Re: Apple is getting off Intel CPU’s ?

in Milliways
Yes, the dynamic core is the big hurdle and a lot of security flags it raises in Apple's security If they manage to overcome this, and fix the issues Windows 98 has with the dynamic core, I can only imagine how good Windows 98 on Dosbox-x will be. Also need (even the intel version needs) faster …

Re: Windows 95/98 emulation/VM options?

3D acceleration may be possible, MAYBE, in two scenarios: DosBox-X with glide passthrough; QEMU 3Dfx with glide passthrough. In these two, you need glide support on your host machine AFAIK. Another third scenario is VMware with Windows XP. I have a XP vm with Direct3D support

Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

ATI was da best in the world up until Mach32. After that, they F-ed themselves. Voodoo series, except the very first one, is overrated. Nvidia is nothing but a copycat. DOSBox is godsend. Absolutely. Please don't hit me. You asked. I delivered. For these points I'll give you a round of applause.

Re: Is anyone excited for Big Navi?

Yikes. Not good. I prefer low power, more power efficient stuff. They don’t have something with less power or more efficient? They're quite literally only showing the high end for now.

Re: What modern activity did you get up to today?

I thought that it could be a decent modern activity anecdote. Well... Yesterday at work (more like home office), I was asked to update our Moodle theme from v3.8 to v3.10 I did, but not without some big issues and pitfalls. One of them was that Moodle changed the way they did the CSS for the ATTO …

I haven’t needed a floppy disk since 20 years ago. Last time I took them was for a photo on instagram months ago to show a Windows 3.1 install on VMware Fusion. All my old floppy disks are in a big box full of dust.

Re: iPad Windows Alternative ?

in Milliways
Also transferring files to apps in the iPad doesn't seem to be as well implemented as it could be, you are almost forced to use iTunes and iCloud for simplest of tasks. I use AirDrop to transfer files between my iPad, Mac and iPhone. No cables, no iTunes, no iCloud. I have OneDrive too working …

@Caluser2000: Good luck using third party non-certified car parts in your car. It will be fully your fault if the car decides to stop in the middle of a road, not BMW or Mercedes fault. However I do agree that if a computer fails while in the warranty period, it has to be serviced or replaced free …
