Post subject:  AbandonedABW has gone...

...which shocked me a bit, since I sometimes went there if I was having trouble getting a VHD to work; I'd go there and download it to work out where I'd gone wrong. Well, since that's why I went there, and it's gone, I'm wondering how many other people went there for that reason - and whether anyone would be interested if I was to set up a page on my own website, offering virgin installs of any OS that I can think of/actually do?

Obviously, since I'm a student and a semi-professional musician, it's going to take a while to get all of the systems I've got working and available, but I'll be more than happy to do it.

The main site was closed down, however the forums are still online.

If you still want to come to the forums, go to http://coreduo.me.uk/ - NOTE, please don't post asking for files from Abandoned, because they WON'T be supplied.

OABW is not AbandonedABW. They just did the same things.

Fine by the Abandoned staff if another site pops up.. but...

1) Don't expect any support, downloads, sql, code from us.
A) Don't directly. rip off our site/name.

The said person (sc4reactor) now has his own forums (http://sc4reactor.freeforum.me.uk/) that he has banned almost everyone except himself and someone else called MinWinUser from.

Yeah Abandoned was an excellent place for abandonware except for some of the files being corrupt and MS-DOS 6.22 having the labels messed up causing the setup to get confused. It's too bad it went down. Oh well. At least we've still got BETAArchive to get abandonware from. 8)

NB: For those saying CoreDuo's forums are dead - no its nothing to do with Abandoned, there was a server change...and Windows Server 2k3 had to be reimaged

Its really sad, why are all these paged closed so far? or abandoned theirself...

Abandoned closed in the first place ...basically legalites (although we weren't being sued).

Other sites that were linked to Abandoned eg the forums are down cause the Windows Dedi was reimaged and has not been fully restored yet.
