  1. Oh my god... All those gimmicky and goofy Geico and Progressive commercials on Hulu nowadays. Okay, cool, you want to advertise insurance... but why make these ads so unbearable to watch?
  2. When I install it on my brother's old Gateway, it gives me a crash error telling me it will send data back to Microsoft. It didn't even install the browser. Any details why?
  3. Oh, I seen it allowed Vista and XP to download so I figured it supported XP/Vista. Kinda sucks all the best programs are losing supports for the best OSes. And what it is called? New to all of this, so I would love to see what it is. Thank you so much~!
  4. Torch browser is a chromium-based browser that supports XP. https://torchbrowser.com/ Hopefully we can get a KernelEX like program for XP and Vista, it sucks to see them die. And it also hurts to see how fast it has been because XP is almost 2 decades old and Vista is a decade old. Sorry for being so nostalgic... Now that 7 is gone, it kinda sucks. I do wanna try Linux, though I wanna use older OSes for awhile now. Honestly the mid-2000s seemed like the best era for computing.
  5. Hi; I am interested in buying either of these 2 UMPCs. I just wanna know which one is worth buying and if I should just use Vista or 7. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Panasonic-Toughbook-UMPC-U1GQGXG2M-GOBI-Dual-Battery-Touchscreen-w-Win-7/373041695646?_trkparms=aid%3D1110001%26algo%3DSPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131231084308%26meid%3De2cb2d20a1204b49b0b066c96e47620e%26pid%3D100010%26rk%3D6%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D323990909289%26itm%3D373041695646%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2047675&_trksid=p2047675.c100010.m2109 or https://www.ebay.com/itm/Sony-VAIO-VGN-UX380N-4-5-inch-Laptop-1GB-RAM-40-GB-HD-UMPC/323990909289?epid=118315083&hash=item4b6f5cf169:g:zOkAAOSwZcxd2sZ1 Personally I like the Vaio's design more, though performance is always the winner. I am leaning towards Windows 7 as I want to run modern programs, though I like Vista's nostalgic aurora colors on it's control panel and desktop background. Which is the better deal? I want a small handheld UMPC running a legacy OS that can do all the modern tasks I need. Other folk's opinions could help me decide. I might upragde it too 8.1 or a Linux distro(might dual-boot instead), once Chrome drops support for 7. It just sucks because time flies... and being so young, I never treasured these beautiful legacy OSes and I wish I did. Thanks.
