Pop quiz!

How can you tell when you've won an argument?

When the only way your opponent can respond to your valid points is with baseless accusations and comments such as "winxp's dos sucks" and "Bill Gates blows".

No, it has not really changed since DOS was all you could get, and it's still there. Nice. The only thing that they changed in Windows 2000/NT (and everything based upon that) is that -- probably it's just me again -- I can not change the size of a "cmd" window :/

Is the following statement any stronger " Probably the anti-activationist lusers spreading misinformation"?, I repeat, is it?. I highly doubt it, even worse, you're taking just a lil phrase, forgetting the rest of the explanation where it was taken from, perhaps like trying to avoid the facts revealing the weak nature of your only point that translates as "XP is more stable", which btw, I agreed. Want true memory handling?, try linux and stop glorifying things before you get an overall taste.

im not saying my opinion, im saying the facts, i used to run duke3d under win98, now i cant under winxp.

its not because winxp "can close a program without losing system stability"

since 80386 we were able to do that, only microsoft delayed 15 years.

Windowe ME's DOS would do the trick, but it's a true pain in the ass to make a flawless bootdisk, so nothing like Windows 98 for oldschool fun.

The facts?

You mean like the following:

Just sit down, be quiet, and LISTEN to yourself for just a moment.

Now, why would Microsoft go to all that trouble to deliberately make it harder for some people to use XP for a particular purpose? What's in it for them?

Oh. How silly of me. I should have guessed. There's a major conspiracy amongst the games publishers to bribe Microsoft into making XP unable to run older DOS games, just to force users to buy newer games!

All sarcasm aside, I can think of no benefit accruing to Microsoft that would make them deliberately prevent users from running DOS programs. At the time of XP's release, there would have been a very small minority of people running DOS programs, given that Win 95 was six years old at the time.

When you think about, if stopping people using DOS was theit intent, they did a damn poor job at it. In fact, if Microsoft HAD wanted to stop people using DOS programs, they wouldn't have included a command prompt in XP at all!

David Ferstat hey you dumbass, if u knew shit about programming you would understand me.

They do that for the same reason they do not put IE/OE uninstaller on the windows cd-rom, only in the sp1.

So fools like you that cant even install sp1, and keep using their programs.

The zdoom forums aren't hosted by Randy for people to call each other names. It's fine to argue about what you believe are the facts, but please stick to your "proofs" to back up your opinions.

You are in the wrong place. Go off to somewhere like OUTMINDS Forum: Just For Fun or something.
