Fast windows9 ? build from 95/98/2k/xp without workgroups?

Build from single core cpu with addon USB multicore keys using busy fell over operating system. No more SMP slow pokes.

Fast video system mpeg4/h.264 webpage download in 1/25 seconds on RGB lcd monitor. That is the speed of presenting the whole screen at once to be capturable by digital camera.

Then you need touch screen for tablets and touch pad for netbooks.

The older operating system is rated by productivity and pixel numbers in video graphics system. w95 is for smartphones, and xP for netbooks. Win95 can be run with 8 mB of memory. XP needs 128 mB plus browser history storage(512 mB).

This kind of going back to text is what online banking found out about mobile online banking. text is king of speed. And pixel data is video encryption(10 digit) without character recognition.

We have productivity in speed to avoid rich text experience like a plague.

Re: Fast windows9 ? build from 95/98/2k/xp without workgroups?

Win95 needed to be stripped down from floppy, hdd and cdrom buses to USB and wifi. Peripherals are all USB. 8mB reserved in 256 mB of sram in SDHC cards for operating system per computer core, The rest of 4 gB for data storage in data compressed form. Install four USB connectors to add more computer cores(cpu and sdhc memory).

No more VGA on pci bus. USB data in mpeg4/h.264 goes directly to hdmi chipset to RGB monitor.

Browser connects WiFi to internet gateway routers of free hotspots.

Tablet cost will will be further reduced. And speed of 1 ghz will handle data very fast if pixels of 800x480 small screen is used.

The future of operating system is to tax less resources for speed of data delivery. Many other operating systems are too wasteful of resources.

Re: Fast windows9 ? build from 95/98/2k/xp without workgroups?

New win95(windows9) however needs system restore feature that XP has. If you go back to the OS install date, then go back to today; the registry will straighten out and system will operate more smoothly.

This is an important restore advantage. It takes much less time then pristine reinstall of the operating system.

This is because when you restore the install date, some program which got autoupdated can not work. Return to today the files will operate ok. Autoupdated files have different codes than originally installed codes.

The difference of win95 and windows9 is never to use SMP operating system. Adding computer cores need codes that can do priority data transfer to new unused cores to process data in parallel(simultaneous processing of data).

It is obvious that win95 developed into windows9 is to provide a path from consumer tablets and netbooks to get on ansi text websites of enterprise system such as Bank of America mobile online banking. Microsoft still has the task of supplying legacy operating system in the developed countries to support older data centers.

But eventually in the interest of speed and productivity of task done per second, enterprise system will rely on text display, never graphics and colors.

Re: Fast windows9 ? build from 95/98/2k/xp without workgroups?

As we can revive old laptops, if memory required from operating system can be around 128 mB.

The solution became rather simple, use Win2k(64 mB). Microsoft .net strategy still update all the available files if you request autoupdate in control panel. However, some of us prefer not to be too bloated in security updates. It tends to slow down your computer.

To modernize the browser, you have to download the Firefox 7 beta. And also Adobe flash player 10.3 too. Both will then autopdate your downloads from their sites.

Next is to find a cheap pcmcia wifi card. If you are an expert, get orinoco(2.4DS4) or PC24E-H-FC. wifi/b is faster when users are too many. I prefer Dlink DWA642, or Marvel 8335 Ehome 101. Orinoco drivers maybe confusing in win2k but easier to use in Linux SliTaz 3.0(320 mB drams needed) distro. The other two may come with drivers on cd.

The Win2k is almost as modern as WinXP(128 mB minimum), except simpler in graphics GUI codes. If you buy Compaq M700 stripped down from ebay, you could find Compaq quick recovery cd set to install Win2k on wiped hdd. As you know, laptops have sticker for windows operating system and keycodes on the bottom to show you owned a legit operating system when you bought it.

So far, I have been very happy with win2k and in as low as 128 mB of drams. Surfing on the internet with pcmcia wifi is pleasant. And M700 is affordable from ebay scrappers.

Re: Fast windows9 ? build from 95/98/2k/xp without workgroups?

Linux is free, but the price is too high if cheap laptops don't have enough memory slots to do Linux(1 gB optimum). The old laptops however had always done windows. Win2k preferred.

Its then a question of how much more memory the new browsers need?

Firefox 7 has reduced requirements for webpage history(swapped or compressed to further reduce memory used)

However, flash player is still good for Firefox than other protocol for video streaming

We now have a good cheap laptop revival project going. Fun to invest both in time and money.

Re: Fast windows9 ? build from 95/98/2k/xp without workgroups?

But for cloud computing in enterprise system; we don't need the BSD networking operating system for workgroups.

so Windows9 only need win95 and a good browser startup with wifi.

Unfortunately, firefox started with Win2k today. they have to cover Win95 later when text webpage for smartphones gets more popular. In the mean time, we are experimenting with Win95 on Toughbook cf-25. and IE5.5 with Ace explorer(html) modules as updates.

So far Ace on IE6 is used along side with Firefox7 beta.

To get Win95 laptops work with pcmcia wifi cards(5v 16bit) We have to find the drivers that has a list of cards it supported in Win95. The driver is Agere wireless lan drivers 7.82 at softpedia.com to be downloaded. It has a very respectable list of pc-cards it supported including USB wifi too.

This makes Win95 a cinch for really conservative resources of older laptops to be put to work nicely at that(32 mB drams?).

http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/NETWOR … -782.shtml

Download size 2.2 mB for windows all. Last updated September 25th, 2008. Includes list of supported wifi orinoco cards.

For Ralink wifi chipset cards before 2004 to be used with Win95, download from this website:

http://download.cnet.com/Ralink-zip/300 … 65798.html

updated Dec 15, 2004. Win85 to XP, no vista or 7; list of /b/g cards.

Re: Fast windows9 ? build from 95/98/2k/xp without workgroups?

Win95c is the latest version with USB features. When Win95 was released, it was buggy and Microsoft added its own anticrash module. I have always use anticrash v5.0 with very good results(never a blue screen). Now its very difficult to find and download anticrash v5.0. Hard to find copy here:

http://www.freewareweb.com/cgi-bin/arch … mp;ID=1188

Its 4.5 mB long. anticrash5x.exe. Good luck with it if you use Win95c. I have a copy of Win95 developed by IBM for Toughbook cf-25(have modern feature of shutdown recovering all data from drams) but no install disk to backup. May have to use magiciso to burn a image?

Win95 needs the codes from WinMe autoupdated scandisk(scanUSBkey) which rebuilds OS on bootup from cab(compressed Win95 installer). Then add system restore to revert to dates when OS runs well. These features make Win95 upgraded.

footnote:
cf-25 can have 96 mB of drams, so it can have Win2k(64 mB minimum) working. But a modern Win95 can do more without workgroup. have more of a browser instead. The real advantage of Win95 is it can work with only 8mB of drams. Its hardly bloated and can add many new technology without bugs galore.

Re: Fast windows9 ? build from 95/98/2k/xp without workgroups?

There are many apps that started from Win95 and is now usable with windows8. Using it for windows9 will be ideal. To look at these Win95 apps and utilities:

http://www.freedownloadmanager.org/down … _software/

There are of course, many other websites still offer Win95 software for download. Specific apps for Win95 is how to store long programs on floppies of limited capacity(indexed infinte data storage on virtual servers?).

Have fun with new technology? Look at some older technology to use today?

Re: Fast windows9 ? build from 95/98/2k/xp without workgroups?

W2k at 64 mB of memory requirement is the best solution for many older laptops made in vintage 1999. These laptops are limited to 256 mB of p66 FSB. Speed can be increased if p100 drams can be installed.

The only thing that Microsoft is not doing autoupdate is the browser. Firefox can be substituted for IE6, And if you did the download from Firefox website, you also get autoupdate from Firefox. Then you need to download Adobe flash player to get their autoupdate. These autoupdates will keep your W2k usable for quite a few more years.

Microsoft had discontinued support for W2k sometime ago. but if you opted for windows update, the legacy autoupdates for w2k is still in the .net strategy system(ISP service for autoupdate), and autoupdate will exhaust all updated files(sp4) to install them on your computer. Lucky you.

Those of us not owning a W2k laptop, may get lucky to acquire a vintage 1999 restore cd by laptop manufacturer to reinstall W2k without a keycode. It costs between $10 to $20 on ebay. Recovery disk is a floppy which can reload W2k install disks.

Linux distros use repositories to let you choose updates. 10 years ago Debian used synaptic to download and install by apt-get from websites. Not much has been changed since. The fallacy is that dependency files which is listed with each linux app has to be installed as well. for many years repositories may not have the library updated for dependency file downloaded on new apps and kernels. This resulted in many wifi drivers no longer usable but still hanging on in the kernels. will it ever be straightened out by Linus and company. Not very likely. You have to hope that tiny distros will strip out all these bugs. Its better not to have faulty drivers then to have them and wasting time to fix them. We advocate buying peripherals that can be used with working drivers in any distro. Report usable drivers in any distro versions is a big help to users..

Re: Fast windows9 ? build from 95/98/2k/xp without workgroups?

The progression of windows operating system told us the way operating system got bloated. In real life, the way information is delivered is still by language text or speech. Speech may have emotions, but text may have fonts. Then text has colors and graphics to help illustrate into a rich experience. Today rich experience is data compressed by zoom to less resolution in mpeg4/h.264 codes for transmission speed. Then zoom back to huge resolution to your hearts content for rich experience on your own computer.

And we are just beginning to experience speech as way of communication to get answers fast. it will go through human engineering and accurate info from wiki to get productivity in our lives.

The purpose is clear, how we will do windows9; using different technology of data compression, data channels and pixel data instead of ascii code data.

If you don't understand the technology shift, then you have to watch the new products that sell well above older products. We have moved on.

Re: Fast windows9 ? build from 95/98/2k/xp without workgroups?

Once technology used for operating system is determined, browser will be the instant on control screen of your computer. Toolbars are the control, addressbar launches the information gathering. Taskbar shows what is available and in use(dashboard).

The workspace in borders can be shared or subject to privacy of secured data transmission. Wifi can sharedata among workgroup(virtual private network).

The architecture of data channels are subject to design of your computer by your social group definition.

Its sure a different ball game now.
