  1. XP was codenamed 'Whistler' though, Longhorn was for Vista, eventually at least.
  2. Silly question, but would there be more alternative OSes for the X16?
  3. What if Commodore made Amiga portables and laptops before their bankruptcy, in a similar vein to their SX-64?
  4. Not sure if this is by default, I wonder if the SID chip is capable of perfectly (or at least very close to) replicating the distinct 4-bit triangle wave found in NES' 2a03
  5. And things get even worse as Russia starts an invasion on Ukraine, yet some people are still angry at David for a mistake that's repairable. Yeah, some people do need reality check.
  6. Perhaps 'Windows 98 Millennium Edition'.
  7. Your wish came true, Strider.
  8. I would honestly hesitate to remove real DOS mode, which has caused instabillity, as well as creating compatibility issues. I would also bring the Watercolor (or Watercolour; specifically the 2419 one) and Mallard/Sample Test Visual Style from Whistler. In addition, it would be nice to add the firewall, Activity Center, Fast Boot and the login screen from Neptune, add some notification system from PocketPC 2000, plus having quite a few of Plus! features (95, Kids and 98) built-in, finalising with adding Flight Simulator (moreover: Space and Train Simulators too), the entire Microsoft Entertainment Pack and perhaps an exclusive game for Windows ME as preincluded games for the OS. Security from Windows 2000 is also important, so I would make sure that would be added.
  9. What if Bill Gates put you and your development team at Microsoft at charge of Windows ME's development? Would you make sure not to rush Windows ME's development and keep adding new features that would lay the foundation of NT-based Windows XP? Or just give up with ME and keep developing NT-based Neptune by merging 9X and NT kernels, eventuality making an operating system very similar to XP?
  10. Mine would be similar, except that it would have a modern Intel Pentium processor instead (with an ARM and/or RISC-V coprocessor), plus an additional PSG capabilities for sound.
  11. 1. SID can already do pseudo-FM functions, due to the ring modulation and pass filters. 2. How would the hybrid YM2151/YM2610B-SID do in the market?
  12. Just wanna add: didn't BBC Micro support a second 6502 processor though?
  13. Just wanna add: didn't BBC Micro support a second 6502 processor though? (as an expansion option) EDIT: Oops, I accidentally published the same comment twice!
  14. Sorry for annoying you, but would the Yamaha's SID and the FM chips built upon it (YM2203-SID; YM2608-SID; YM2151-SID; YM2610(B)-SID or a hybrid YM2151/2610B-SID of the latter two) have any use in home computers, consoles, arcades, etc.? Would some of them even double the SID channels inside the FM chips for stereo?
