    Talking Back after 8 years!

    Well all I'm back at the computer again and to be honest I'm almost a noob now. Most of my knowledge is obsolete and/or forgotten. Hopefully I can learn a lot from you guys and vice versa. Also remember "Dopers are hopers, boozers are losers."

    I know the feeling. Technology changes so fast. I used to get on here a bit years ago, and only visited off and on from time to time. Now I'm back where I started :/

    Welcome back guys, the beers are in the fridge

    You can't be that far behind the chase, given that Windows XP is still the most popular OS on the Planet, and it dates back to 2001!

    I am sure that it will all come back to you pretty quickly

    Technology may appear to have changed, but it's rather like automobiles........ a new model every year, lots of eye-candy, but lift the hood and it's the same old story?

    Unless you are seriously into gaming, you won't really notice the difference. At the end of the day the major bottleneck in any computer system is the user..................

    I was reading an Article a day or so back, they're saying that XP is starting to loose a lot of marketshare, and there seeing win7 & other OS's marketshare rise.

    Microsoft are lying bastards

    XP........ 67%
    7......... 15%
    Vista.... 14%

    The rest will be Win 2000 mostly

    OK I need a script.................there are 40,000 target sites.......

    Logon Win 2000
    Logon Win 98SE

    Restart (change my dynamic IP)

    Repeat:

    Logon proxy IPs..............1-100,000

    Repeat:

    Apparently OS-X is fading into the obscurity that Steve Jobs has reserved for it ??? like under 5%

    Linux? yeah! yeah! yeah! they will all go and get pissed when it makes 1%

    Ya know, ive noticed that from all the charts ive seen, linux usage goes up like .5% every year. I dont know if its actually because of the economy or if its the fact that any linux distro today is much easier to install than 10 years ago.

    Hi mungyun,


    I dont know if its actually because of the economy or if its the fact that any linux distro today is much easier to install than 10 years ago.
    Funny that you should say that .............. I have just rediscovered 3 CDs from 1999.

    Red Hat Linux 6.1, S.u.S.E. 6.2 and Linux Pro.................I am about to test them on a couple of Pentium II machines...........
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.

    Welcome back guys, Hopefully you will be a big shot of adrenaline from way back

    I was reading an Article a day or so back, they're saying that XP is starting to loose a lot of marketshare, and there seeing win7 & other OS's marketshare rise.
    I've been on xp for years, just recently got a new laptop with win 7 on it and really like it. Not sure why, maybe it seems a bit more stable - though I am much more knowledgeable now then when I first got an xp run computer in keeping a pc clean and running smoothly, but its probably a joint effort on my part and the new OS - also it seems more streamlined and up-to-date, not sure how to describe it but I like 7.

    Blessings all and welcome back again, guys(gals?)

    I am on Google a few times, only 98.7% of the results are me.

    I have upgraded my Windows XP to Debian Linux back in 2003, and I have not needed to use Windows as my main operating system. I do use it in a virtualbox from time to time, so I can trouble shoot others PC's though.
