    VM, I use free VMWare Player and have couple of Linux distros always installed and also use it for testing other OSs including some W10 builds.

    Hi folks
    What are "Sets"

    I know the mathematical / Engineering expression but haven't a clue with the problem of "Sets" on the latest release.

    Anyone care to explain.

    As far as VM's are concerned it's usually possible to create "Linked clones" or even full snapshots on any virtualisation platform so I'm confused here.

    Cheers

    Hi there

    thanks

    Could be a good idea -- although IMO not at the expense of removing menus from some complex applications.

    Article mentions Windows 3 -- here's a VM running Windows 3.11 !!!!

    Call me an "Old Geezer" but I really don't want my computer running everything as if it were a large mobile phone (especially when you have some decent size monitors too).

    (OT But I really hate it on news programs when they show mobile footage in portrait mode - so on a large screen you just see a tiny sliver of picture on a large otherwise bare screen !!! -- all they have to do is rotate to landscape mode with a bit of "up-rezzing" and you'd get a decent picture again !!).

    Cheers

    :) I remember Windows 3.11...Program Manager, looks like a desktop. But very functional. Tabs are very useful and so is Task View showing a Timeline of past actions. Still in development, but so far quite good. Cheers

    I actually had an original ibm xt from the very first batch that entered UK (all bought by government)

    Hi folks

    drifting off topic - but you probably could make it run some form of Windows XP / 7 maybe even W10 - remember it was the machine that was the precursor to OS/2 which actually was a decent OS and could have been "Windows" if Ms and IBM hadn't had their little spat as it was a decent multi-user, multi-tasking OS with decent networking built from the OFF -- alas we know what happened -- IBM wasn't in interested in home users and Ms took over that area of computing. IBM these days is simply a service company while Ms is still one of the biggest companies in the world with hundreds of thousands of people all over the world daily using its products.

    That XT machine though might have been able to run something like Windows 286 if you could manipulate the RAM enough with slow floppy discs !!! which I believe did have some virtualistion possibilities in it -- although getting a 32 bit OS (XP / Win 7 etc) or even a 16 bit OS to run on an 8 bit stack would take a bit of doing -- not impossible as it's possible to run a 64 BIT Virtual OS on a 32 bit machine. I'm sure there must be somebody mad enough to try and attempt it though.

    If you did get it working though it would probably run as slow as a one legged dog on a perfectly smooth icepond. !!!! The amount of execution interrupts and xfer coding to replicate non existent CPU archtecture is not a trivial task .

    However look what NASA Engineers did with computers aboard the Voyager spacecraft - and they are still working from the very edge of the solar system. Nothing is totally impossible when it comes to software.

    Cheers
