I found this site while looking for old OS like so many before me. I collect x86 (and x86-64) OSs and run them on a beefy ESXi rig virtualized. I also love the old games, especially the SSI ones. I have a box of old stuff from the 286 days that might have some things that you don't yet.

Hi there. I Found BetaArchive when I was looking to make a video on upgrading from Windows Codename Chicago to Windows Codename Threshold/Redstone. The numerous amount of BetaArchive references from BetaWiki brought me here, and now the best way to get access to all of these betas is through BetaArchive. I hope that I get FTP Access and I am able to complete my project.

Hello :beta: community,

Long story short, I'm into software preservation in general and emulation preservation specifically. Been active since 1997. This seem like a cool place for what I'm passionate about.

Regards,
Ramon

Hi there BA,

joining in from Germany, using the Computer and Internet since 2005.
I too love old software and wouldn't want to lose something, that many might consider some form of art.

See you later,
TheKherut

Hi all. I too am new here and I am so very glad I've found a place like this. Now I can finally justify to my family why I've kept all those old games cd's for so long. *hehe*

Hello.
My hobby is programming in assembler. (My home PC is still run on Win XP x64 SP2 with newer Windows only in VMs)
24/06/2019 I created 1st COM server library completely written in assembler - 8kb size. sources are open.
I inspired by idea to make DX SDK antology with examples and tools in it completely rewritten in assembler. (And after creating COM server it is become possible task, because whole DX is built over COM)
This site is only place where I could found Microsoft DirectX 4.0 SDK (1996-02). Until yesterday I didn`t know that it is even exists.
That is not problem if I got download access later or even never - nobody knows that such version were released.
But for completeness I hope I could grab it.
Nice to know that such archive as betaarchive.com is exists.

I just wanted to say hello to the community. I have been a computer nerd since 1999 and as times have changed, things have changed, softwares have changed but legacy stuff is still the best that is why I joined this community where there are so many like minded people.

I haven't done an introduction yet, so I guess I'll do one now.
Hello! My name's Cosmo (you can call me Dodder). I gained my interest in betas at 15. I found this site a while ago from betawiki and now I'm here! I hope sometime in the future I can make a valuable contribution here, and I love the work being done here!
