  1. Thanks for the replies everyone. It's good to see there are people that do support this much hated operating system and the 9x line in general
  2. Apple's iPhone and Mac App Store restrictions are just as absurd as the Windows 10 Store's. Though Apple don't try to force the App Store as much as Windows 10 forces things on users or tries to.
  3. Um... I doubt the OP has the resources to work on more than one service pack style thing actively. It is a good idea though!
  4. It's fine, you didn't come across as rude much ^^ Anyway this can be closed.
  5. Walled garden = heavily restricted if that's what you're asking. (And I like MacOS/iOS too if that's also what you're implying)
  6. Hm, what are the reasons for not having one? ^^
  7. would like MSFN to have some sort of irc channel

  8. Does MSFN have an IRC channel? I'd like to easily talk about things, but there doesn't seem to be such a thing present as IRC or such. If you're looking for an IRC network to host on, I'd recommend Rizon since my server is impractical for serious stuff (it uses a free domain and self-signed cert for example). Thanks for any response!
  9. It's a shame the browser hasn't shown much development as of late, I heard about the HDD crash.
  10. What is your favourite Linux DE? Mine has to be Budgie. It's elegant and looks amazing, and functions well on my low end hardware with an Intel HD Graphics 6000 board. Solus is one good Linux distro tbh.
  11. My opinion too. Vista SP2 ran slightly better than 7 on my Dell XPS M1530 laptop which I owned until it broke down in December due to faulty GPU. Your third point can be applied to Windows 7 vs. Vista too and everyone loved that OS it seems, 7 didn't introduce too much different from Vista and I remember thinking when I first tried 7 "is this just Vista with a fat taskbar" back when I was 9 years old.

  13. Stuck on Installing Devices, 27 minutes remaining. Been hanging on that for about 10 minutes or so now. I've set the BIOS date to 14/12/2000 or something, ACPI is off and am using VMWare 12 PRO. Why this is happening? :/
  14. I've tried ME in a virtual machine and while I know that isn't the true experience as compared to running it on real hardware, is there a reason why so many people reported issues with it (like Vista) - was it buggy drivers or such thing like with Vista? As well as the fact it was superseded in under 500 days by XP's release, what made ME so bad, and why are there people out there that do praise it if it was considered to be unstable? I've noticed it running fine with 512 MB of RAM on a single-core CPU emulation in VMWare with the tools installed... What I can tell from it is that it is more or less like 98 SE with a few new features and MS-DOS real mode being hidden.
  15. Microsoft will probably release a new version some time, maybe they are doing a rebranding much like with what they do to their web services or are moving to a more cloud-based OS in the future like ChromeOS has, more than likely the latter given Windows 10 itself.
  16. While I don't mind Metro, I really hate how Microsoft is so pushy with Windows 10's Apps and such, as if they are trying to emulate Apple with their mobile OS and turn their desktop OS into a walled garden...
  17. Aw, thanks Nice avatar, by the way. ^^
  18. Reminds me of when MSN closed down back in 2013, because I was a heavy user of it back in the day (when I was like 6-7 years old XD). I suppose a lot of people's Internet nostalgia will be lost...
  19. That's the main issue: I like Aero, too. Plus the fact I use RetroArch, which while is not demanding it is probably need the device drivers. I'll look into the transformation stuff, @2008WindowsVista and thanks for the detailed reply ^^

  21. Awww, that's a shame. I don't really have the resources to buy older hardware given I'm 16... :/
  22. Hi, I have an Acer Aspire ES1-531 and would like to run Windows Vista on it, since I prefer it over 7 for some reasons. ^_^ I noticed that there aren't USB 3.0 drivers or Intel HD Graphics drivers for my machine, running Celeron N3050 (Braswell) however the Windows 7 drivers for them work perfectly fine with the system. Hoping some sort of tweaks can be done to the INFs to work with Vista ^^ Thanks for any help! --Amy
  23. Just thought I'd introduce myself first I'm Amy Scarlett, a 16 years old MtF from the UK. I'm hoping to get Vista working on my rather low-end Acer laptop from 2015 (which works like a charm with 7 and most drivers seem to be compatible with Vista too), hence why I joined, but I hope to stay around for longer! ^^ Hope to have fun :3
