Yes, I hope so, too.

I hadn't noticed the recent activity, but see it now that you mention it. Not sure what to make of that, but the lack of contact info and no option to send a direct message confirms the "not a member" status.

Dude has a new account. Who do you think is keeping Dudes "How many tabs do you have open" thread alive? LOL
He mentions it in there somewhere when I said something about missing Dude. He replied with his new name and let me in on it. I think that's the thread he admitted it.

Windows 10, 7, 98 SE and XP. In that order.
Windows XP last, huh? I'd probably say, for me, Windows XP, Windows 2000 Pro, Windows 7, Windows 10, Windows 98 SE. That order may change with progression of Windows 10, but out of all of those systems, I used XP and 2000 longer.

I loved it! Very solid OS. Still had the look and feel of 98, but with all the functionality that Windows ME had promised to deliver but couldn't with enough reliability. Ran great on older systems built to run 95-98. Very impressive that Microsoft built such a solid OS without having to take years to patch it. I kept using it long after Windows XP came out, and the only reason why I eventually switched to XP was the fact that I bought a DELL laptop with XP already installed.

Now, once I got used to running XP, I never looked back. That was another very solid OS, but most certainly it was solid because it was supported for so long. But anyway, I have always been a no-frills sort of guy, and honestly, if every OS following 98 looked and performed like 98, with whatever updated features needed to run the latest and greatest applications, I would be just fine with that. But that's just me. Some people need a new OS that totally has a brand new identity from the previous one, and if that's you, there's nothing wrong with that. But for me, I enjoyed Windows 2000, and if I thought I could still use that OS, I would still be using it. That and XP. Now, I use it more in a virtual machine for nostalgic reasons, but if those systems were still supported, I would be using them. It's kind of like how some people like certain model years of certain vehicles, it's just what they get used to and what is familiar with them. I never got used to Windows 8 enough to like it. I loathe that OS the same as I do ME. Windows 7 still kicks butt and I'm just fine with Windows 10 on a beefier system, but if I had my choice and 2000 was still a viable option, I would choose it over any other OS.

I liked my XP which I liked best,ME never gave me a problem,I still have my XP.
Had to go to Win 7 for compatibility with sites.After 4 years I do not understand it,I am basicly computer illiterate.
I noticed a file with 6 yards of logins or misc. sites which are garbage but do not know how to clean up?
I do not like control panel,XP was simple.
I have an old ISP login window which comes up but do not know how to remove.

Windows XP was the best. Its successor (Windows Vista) was a nightmare.
