Re: iTunes on Windows 9x

KernelEx isn't that great in terms of program compatibility. While you can get some software to work, it's not going to be like BlackWingCat's Extended Kernel for Windows 2000.

Re: Contribution requirements

Not much to worry about. Andy and mrpjiey have more important things to do anyway. But if one of them happens to stumble upon it, they might update if they get the chance to.

Re: Donator status

I think it's perfectly fine to give those who donated to help BetaArchive access to a special forum on here.

As DanielOosterhuis said,
DanielOosterhuis wrote:the donator forum isn't all that active.

So it isn't much to be a part of anyway.

Re: What will you do when Windows 7 hits eol?

I could care less about Windows 7 going out of support as I have since moved to Windows 8.1 or 10.

Re: BSOD when installing Windows NT 4.0

I think your issue is that the Intel Atom you most likely have doesn't support virtualization. I'd look here (https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en ... essor.html) for your CPU, then look to see if it supports virtualization.

Re: [Debate] The future of the wiki

Should there be a specific criteria for the wiki moderator rank? I just feel that some written criteria should help to get some more people to become moderators. This would help if the wiki is opened up and we have a large number of trolls and spammers.

Re: Where is Windows 9x(95, 98, ME) used in 2019?

I think 9x operating systems are mainly used today for purposes of nostalgia and for running old software. It is nearly impossible to use Windows 9x OSes for practical uses due to lack of security and software support.

I think they do save betas, after all, on 2008 there was a HUGE beta leak. They don't. As I said earlier, they don't waste shelf or disk space with betas. Once they have updated their drivers and software, they will delete or destroy betas. They serve no use to any company once the full version of ...
