Re: Microsoft Millenium

The most unnecessary version of Windows ever, but in my opinion the one with the best branding! Love the name, love the logo and colours. A step backwards for DOS-based Windows, though (I mean...no real mode DOS, what the heck?). And with XP just round the corner, just...unecessary... :?:

Re: Windows 98 Gaming PC

It'd be great for playing DOS games like Theme Park, Duke Nukem...but 100% depends on what kind of games you like. 98 is a great version of Windows, though! Have you installed Revolutions Pack?

Fast, secure and simple. What else is there one could want in an OS?
A home edition for it, which is what ME (Millennium Edition) was supposed to be?
Or Neptune. :cry:

Re: Gadgets in Windows 8/10

8GadgetPack is the most common way to bring the original gadgets to 8/10, but there are alternatives (such as Gadgets Revived). I think it would be interesting for you to do a video about this, Michael! :D

Re: Windows Longhorn

Melcher's website is great for info/hacks for pre-reset Longhorn builds. Hopefully it'll be updated to be just as useful for post-reset builds in the near future! :D

Re: Windows XP

Safety of OSes is overrated. Common sense is most often what one needs to protect themselves. That said, for "average" users, 8/10 are better since they have UAC and built-in anti-spyware/virus. But for power users, really they have the pick of the draw regarding what version of Windows to go for!

Re: Best windows os for old pc?

Use 7 if you must be able to use modern apps or 64-bit apps, such as those by Adobe, or modern versions of Office (2013/16), etc. Otherwise, stick with XP for better performance. :)
