@ glennmcc

(OT) W8/W10 (was XP PAE fix)

Fortuantelly I needed to use this NTB only for one outdoor test. Normally I keep WXP on my workstation :)

> Every person I have spoken with whom has W8 HATES it.

One coleague use W8.1 on his notebook and he doesn't complain but I don't know about much other happy users (some who use W8 just bnecause they bought a new computer with it and they don't want to mess with downgrade that can be pretty tricky on some notebooks)

> In my testing of the preview release of W10... it is just as bad as W8
> The only thing really different is that the 'start menu' is back again.

Startmenu can be added by 3rd party SW and maybe it has more features than native startmenu but it can be more stable. What's your opinion compared to 3rd party starts?

> Other than that... it might as well be labeled as W8.2

Yes, it should be Win9 but 9 was a bad number so they skip to 10 but afaik it will be suplied to win 8.x user as free update.

Have heard of them but never tried them so can't really comment.

@ glennmcc

(OT) WinXP updates continues!

I just read on MSFN that MS releases a security DVD ISO image that silently contains also updates for XP Embedded 2009 that shoul be appliable on XP SP3
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=46363
I just downloaded and unpacked the ISO. it's sorted in tree:
KBnumber\OS\Language\package.exe
E.g. I found this: WindowsXP-KB3030398-x86-Embedded-CSY.exe
Also some patches (drivers) for Win2003 server should be possible to use.
If setup failed with version check, it can be simply extracted by /x option and copy files manually.

QuickView 2.61

After some time Wolfgang released a new version of his great videoplayer QuickPlayer.
It is a small bugfix release only, but it is nice that this amazing program is not forgotten by it's author.
