View Full Version : Windows 2002

Anyone heard about the next Win release.

I heard next spring.

Win 2002 is the next version, up from 98 without XP clutter.

Do not know why it would be called Win 2002 in the year 2003???

But I heard that B. Gates made a news release about it.

Have not heard of a new standard-user windows yet, but if they did it would be based of 2k/xp they would not take a backwards step now.

You may just find that it will be a basic "Lite" version of XP that will depend a lot on M$'s .NET framework (designed with this in mind) or 3rd party programs to be an effective os. ;)

What I heard is it would be basic like 98 and the bells and whisles in 2000 & Xp are add on options.

I still say: GO WITH DOS :hammer:

10-14-2002, 04:28 PM
This is M$'s answer for the recent Anti Trust case and it's concessions to it but I wouldn't be surprised if 3rd party software firms are still treated just the same though and have a hard time being fully compatable so ppl will be forced to pay for .NET services. :(

Ya I still do whatever I can in Dos or Linux.

But so much is made for Windows only!

Won't this be the OS with the infamous Palladium feature built in? :thumbs do

10-14-2002, 11:27 PM
Most likely. :(

I know ya'll are getting tired of my questions...but here is another one.

Palladium feature????

ANother one of microsoft's evil plan of taking over the world. I have a deep respect for microsoft. With all the **** they go through with legal issues and stuff. But this is turning me away. Its turning alot of people away. THe palladium feature will give microsoft the ability to basically "own" your PC. ANything that is not permitted that you do not legally own such as MP3's and all of the kind of things they can delete. They also got Intel and AMD to work together to integrate this new feature in the new upcommin processors.

Which is why I'm hoping that this new Linux consortium that's streamlining the whole installation of Linux oses and apps into something as easy as Windows sure hurries up with it. :devil:

Actually Red Hat is pretty easy to use now...it's been windowized a lot and several of the die hard Linux users think it's lost it's roots but many main stream corporations are moving to it.

I played a bit with Slackware, took me three months to get the system configured and running but it was pretty cool once it was running.

I had to dismantle the system to build a computer for work work so I don't have Linux installed any more. If you liked the old DOS days you will love Linux. It's pretty powerful at the command line and the GUI's they have look good.

Sorry but DOS was never one of my high points, I just know enough of that to keep me out of trouble and a big thick book for the rest. ;)

Lycoris is closer to my likin' though atm. :)

bah fdisk and format, the best 2 comands every :D

10-16-2002, 03:55 PM
If not for fdisk and format there would be no windows!


10-17-2002, 09:33 AM
well at least 9x

10-17-2002, 02:29 PM
Correct me if I'm wrong. Doesn't almost all if not all operating systems use fdish and/or format to perpair their hard dirves.

I know hard dish and other disk makers use Dos format (fast and clean) to perpair their products for market.

Win XP/2000 and others might hide it operation within their systems.

I think Mac uses a different trwist on their format but still a spin off of the Dos format.

Dos certenly has big limiatation, but it's fast and clean with low equipment resorce use.

Anyway I'll give a toast to Dos. :cheers:

10-17-2002, 02:51 PM
Yes they all use it. Some use it to different variants and styles like you had said. But they all use it one way or another. This is of course only if the disk did get formatted. Cause you can simply reinstall the OS.

10-17-2002, 03:01 PM
you could use gdisk instead?

But why???:confused:

10-17-2002, 03:03 PM
lol gdisk?

10-18-2002, 09:38 AM
symantec/nortons version of fdisk

10-18-2002, 03:30 PM
symantec/nortons utilities is petty good stuf. Ya I think they all use format/fdisk or somthing built off of it.

So Dos Lives On.

The only one I like is Ghost

10-19-2002, 04:31 PM
Don't like SystemWorks' One Button for dummies?

:D :confused: :D

Hate, HATE Norton anti virus!
But we have to use it at work

10-19-2002, 06:36 PM
why do you hate NAV?

10-19-2002, 11:15 PM
To many reasons to say, it's just a generally crap program and messes around with your sytem more than it should

10-20-2002, 01:43 AM
I usually disable alot of the settings. The only thing that is running in the background for nav is my email. Other then that I have a virus scan set up to scan my drives twice a week. So I got no problem with it.
