What you always wanted to know...XP Minimal-Requirement-Test

Post by DonPedro »

There is rumor that some crazy lunatics meet at k6plus.com to discuss their vintage systems and spent their time on searching for the tweak that makes them happy like goofy. some say this is a waste of time .....

well, may I present to you some other guys who honor those who give their time on equally important things in life and award them with "The golden Sandclock Award For Extreme Waste of time."

for those who like old pc-hardware it is really worth a read, trust me! ;)

There was one more thing I wish they'd tried. It wouldn't install XP on the 486 motherboard with a 486 installed, but what if you install it on the Pentium Overdrive, then swap the 486 back in?
