    Sure feel free to post keys here. I will, at some point, create a freebies section as well for this kind of thing.
    Welcome to EHW
    Thx.
    I played a lot of games back in the day like "Paperboy, Winter and Summer Games to C64" and "Zelda, Mario, Battletoads and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the NES." i think i owned most consoles over the years.

      lol, can't remember the title, was on windows 95/98 that I played it.1 CD based game had a pentium1 cpu@66Mhz with 32Mb of Ram and 1Gb hhd along with a 4mb video card. "The first Pentium microprocessor core was code-named "P5". Its product code was 80501 (80500 for the earliest steppings Q0399). There were two versions, specified to operate at 60 MHz and 66 MHz respectively, using Socket 4. It contained 3.1 million transistors and measured 16.7 mm by 17.6 mm for an area of 293.92 mm2. It was fabricated in a 0.8 µm BiCMOS process." ROTFL, can U picture even trying to load an operating system today with those specs??

        The mind boggles when you think about what we ran back in the day and the systems we used to use

              HAHA. Windows NT from what i remember is a Server Windows from back in 1993? It was a really Bad OS. It may be good for its time, but I'm an XP fan i loved that OS. I had a guy ask me to install NT on his computer. I think that was in the mid-2000s, 2008, or close to that. I was like What is this? Go out and buy XP instead of this; it's too old to work today.

                XP was certainly one of the best that MS produced followed by Win 7. Im even a fair fan of Windows 10 assuming you minus the telemetry aspect etc. It is still a solid OS. If you combined the stripped back nature of XP with the advancements of Win 10, that would be great.

                  What i love about XP is that you can customize everything, and i mean everything. Want to customize booting screen sure go ahead, there was nothing on XP you could not change. I don't feel the same with any other windows after XP. For me, PC stands for a personal computer, but how can you make anything personally if you need a 3 part program that uses PC performance to change how windows ten looks and runs.

                  You should have seen my Laptop back in the day.

                  This is the only video i can find of one of the Laptops i had with XP on.


                  i can't find the video i have where i had changed the Booting screen and some other stuff. But even this good looking Thema tells you the difference between XP and ten. i Know you can easy Change windows 7 Booting screen you just more limited since you can use win7boot to do it. But windows 10 is to much work to do so, and I'm not even sure how it is going to look.

                    lol, U give Win 10 too little credit. My Dell Dimension 3100 has been able to run 3 OS from microsoft halfway smoothly. XP,7,and 10. The others(Vista & 8/8.1) were so much worse I had to use linux mint. Mint IS better than 10 on many systems,especially my optiplex 160 with the atom cpu and sys graphics.

                      There was a lot of customization you could do with XP manually or view utilities such as TweakUI and others. Windows 10 does not have as much customization but still has a fair bit. That being said most of the modifications I make are for performance/usability reasons. I tend not to play with the GUI side of it as I am fairly happy with it.

                      @shuck6566

                      Windows 10 is rather forgiving hardware requirements wise, I have been fairly impressed thus fair when running it on less that stellar systems, still does a pretty good job.

                        Personally, I don't like Windows anymore. I only use it because I play and edit as many games as I do, so I need it. My Laptop has Ubuntu installed on it, and i have to say I like that OS a lot better. It looks nice run smooth, and it's just a lot more secure.

                        "There was a lot of customization you could do with XP" is an understatement since there was noting on, XP you couldn't customize from what i remember. But anyway, I'm not really a fan of windows anymore i only use it for the same reasons i use YouTube. There is nothing better.

                          I have gone the Linux route on a few occasions but ultimately from a device and software support point of view, Windows is king and for efficiency and steady work flow (for me) Windows cannot be beat. If Linux was a true competitor then perhaps, but Linux is fragmented so far as to say there is no one true Linux distro which I think is part of the issue when it comes down to unified hardware and software support from Vendors.

                          Ultimately though, its all money. Linux is not driven by corporate interests and while that can be a good thing, it also means there is no uniform driving force behind it, no money to throw around in the interest of collaboration with vendors/partners etc.

                          In any case, depending on use scenerio Linux can be great, no doubt about it.

                            As long you use NVIDIA and Intel, then Ubuntu is good i have not had a Driver problem so far for standard drivers. My problem is gaming support for Linux. Steam has a built-in program that Emulates all games on Linux, but it doesn't work with all games, but most. I have played some games on Linux, but when it comes to gaming, i would rather use Windows.
