winxpi Posted April 30, 2009 Author Share Posted April 30, 2009 (edited) Don't be too optimistic: Stats are bad and do look like the Dow Jones circa end of 2008.It's sad that so few poeple see the advantage of using w9x, and that nobody in the industry ever recognized these advantages.Morevoer, w98 is perhaps the most hated OS ever by the so called NT-based OSes users.On every forum where dropping or keeping w98 is discussed there are XP fanboys coming out to destroy w98. Everytime. And I suspect that commercial websites like Lexmart who remove w98 drivers do so because of these XP fanboys.It's an incomprehensible hatred, like racism or schizophrenia. It's absolutely incredible.This is even more bizzare since XP is not known for being a success technicaly. It's rather the failed experiment of the new window generation, like w3.1 was to w98. Vista was a slight improvement in some way, wondows 7 should be the real fix.Nevertheless I'm still very pleased with the activity of this board and all the ongoing projects we can find.I'm happy somebody finally said what I was thinking all the time. The NT -Line guys should stop discrediting Win9x, it got support stopped by MS so what do they want more? However that's the issue so many Win 9x forums also were close because of administrations which didn't wan't new topics in 9x sections or XP fanboys discrediting the old 9x Line ("use XP because 9x is cr ap and so on"). Of course I aggree XP some way bether than 98, but 98 would have been much more stable than XP if it had a NT kernel too. So MS is to blame and not the 9x Fanbase.We did the best to even bugfix old system bugs done by MS, the NT line threadens that Upgrades like KUP could get 98 be used much longer than Windows 2000 ,and that would be a big success. Because of the compatibility to old and many new games I prophecy you 98 WILL still be used after the last Windows 2000 system has upgraded to XP /7or even only XP/Vista/7 and successors exists. Windows 98 is used all time, I needed an Windows 98 Boot disk in 2008 so they could install Windows XP on my NOW using XP Laptop, so one can say WIHTOUT 98 XP WOULDN'T EVEN WORK in some cases!And second:Just out of curiosity, what is the kind of stuff you download apparently so much from P2P, that is executable code, that has nfos and that DOES NOT SMELL FISHY ? Some people might download stuff which belongs to the cultural heritage of humanity, and which is not available commercially, maybe because it smells fishy to some.The best music clip EVER made is in Estrellita Castro's 1938 movie Suspiros de España, made in Goebbel's UFA Studios in Berlin, I just don't get tired of it; or Estrellita Castros' movie Hijos de la Noche, made 1939 in Mussolini's Cinecittá in Roma; or the music clips in Imperio Argentina's movie Carmen (de la Triana), made in 1938 by Goebbel's UFA/Hispano-Film Produktion in Berlin. These internationalist Nazi movies have gypsy heroines who don't speak Deutsch, this doesn't conform to the truths we all must know. Their copyright status is probably unresolvablable or expired, two of the above examples were produced by a German-Spanish joint venture 70 years ago, dissolved before the end of WWII, produced in a Berlin which was split between 4 victorious powers. I doubt that the U.S. Office of Alien Property Custodian, or its British etc counterparts, or the German government, could prove their ownership in court, and all the artists are long dead. The objective of the time was not to make money with the movies of the defeated powers, but to destroy the Nazi movie industry, which was the only competitor to Hollywood, Marlene Dietrich had gone to Hollywood, Estrellita Castro to Berlin. The beginnings of the movies start with "Filmoteca Nacional de España", http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filmoteca_Española without a copyright notice, in Spain it's considered part of their national heritage. There are some Estrellita Castro clips from these emule downloads on YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ep9dKLlJezw with some people wanting to make Suspiros de España Spain's national anthym, but that won't happen with a song of such an origin. About 20+ other performers have made recordings of it, my favorites among them are Pasión Vega and Rocío Jurado; Plácido Domingo wasn't that good at it, he tried, but maybe women are better at singing this Nazi poetry. http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suspiros_de_España and http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estrellita_Castro The lyrics of the song can be found at http://www.lyricsondemand.com/o/orquestami...spaalyrics.htmlSo the mule not only disseminates malware.To be kind I ask you just, what the**** has WW2 to do with Windows 98 or Win9x ?
