Re: Socket 7 - Intel Ultimate

Great build, except for that Voodoo 1, which is a severe bottleneck for the Tillamook, even more so when overclocked. :) I would save the Voodoo 1 for a Pentium MMX 166 build or something like that, and go with a Voodoo 2 (or even a Voodoo 3) for this one.

Re: Old games that had CD Audio tracks?

in DOS
StoneKeep I think those two tracks are meant as a bonus. They are not used during gameplay as Stonekeep uses FM Synth / General MIDI for its music. On topic, I think a clearer distinction needs to be made between the following: 1) This game uses CD audio tracks for music during gameplay 2) This …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

I really don't understand people who avoid going from Windows 7 to Windows 10 over UI differences. With a few minutes of work it'll be functionally identical. I don't think UI changes are the primary issue of the majority of people who refused to upgrade to Windows 10. For me, it was mostly privacy …

Re: Leak of Windows 11

I misread this title as "Leak of Windows 3.11". On topic, I never upgraded from Windows 7, so I'll pass on this too. Doing just fine using linux for daily tasks and consoles for "modern" gaming.
