Oops, I did the same. I think I would choose 98SE now. That is my "older" OS by preference. With the right tricks, and some software to tweak the system, got 98 to run newer software.

You actually prefer Windows 98? I agree that was the best version of that generation of Windows. What followed was Windows ME, which was just terrible.
But, I think that Windows 2000 and XP are hugely more stable.

Besides I wonder if you can even get video and printer drivers for recent hardware on Win 95/98 anymore.

I'm not using it right now, but I prefer it as the lowest system I could use. To use newer software there is a software called KernelEx, it lets you run some NT programs in 9x/Me, it works very well. I don't think it will work with drivers.

No, it wouldn't; kernel-mode stuff is way to different to be able to interop properly.

User-mode stuff can be made to work by adding a translation layer, as you've seen.

Vista, XP and several different Linux versions now.

I run Linux on all my things these days. I have a Windows 7 VM sitting around somewhere, but I can't remember the last time I fired it up. That VM is the last bit of non-Linux on any of my computers.

I've been dropping in from time to time over the years, checking to see if the Linux version of LB5 has been released. I use Python (with a bit of shell) mostly for my programming needs these days, but long for a day when I can return to my first programming language from wayyyy back in 10th grade. smiley Thinking back, it's hard to believe it's been *twelve* years since I got into LB and programming!

LB runs very happily under Linux/Wine, so why not 'return to LB' right now! Very few problems....
I hardly ever fire up my old w95 machine. And like you tend to use Python etc but always seem to come back to LB- nothing beats it for knocking together a decent GUi and some real coding, not just installing yet another Python library of new functions...

I really enjoy Python and having Python libraries is very nice as it prevents me from having to re-invent the wheel. Using a .dll in your LB program to expand functionality is roughly the equivalent, I would say. There are also easy ways to bang out a GUI for Python for QT and GTK. I am not saying Python is better, just that it has filled my need for a programming language that runs natively on my operating of choice (bonus points for Python being open source).

Instead of running a bunch of windows software under WINE on my Linux machines, I prefer to either wait for a native port of my favorite windows software or I find suitable alternatives. As far as LB goes, I've been using Python as a suitable alternative until one of my favorite pieces of windows software, LB, is available on Linux.

Once LB has a native Linux version, I'm sure I will be using LB for some things and I'm sure I'll be using Python for some things. Until that day comes, I'm happy using an alternative. Good things come to those that wait and LB is a very good thing. smiley

Hi

I use it with Win 10 and have no issues. Dual boot with Linux Mint and would like to use LB with it. Any ideas on how I would go about this?
