    Hello I have a computer running 98SE (can be ME if that would be significantly easier though I am terrified of the "Windows protection error. You must restart your computer" bluescreen that came up once a week without fail when I did use that OS, forcing a reinstall) I get my internet through...

    This doesn't happen on Linux...

    My dad is getting the same problem on his pc that made me delete my Windows install completely. When he runs apps that use openGL like the RTCW game, it keeps freezing and looping part of the same sound over and over again for a few minutes. After that it either unfreezes for a minute or two...

    Replace Vista with XP

    Vista is the worst operating system since ME. And the primary reason micro$hite is rapidly losing ground to apple and Linux. Yes, in the meantime before you can upgrade to Linux or get a Mac you definately should go back to XP. You also should not need to tweak Vista to get the best performance...

    Game recommendations?

    If you are likely to be playing online I highly recommend Return to castle Wolfenstein. Half life 2, doom 3, quake 4, enemy territory: quake wars will all run perfectly well on that machine. Also Serious Sam 2, Far Cry will work fine. If only single player then I highly recommend a very...

    comp came with FEDORA fc8, need to install XP-PRO for business

    Dunno why bios would be odd on a Linux computer?? Set usb device or cd drive as your first boot device. If you dont know where to find the boot device look through the menus until you find a list with 1. hard drive 2. cd rom 3. Removable. or something like that (device names should be listed)...

    DX10 on Windows XP

    Just move to Linux. If more people do that then windows will lose its only advantage: Compatibility, as developers will make for Linux instead- as thats would be where the moneys at.

    DX10 on Windows XP

    Hah great OS my ***. Anyway, XP will still be supported by openGL (which is better than DirectX anyway) BTW, If vistas so great why does it need sooooo much memory?

    Solved: Trying to Install Win 2000...

    I strongly recommend using Linux. (though you may want a newer version depending how old the one you have is) Would be much more suitable in this situation and installing it is even easier than windows 2000. Head over to the Fedora website and download the install dvd and burn it. Installing it...
