you for linking your domains compiler, and sharing the lists you use. The lists I mainly use can be found in the Ublock Orgin Repository under Third Party Filters, Malware Domains. I also use lists from here as well http://iplists.firehol.org/ Proxy I use: http://www.squid-cache.org/ To those who do not want to maintain their own servers, or use the HOSTS as a blacklist, Ublock Orgin is a wonderful extension that not only blocks ads, but also blocks malware. Link to Ublock Orgin: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/seamonkey/addon/ublock-origin/?src=ss Popup Blocker I use: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/popup-blocker-ultimate/ SeaMonkey Addon Converter: http://addonconverter.fotokraina.com/
  5. Couldn't one, instead of using the hosts file as a blacklist, use a proxy like Squid to accomplish the same thing. Using a proxy would prevent system degradation that could be caused by inflating the hosts file, and speed up web browsing by freeing up bandwidth (Squid is a caching Proxy).
  6. TrueOS (formally PC-BSD) is a BSD OS based on FreeBSD (it essentially is Free BSD). TrueOS is currently trying to reinvent itself, and considering it is a Beta OS, there are bound to be issues. https://www.trueos.org/2016/09/01/pc-bsd-evolves-into-trueos/
  7. To give an update of the User share for XP and other OSes Here they are as of September of 2016. (at least according to netmarketshare ) While I find that these statistics should be taken with a pinch of salt, there are some points of interest. Netshare from August to September of 2016 Windows 10: decreased 22.99% to 22.53% Windows 8.1: decreased 7.92% to 7.83% Windows 8: decreased 1.82% to 1.78% Windows 7: increased 47.25% to 48.25% Windows XP: decreased 9.36% to 9.11% Windows 2000: decrease ~0.01% to ~0.01% (source) Windows NT: increase 0.12% to 0.23% [interestingly reached a yearly high of 0.73% of OS market share during May(16)]
  8. Regarding Firefox 52 it is currently categorized under the nightly builds, and one can download 52.0a1 from this site. https://nightly.mozilla.org/
  9. To think that you guys would predict Microsoft Edge is unbelievable
  10. A hack to rival the Apple ingenious Wave technology that was introduced in iOS 8 .
  11. After two days of windows 8.1, the infamous Win 10 upgrade prompt finally shows its ugly head. :ph34r:

      Dang! I guess I missed my "free upgrade". What a shame.:cool:

  12. Hello dencorso That is good news, and I will immediately implement the workaround on my XP laptop. The funny thing is that I specifically checked each page to see if a solution was posted, before I made my post. Somehow I didn't see the smiley train.
  13. Firefox has addressed this, and stated that their are no plans to incorporate this. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=541286 You can try to use the VLC Web Pluggin, however I did not have success with it. Possible fix in the distant future. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1057646
  14. Considering that one of the current requirements for packing Crayola crayons (at least locally) is the ability to competently use a windows 2000 and/or NT (4) computer, imo makes the XP obsolete question on a business level silly. (No I do not pack crayons fyi)
  15. Hello submix If this video is to be believed, it would certainly be possible. The wNIC appears to be the D-Link AirPlus G ® DWL-G510 images from manual https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http%3A%2F%2Fftp.dlink.ru%2Fpub%2FWireless%2FDWL-G510%2FDescription%2FDWLG510_MANUAL_100.pdf Personally however, I see no problem with "downgrading" to the use of WPA on 9x machines. People tend to over exaggerate the "insecurity" of WPA, probably due to the use of TKIP and the WPS exploit. AFAIK the only way to crack the passphrase is to use a brute force attack. A WPA secured network with a strong password and disabled WPS should be more than sufficient to keep out all, but the most determined hackers. Not broadcasting the SSID is also a good idea.
  16. If a driver uses the WDM framework, in theory the code should be Binary compatible, and have source code compatibility from Windows 98 up to Windows vista x86. Theory is not actuality though, and binary compatibly/source compatibility is not assured, due to WDM facilities that may only be present in newer versions of windows.
  17. If XP is obsolete (and it's not) I guess that makes my precious ME a relic.
  18. Hello schwups, long time no see. It seems I may of been a little late to the party then.
  19. Avast 4.8 is updating fine on my PC. (Windows ME unofficial service pack)
  20. Good to see some love for the pre 2k OSes of the NT line. Curious did you incorporate some of the back-ports bearwindows has on his site? http://bearwindows.zcm.com.au/wintips.htm
  21. Aye I'm gone for a year and come back to a new 9x (and NT 4 ) project. Going to test it out now on the ME system. EDIT: I like it. It's a quick little browser that holds some promise. Buggy accessing MSFN Forums however. EDIT2: You may also like to look at some of the sources here, you may find it useful. http://toastytech.com/files/95browsing.html
  22. Has anyone got any information on this error? "disk i/o error : status = 00008003" 

  23. Aura M4 or Doscore I came across this interesting OS today (somehow missing this reply god knows how long ago XD http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/171457-dos-based-oses/?p=1101211). It is a hybrid kernel os (Freedos 1.1 and the Aura GUI) whose goal is to give a modern gui feeling to good old dos. (I don't know why I put the horizontal lines ) Here is a link to the projects website http://doscore.net/doscore_2008-2015/dosc0re_-_Aura_M4_-_Blacksanta.html project description (from website): Welcome to the doscore home page. Here you will find resources and information about the FreeDOS based distribution and the Aura GUI built by Chase Finn and Chelson Aitcheson based on the Ozone GUI code. This software is freeware/open-source and is available on sourceforge. some parts of the code are not open-source but the base of the code is GPL derived from Ozone GUI. Ozone Our goal is to have a modern feeling Graphical user interface that utilizes internet applications, connectivity, file-sharing and dos server functions. Some 3rd Party applications are bundled (mostly freeware projects) and some other official FreeDOS tools to help you deal with daily tasks.
