  1. Nice! Any ETA you have for the next release, by the way? I noticed it downloads were removed for reasons related to the emergency patch. I really want to run XP on my Braswell Acer as an experiment, and yeah. Let's keep XP alive ^^
  2. Has anyone tested the One Core API found here: <link removed> And is it perhaps possible to install USB 3.0 Intel drivers and HD Graphics 6000 using it? I'd like the know mainly for experimental reasons on my Acer... I mean I could try it myself but I don't want to risk anything... :/ Thanks in advance
  3. Anyone know where to find KVirc's last Git revision that was using Qt 5.6? The current builds use 5.9. Preferably with an installer binary because I know the stable version on the website is very out of date (but still usable).
  4. Is there a list of what common programs will function under this modified kernel anywhere? ^^ I could try to compile a list of things if needed if I decide to boot up a VM - there's no way I'm doing testing on my real install. Feel free to give me things to test ^^
  5. I'll have a look for it @WinClient5270 but no promises. Also, you might want to add the last supported version of HexChat, for those that use IRC.
  6. The OP doesn't mention SeaMonkey 2.49.1 at all (which is based on FF 52.4 ESR). Are the same options applicable?
  7. It's true: many (but not all) hardware configurations run Vista SP2 better than 7 SP1. A lot of people are not willing to believe this, however, and software/hardware developers seem to be dropping support at the same time as XP... meaning Vista will have a very short life compared to 7. 7 also has backported the telemetry and forced Windows Updates settings, and I'd rather not have to decipher what updates to not install.
  8. I hate how W10 condescends to the user and it honestly feels like a bunch of HTML/JS hipster-built apps cobbled together on top of the NT 6 kernel with unfitting and seemingly random interfaces that demands an always-on connection to mine your data.
  9. I never really had a problem with it other than the fact the local mod system is bad. The extensibility is quite good too.
  10. Thanks for the support. I already know how to turn off notifications for Security Centre, and I don't really care if there is an issue. Does it auto-update okay or does it require manual intervention in order to update the virus definitions? I didn't see it mentioned in any of the posts I managed to read last night.
  11. Even if you don't use IE it's still worth keeping it up to date because of security reasons, just saying. That said, I quite liked IE 11 when I used it back when I was still running Windows 7. It worked for most sites I tried it on and Edge is a step back in my opinion. In total there should be around 190 updates for Windows 7 after a clean install of SP1.
  12. Does the non-Electron GitHub Desktop application still work? I remember trying last year GH Desktop on Vista when I still had real hardware that ran it, and it worked fine, despite the fact it said Vista wasn't a supported OS.
  13. IOSYS - Cirno's Perfect Math Class I figured IOSYS got their name from a file in Windows 9x, lol.
  14. Sorry... I think it was quite late at night I made that post (around early 9pm UTC). Wasn't thinking and didn't really have any time to read 19 pages. I'll take a look later, though I mainly wanted just a brief overview rather than a full-blown tutorial (I could likely get things sorted myself, if I wasn't confused as to what version was the last for XP, I've seen people saying 4.8 works on XP here, while the last official one was 4.4.304)
  15. I too find it offputting the board software hardly works on anything not modern. Seriously, IPS4 is ridiculously bloated, it hardly works using XP with 1 GB RAM on an Intel Atom... just tons of fancy JS and AJAX everywhere causes the site to severely lag. SMF would be a much more suitable forum software for this specific use case of a forum, 2.x will work with IE6 just fine lmao.
  16. The new UI looks like Edge's. I refuse to touch it. Plus, Firefox's only edge over Chrome pre-Quantum was the flexibility of customisations: now that is gone, it is now pretty much a complete copy of Google Chrome, the browser they oh-so-idol and have some sort of fetish for... I will stay with Pale Moon thank you!
  17. Hey ^_^ I'm new, and don't really have time to read the entire thread. I did a clean installation of Windows XP about two hours ago, and am just wondering, what do I basically need to know to get MSE up and running on XP SP3? IE8 and New Moon XP is installed. Thank you. --pinkmoon89
  18. I've been a fan of Pale Moon since before it became more widely known (been using it since around the end of 2015) and I must say this is some great work that has been put into making it compatible with ol' NT 5.1! I'm having no problems on NT 5.1.2600.5512 fully updated - no POSready 2009 patches - using a build from around last Friday or so. Thanks, now my XP netbook is ready to go and works rather well with the Internet, and also means I don't have to deal with deprecated Chrome backports (SlimJet), the odd forced ClearType glitch (Firefox/SeaMonkey) and spyware (Maxthon). I really appreciate the work you put in this. Thanks again, I don't think I can thank you enough ^.^
