many fixes?

I hope that dont hang more run on Win98 ;-)


evlncrn8 04-08-2009 00:13

nope, win98 should be ok this time ;)

although, 6.2.5 will be out soon, its probably best to upgrade to that one, because even 6.2.3 had some bugs (no known hang/crash ones though) :)

Nice.. at least this one is even better.. but, seriously, why do you need win98 support? :P

And why not?
For instance I still use that system, and I guess there are many other people using it. And of course, I try to develop all my tools compliant to that OS.

Think about people who cannot afford the update to a new machine, so there is no other way with and old one, since NT systems need much more resources than W9X systems...

So, I totally agree with win98 support... :D

Not that much I think :) For example, WinXP is running OK on my friend's 8-years old Laptop with 128MB RAM and 700MHz Celeron CPU, though he has tuned it a bit (by disabling unnecessary services) for comfortable working. Another example - Win2k system on athother Celeron with 64MB RAM working well as a gateway for >30 computers. I don't think there are much people who have computers with lower capabilities than the mentioned ones, besides that, the 9x systems are very insecure by their design, easy to get to ring-0 and mess all aroung, so not recommended for using nowadays.
