"I am Windows 98..."  
"So, please do not shoot me? - Y/N"

I just managed to start my old laptop after three attempts! Go me!

It's from 1999 (survived the OMG!2000!NO! thing) and is still running on Windows 98. Okay, so I had to run the Safe Mode but it's actually responding to me!

I click on "Desktop" and "My Pictures" pops up... Well, that's just... so wrong.

But we're getting there. Somehow. *nods*

Just need to figure out which folder is which. Honestly, if they wanted to play peek-a-boo, they could have asked. Oh, wait, it's Windows 98...

"I'm feeling so old and outdated."

My old laptop is also on Win 98. I don't use it anymore since it tells me most of the time that there isn't any OS. But he served me well when I wrote my thesis (and that's what I bought it for) so he can rest in peace now.
My pc runs on Win Me. I have no problem with it, though there are more and more programs that don't run on it... :-\

Yeah, somehow Win 98 tends to forget what software/hardware it got...

Our office uses Win 2000. I'm trying to push my folks to get at least a Win XP. Would make it way easier.

*hugs* That sounds icky!

Yep. Sigh. But I'm glad that Win Me remembers its software.

Mys isters computer which was our first still runs on windows 95. The windows 98 version we had bit the dust when it crashed and we had to put the old version back on. :p

It still works to. LOL *feels ancient to*

Woah! That's really ancient... but awesome! ^^

Ja, nicht? *grins*

Neenee! Ich hab's auch nur so mal ausprobiert und war echt geschockt, dass es noch geht ^^ Aber benutzen? Nope. Zu laaaaangsam und old school. Ich bleib bei meinem XP XD
Billbilly_red_ocean on July 1st, 2007 08:32 pm (UTC)
Aber ist Old School nicht wieder IN?! *lach*
Zu langsam geht ja so gar nicht! *shakes head* Nope, No, no way.

My pc ran on Windows 98 until we reformatted the drive and put in Windows ME. Bad mistake. Now half the LJ's I used to read freeze the damn thing.

*sigh* My inheritance is going towards a new computer very soon.

Eeek. That's really icky! Especially with LJ.

*hugs* I'm sorry to hear that, hon.

O_O you're lucky I ditched the hypnotizing owl. 'Cause that's totally a call for the owl. Win freakin' 98? I'm floored how does it works still? Is it a timelord-y Win 98?
Mercy: [Emoticon] busted!mercscilla on July 1st, 2007 09:30 pm (UTC)
Hiro makes up for teh owl! Much love!

Yup, freakin' Win 98. My best guess: The Doctor snagged it when the TARDIS stopped for tea and now it's like the timlord-iest laptop EVER!
