Ancient windows versions

#1
I've recently acquired a lot of old Windows discs through very legal means (no joking). First of all, here's makestation on Windows NT 4.0:

I'd like to see you even try to make that compatible with the primitive IE (and it still is primitive!)

I'm not sure if that's really possible within reason. I'm using SMF, and I'd have to rewrite all of the template files to really make that happen.

Maybe we'll get a really nice mobile version of the site at some point though.

Quit making me feel so old... I used the very first version of "Windows" ever, 1.x!

1.x through 3.x were actually just programs for DOS that provided a graphical environment. NT 4.0 was the first one to boot directly into Windows as a separate OS, but believe it or not, 2K was the the first version that actually didn't rely on DOS and have the option to boot into it.

Millennium edition? LOL, that was worse than Vista and 8 combined. Tongue

There's a pattern of MS releases it seems. ME (bad) -> XP (great) -> Vista (bad) -> 7 (Vista Second Edtion) -> 8 (don't get me started) -> 9 will probably be not good.

They seem to alternate a bit, so you never know. Tongue

they tend to have a larger downfall than an uprise.

it'll be something like...

fantastic > bad > great > very bad > good > horrible > bad > the worst thing to happen to computers anywhere

I still use old versions of windows for compatibility sake.

currently I use a mix of xp, 8.1, 98SE and MSDOS 7.1 (the last one because it's a microsoft product).

I have XP on a virtual machine. I use it from time to time for various reasons. Not often, usually for experimental purposes.
