As I recall they thought it was broken because it produced such a small amount of heat. Something along those lines.

Re: A Woot for OSR2?
2.5 (also known as Win95C I think), also looked more like Win98 due to it having IE4 slipstreamed into it.
But I think OSR2 (Win95B) was the more common one, and was upgradable to C.
Version strings I think were 4.00.1111B and 4.00.1212C respectively.
Re: A Woot for OSR2?
OSR2.5 would be a better contender... AGP support and slightly more on the USB front.
Re: xfce4 theme @keithpeter
Sort of. I think Arthur first appeared on the Master Compact, then the first Arch came out so they improved it and couldn't call it Arthur 2 for the reasons above and it became RISC OS 2, which lasted until the A3000 (the last officicial Beeb).

Well that's the Mysteron problem sorted.

The Great El Reg Bakeoff?
He's more akin to Captain Scarlet in this respect.... he can still be killed - he just doesn't stay dead. I wonder if anyone's tried a few million volts. I mean it works for Mysterons... but then again, Captain Harkness might just enjoy it a little too much.

I had to hide it twice on a Win 7 laptop I was doing updates on.
I see they've ditched the DMF format.

Re: We don't have them here....
Worst part is, you can guarantee that some daft people will call 999 because of this..
There's nothing to say that Missy didn't regenerate.. Time Lords/Ladies don't necessarily have to change their look after a regeneration. Romana is a good example, and they can revisit 'old faces', as we saw in the anniversary special.
The appearance of the Heavy Weapons Dalek was unexpected too.

Your terminology is incorrect, for viruses are small and efficient in what they are designed to do... Windows is by no means small, and efficient? Well...

Re: "What could possibly go wrong?" @TOH
Wouldn't WinME be worse? People had a hardtime starting it... and stopping it.
I've seen a Jolla in my local CeX for a tidy £135. Tempting plan as I have a second back with mine - stopped using mine a while ago because I was sick of the WiFi issues. Two different basestations, WPA or WPA2 - it just craps out and I either have to turn the WiFi off and on again, or the phone itself to restore operation.
Was going to keep hold of it because it was a good phone (aside from the WiFi issue), and the Barclays Android app won't install unless you remove 'su' from /sbin because it thinks it's trying to install on a rooted phone and spits its dummy out - and now they're stopping doing hardware it may just be time to part ways with it.
So we can expect to see a genuinely indestructible smartphone in the case of a 3310 sometime in the future?
Re: RE: I'm probably not going to even look at it until SP1
And the NT version number is now 10. I think it changed in either the 2nd or 3rd beta release.
Re: Selective data
And 5 SPs for 3.51, and 1-6a for NT4.
Most stuff needs at least SP5 in the case of NT3.51, (Office 97 being an example), while most things with NT4 needed at least SP3.
Win98=bad, Win98SE=good, WinME=bad. But then you have the problem of Win2k (good, but released before ME, and XP, which (eventually, admittedly), was better than 2k.
I wonder how many niggles are still lurking around from the NT 3.51 days - the display control panel from there lasted until WinXP.

They flog the ongoing support as it's RaaS (Robots as a Service) - failure to keep up payments or cancelling the agreement results in a remote wipe+shutdown of the bot(s).
Resistance is futile.

"Need to knock the cobwebs off of your bias. You are remembering Windows from the late 90s. A bit has changed since then, you might want to read up."
Not even that.... Windows 3.1 files have a date stamp of 1993.
