  1. After a quick test, it seems to actually be based on Chromium 65, rather than 72 unfortunately.
  2. Unfortunately, as of right now, the latest version of 360 Extreme Explorer downloaded on a Windows 7 machine and transfered to an XP one, does not seem to work in any way. I sincerely hope that a legacy build is on the way. Maybe it takes them a little longer to release new versions for Vista, XP, 2000? If not, then version 11.0.2216.0 (Based on Chromium 69) seems to be the last for XP x64 and probably Vista, XP x86 and 2000. EDIT: After a quick test, it seems like the final version is still in fact 11.0.2216.0 (tested on Windows 10 machine) so we may still be good to go. I do not know why the 7 setup did not work back when I did that test so my apologies for the false information.
  3. Thanks for the replies. About the SSD, it is just 128GB as there aren't gonna be any programs on this system really. If space is so scarce, as @alacran said, I could always add a secondary 2tb hdd, but I don't think that it would be initially necessary for my grandpa. Afterall, YouTube and Ebay don't take 80GBs so easily. I am more worried about Windows Update to be very honest. I might just stick a 240GB M2 SSD as it is just 20€ more. About the the CPU situation, I will try opting for a Ryzen 3 2200G, but only if the budget allows it of course, because this is as previously mentioned, a pretty tight budget system. About the motherboard, I have had some rough past with Asus mobos so I would really prefer to just get a Gigabyte or Asrock one over it.
  4. Hello everyone! As said in the title, I'm gonna be making a tight budget PC build for my grandpa and the parts which I have choosen as of now are: Athlon 200GE CPU with Radeon Vega 3 Graphics Gigabyte A320M-H Motherboard Kingston 2x4GB DDR4 2666MHz RAM Transcend 120GB M2 SSD Cougar 400W 80 Plus Bronze PSU The machine in question is going to be used mostly for YouTube, regular email checking, some office work, playing music and occasional 1080p/4K video playback and I was wondering whether the Athlon 200GE can handle all of those tasks smoothly paired with the M2 SSD, 8GBs of RAM and Windows 10 Home. Please note that this is my second PC build so I might have made some mistakes. The goal is to make a power efficient, quiet, fast, cheap and a long lasting PC. Any tips and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Have a great day and thanks for reading!
  5. The x64 beta seems to completely support XP x64, so there may be a slight possibility of a x86 build coming.
  6. The taskbar and the toolbox do really resemble Windows Longhorn, so I’d say it’s either some weird xp mod with some skin pack or it is just modded longhorn. After rechecking the post again when I am not so sleepy anymore, I can completely agree with @ED_Sln.
  7. Okay, I've decided that I'm going with team red with their Ryzen 5 3600 unless there are any known issues regarding the temperature and load of that the ryzen series on XP. If anyone can recommend me a few AM4 motherboards that are tested and compatible with this os and can still be found brand new, it would be really appreciated!
  8. I would personally prefer going to team red but I have a couple of concerns as first of all, I can't really find this motherboard new anymore and secondly, my processor of choice if I were to go team red would be the Ryzen 5 3600 which is quite a bit newer than the Ryzen 1700 used in this topic so I can't really be sure if it will work. That will be incredibly useful in the very near future, thank you.
  9. Hello everyone. As the title says, I am looking for a new and modern motherboard and processor that can run Windows XP. Should I go with team red or team blue (Intel or AMD)? The only problem is that money is a bit tight and I would appreciate if it is possible to invest less than 500 euros (around 600$) on both the motherboard and processor combined. If there are any confirmed working and stable processor and motherboard combos within that price range I would really appreciate it if someone lets me know. Thanks in advance.
  10. I know that it is not optimal, but it is soon to be our only way of using Skype. After a quick test, it seems to be working flawlessly and it doesn't take up that many resources either. (If you have enough RAM, that is)
  11. Skype web seems to work just fine on Chrome 360.
  12. If it came with Vista x64, I can pretty much guarantee that it will be compatible with Windows XP x64 or at least x86, considering that even most computers that came with Windows 7 are fully compatible with XP. Edit: After a quick check of your computer's specs, it does seem to be compatible with both XP x86 and x64, although you'd have to search for x64 drivers manually and not from Dell's site.
  13. And here's where you're wrong buddy. Windows 10 Home x64 seems to be working perfectly on VMware Workstation 10.0.3 if you set the virual machine to Windows 8.1 settings on the initial configuration when you create the virtual machine itself. Also, Windows 8.1 vmware tools seem to work great on Windows 10.
  14. Symantec Endpoint Protection which is quite a heavy antivirus doesn't seem to detect anything.
  15. I have been using Symantec Endpoint Protection since 2010. It has never let me down nor did it ever let even a single virus on my PC. It always caught everything. Version 12.1 RU6 MP10 is the last supported on Windows XP but the virus definitions for it will be updated at least until 2021. Check it out. It really is worth it.
  16. It seems to also be present in Windows XP x64 Professional.
  17. It automatically imported all of my Chrome data into 360 (or I manually imported it from one of the options in the settings, I do not remember) without asking me to create any accounts. Very interesting..
  18. I don't have an 360 Account and was never asked to create one.. When does it ask for it?
  19. Any news about this project? I have just found it and it seems really exciting! Especially the fact that you're even considering making an api wrapper for NT 3.51. An Windows version looking like 3.11 but actually running newer software.. That's amazing! I can't wait for some news and updates. Any success with getting Chrome to work on NT 4.0?
  20. It doesn't seem to work on Windows Vista. "The procedure entry point TryAcquireSRWLockExclusive could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll." followed by an "Chromium XP has stopped working". Perhaps @FranceBB could contact the developers of this Chrome 76 project because his project at least didn't give an error in Vista (only the "Chromium XP has stopped working" appeared). This way they could combine their ideas and solutions and maybe, just maybe get Chrome 76 up and running.
  21. It does seem to also work on Windows XP x64 SP2 with 360 Extreme Explorer, therefore it should work on all Windows XP editions.
  22. I've been using it on my Windows 7 laptop for the past two weeks and I've gotta say that I'm really impressed with it and I really like it. It seems to be in fact faster than many other browsers and it works very well for me.
  23. To be very honest, I've been using it for the last 1 week or so and it seems like it is in fact a lot faster and I am very impressed considering the fact that it is actually a chinese browser.
