Oh yes, I remember that thread.


I don't think I could ever go back to XP, nevermind 98!


Someone will probably chip in that they still have a Windows 3.11 machine somewhere.

Re: What operating system do you use?

Windows 11 but only because the games I play are not supported on Linux because the Dev's think that Linux will allow cheats to be created, they even think MSI Afterburner allows them to be created

If they add Keyboard and Mouse support to them on Xbox though I will start playing them on there and then Linux get's installed on my PC.

It's an old system, because I don't believe it can be updated it's a Samsung NC-10
