Both, really. What sort of things are on it, just out of interest? There's still 3 days to go on it, so I've got a bit of time to think still (presuming someone else doesn't grab it). Where did you get your copy from, just out of interest? Was it something that TechNet subscribers were sent?
Don't know if TechNet subscribers could have gotten it, I think you could order it from MS back in 1999, but I'm not sure if it was free. I got it with the 1999 MSDN map I've just received today, it was in it I've taken a quick look on it, and it looks as if it contains (at least) the following):
- Access Y2K updates
Date Migration Tools for Excel 97/2000
Internet Explorer 5.0
Internet Explorer 16-bit
Money 99 Updates
Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 5 and other Y2K fixes
Outlook Experss 5 update
Office 95/97 updates
Windows 3.1 Y2K updates
Windows 95/98 Y2K updates
Word 5.5 Y2K updates
Works 3.0 & 4.5 Y2K updates
Yeah, it's weird how certain things (ThinkPads, Apple laptops etc) seem to stay expensive even when they're quite old (and even broken!). An example is the Apple AirPort card - it's an old outdated 11 Mbps WiFi card, like a PC Card but slightly smaller so it fits in the slot inside an Apple G3/G4 system - a similar wifi card for a PC would cost nothing, but because lots of people have these Apple machines but there's relatively few cards around (they stopped making them a while back because the newer Macs only take the newer 54 Mbps AirPort Extreme cards, and at the time they were an expensive optional extra that relatively few people chose as wireless networks were far less common back then) the go for about £60 on eBay! Crazy! When we got broadband last summer we needed one, and eventually found one for £40 (not on eBay), but that's still ridiculously expensive for what it is.
Yes, that's what I mean. It's the demand for something that determines the price (or let's say value), not forcingly the capabilities and functions.
Windows 2000 Beta3 RC1 (build 2000) installed well and I have already uploaded some screenshots for you However, I can't get the checked build
of the same beta to run in VPC2007. Just hangs at the "Setup is starting Windows 2000" screen... It's the same with the checked
"final" Beta3, build 2031. The non-checked build 2031 installs fine., but VPC2007 bombs out when it boots for the 1st time (unrecoverable processor error), so it d doesn't work there. So, non-checked build 2000 is the only one I've gotten to work in VPC2007.
