Also, if you want a stupid socket 7, just get a Winchip. :D


Well... I would like to give it some credit... At least the earliest winchip can run Windows 7 but the earliest 6x86 couldn't... :sweatdrop:

A 200MHz WinChip running Windows 7? I never would've thought that was possible considering the Windows XP setup CD treats most WinChips as 486s so it refuses to install (at least back when I tested it on PCem a long time ago). Is it possible that the WinChip suffers from the same CPUID bug as the 6x86?
