  1. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    Windows 7 has larger titlebar buttons, the taskbar (superbar) was especially redone for touchscreens and some other new touchscreen programs were added. I mean it wasn't drastically forced to everyone like they did in Windows 8, since the taskbar also had advantages for keyboard mouse users, but you could see what Microsoft wanted to achieve with future releases of Windows.
  2. Official - Windows 10 Worst Crap Ever!

    I'm amazed that Microsoft is still developing Metro Apps. Do people really use this crap? I mean just look at the Settings app, it's cluttered as hell and it's really frustating to use. Windows Phone is finally dead and people use Win32 apps on tablets. Windows Vista really is the last OS from Microsoft which had Desktop PC's in mind. I'm using Windows 10 right now, because.. i don't know.. and the only way to make it usable is to install StartIsBack (to have the Win7 start menu and taskbar) and Aero Glass for making Windows look normal again.
  3. Aero Glass for Win8.1+ 1.5.3

    Is CaptionHeight broken in AeroGlass for 1703? The button size just stays the same.
  4. Nvidia Pascal Graphics Card Issue

    Okay that's really weird. I'm also using the modified drivers (GTX 970) and everything is fine so far, except that it breaks direct2D font rendering in Pale Moon x64, but that's ok, i'm using the recommended x32 version anyway.
  5. Server 2008 Updates on Windows Vista

    Awesome! Now i can start creating monthly Vista isos that have the Server updates integrated.
  6. Nope, it says that it's not a valid Win32 application.
  7. Yeah i hope that the Server 2008 Security updates will work on Vista. I have a Server 2008 Standard key and i already used it as a Workstation, but some programs like Steam have problems with the builtin Web Browser which constantly shows the "..stopped working" error.
  8. Nvidia GTX 1060 inf modding for vista?

    Great, the drivers also work with the GTX 960. The last driver for vista is 365.19 which is so out of date, that some games even reject to start.
  9. Windows Vista SP1/SP2 UEFI

    UEFI works just fine, it just doesn't support the video card integration, so CSM still needs to be enabled.
  10. I've been a Windows Vista fan since day one and i never absolutely never had any problems with it. My first Vista PC was actually a laptop! It was a HP Pavilion dv6000 and it ran the OS just fine. Sure, RTM was kinda buggy but since SP2 it's just like Windows 7.. just better. Yes, i'm still using Windows Vista today, even though my current PC is meant for modern OS like Windows 8.1/10. Most of the modern games released in 2013-2015 run just fine on Vista but since Windows 7 got the DX11.1 update and game developers just started to use this instead, vista is no longer capable of running it. Which is sad because theoretically it could be possible to backport the DX libraries but since no one cares about it.. it might never happen. Now we have to find out (or maybe someone already found out) how to get server updates on vista (using Windows Update) since it's still suported until 2020. I already tried using the server version as a workstation which was fine for the most part but some programs like Steam and other game launchers have problems with the builtin web browser. web browsers are also a big problem on Vista because developers treat the OS like XP now.
  11. Vize 2.0 Release 1

    Yes it works just fine on SP2 (I know the last post is 3 years old) I'm still using Vista (Server 2008) and it's perfect.
  12. About AMD Drivers on Vista

    Hmm, but i'm using it as a second videocard though. I tried all official amd drivers but it still didn't work. The patch is x32 only :/
  13. About AMD Drivers on Vista

    I have the same problem with the AMD Radeon HD 7700. It has supported drivers for vista but after rebooting, the drivers are disabled and device manager says (Code 43) I'm using this as a second videocard though, so if it doesn't work at all, i don't mind going back to NVidia EDIT: OK, the drivers doesn't even work with Vista! It's minimum requirement is Windows 7.. But why does it say that it supports Vista on the site? It's so sad seeing Windows Vista dying like this, it was my fav OS since day one.
  14. No download links for Windows 8?

    I'm looking for a Windows 8 Pro x64 download link for weeks now.. I don't get it why Microsoft removed everything that had to do with Windows 8 (9200 of course) Do you know any working download links for Windows 8? I can't find anything :/ thanks.
  15. Intel HD graphics / B75 chipset drivers

    Thank you so much! I'll try it later on my Windows Server 2008 installation and hope it'll work Even though i'm using a PCI videocard, i need the iGPU for the 2nd monitor since it only has 1x DVI port. EDIT: Nope, doesn't work
