  1. It is something that our ancestors have nothing to relate to. I'm sure there are a lot of people in the 90s that didn't think that the internet would last this long.
  2. I can no longer tell whether or not Windows 11 is popular. Before EOL for Windows 10 I could tell that Windows 11 was in the vast minority. That is always the case when a new OS comes out, but there seemed to be an even greater drop-off than in previous years. It is possible that the sales focus has shifted. I have taken exactly zero support calls on Windows 11 which is saying something considering how long it has been available. Then again, there also hasn't been any surge in the IOT side of things, which was a trend in past OS releases where a client will want to stay on the old OS that can't be sold. The same people that are buying IOT now are the same ones who just have the qualified devices that were getting it before.
  3. I'm not particularly interested in cloud gaming as it is, forgetting multiplayer already having issues with server latency that has a real effect on games, putting it into cloud doesn't actually help that. Of course, the companies who do make these services are not interested in this experience or preservation, only to make a buck. So for ported titles (aka things on PC or console already) there is no no big whoop about it. When it comes to exclusive things, that is where the problem lies. There are games that were on the Gaikai platform before Sony bought them that are lost forever. Some of them have physical client versions that are unusable. All online only or required titles have this same fate eventually, they will get lost to time or be unusable at some point.
  4. The link posted above does not fully encapsulate the URL leaving off the locale part, and it seems like that site default to German (de) if the locale is not used.
  5. Webp being such a terrible idea, how about any methods to block it at the OS level, no matter what browser you are using? Since as I am reading, the WEBP vulnerability is not limited to Chrome or even Windows.
  6. Are you able to post on MSFN from this Puppy computer or are you using something else?
  7. I presume it is to show ads. For Nexus (the modding site) it is to show you the donation message.
  8. Manual quoting works of course. I guess I was being lazy.
  9. I quoted the MS quote in your post. Unlike previous versions of IPB, you can't change the text on the quote bar. I was adding to that text, not necessarily replying to you. :p
  10. I doubt it has anything to do with Windows. The EFI bootloader hands off to Windows and I'm fairly certain that Windows itself is agnostic to which bootloader was actually used. Especially since Windows is not an EFI application, it is still just the same x86 or amd64 binary that the bootloader chains to no matter which bootloader is being used. The previous example I gave relates to nothing that Microsoft or Windows does, but rather how firmwares can not follow the spec. Whereas BIOS can't boot an EFI Application because it doesn't know what it is, UEFI is supposed to only boot EFI applications. Obviously there are various situations where you can boot a legacy bootloader under UEFI but this is not by design. I'm also not sure whether or not the firmware or the bootloader even cares about the disk type. I don't think enough testing has been done to actually conclude whether or not MS is telling the truth about what actually works vs not, regardless of what they support.
  11. I was under the impression that the white screen at startup was due to Google trying to install an update that was previously downloaded. Back when Chrome was supported on Win7 I would see this every day I opened the browser, but since there are no more updates, it just opens right away.
