    Does anyone actually still use win95 or 98?

    likely not...

    if you're asking because of the echo's tag, it is historical... basically too much juggling, renaming, and adding/removing of areas as each new winwhatever version came out and old ones were retired...

    Except for fun. I have an Oracle VM box with Win95, and sometimes use it just for the nostalgia.

    It's also fun to use a VM box like that when you get a spam mail telling you that you won a gazillion Euro and only have to pay EUR299 to get it. The spammers seem to be rather surprised when their usual tools don't work... :)

    yeah, winwhatever in general... when the echo is even used... the traffic is nowhere near what it was 10+ years ago...

    Hi! Pat,

    Yes, Win98SE. Short version... one machine currently in a VirtualBx VM that's been running since the early naughties (2004/5?), originally in hardware.

    Cheers,
    Paul.

    Don't you remember if they told you, back then, to use your real name in Fidonet? Surely your parents didn't baptise you "poison", did they?

    That's a per-echo rule though, isn't it?

    Surely your parents didn't baptise you "poison", did they?

    You never know. :-)

    the key is that you at least quoted something this time... the last time there was no quote... other than the extremely icky top posting, i knew what you were replying to this time ;)

    I quoted the other time also or thought I did. I guess not. It's been a while using offline mailers and the BBS. 8-)

    In here MSDOS emulation sometimes for old games and to run the BlueWave so I can read this stuff like in the old days!!!
