Yeah it's not exactly fashionable and stylish. But doesn't it deserve credit for looking like DOS?

Anyway, carry on as you were. IMHO, Igloo was excellent, Alexis was OK, let's see how this one turns out when it's finished. :)

So far it looks average.

Yeah, the phpBB.com forum also linked to it.

Er, it's kinda PG-13 so I don't know. :blah:

But it was funny nonetheless. :laugh:

Despite the Monopoly, you still have choices.

If Windows bothers you that much, go straight ahead and try:

OS/2
Linux
Macintosh
BeOS
FreeBSD
FreeDOS
ReactOS
...others

and see how fun that will be.

Try that to prevent the "Incorrect DOS version" error message when transferring DOS 6 files to a Windows 9x system.

How about the Black and White theme? save K0 some work. It looks like DOS!

http://www.dosgames.com/~wally4000/forum

Wally's forum uses it.

Unless of course K0 and the guys really want our official homebrew theme, then please ignore this suggestion.

Hi GAMER, Thanks for being the nice cute girl you've been. :) Cute girls make me smile. Anyway, by the looks of it, this forum may be in the process of a Generation Change. Lots of old members have departed (like you) and the forum is an essentially different place in just one year. Anyway, good-bye...

It's the difference between simplicity and complexity. With about 50 million lines of code, I don't expect them to be even close to perfect, neither do I expect Windows to be perfect in 30 years from now. If Microsoft worked REALLY hard to make Windows 99.999% bug-free, it would probably cost $10,00...

Yeah, saw that a few times before. That must have been ultra-embarrasing... It's so hard to do thorough debugging. Either that, or they rushed it.

Check for loose connections inside the laptop. Try removing the batteries and plug it into the wall (if you can). The monitor may be damaged. Or one of the chips might be fried. Was the laptop ever dropped? Dropping a laptop (even from only a few feet) is like a human falling off a skyscraper or a c...

A little bit of nostalgic sentiment, and also for its simplicity (No big clunky registry WooHoo!) Also it is faster and smaller, and has a large variety of software that can run on it.

Who still uses Windows 3.x

I use Windows for Workgroups 3.11 on an old 386.

Anyone else still use a pre-95 Windows for any reason at all?

DOS was first released in 1981, so I think he's looking for a DOS game that came out in 1981. Since it takes a fair amount of time to make a game, it might be hard to find a DOS game that was released in 1981. The Zork series. According to this site, that came out in 1982. Chances are that demos/fre...
