I love that old installer from 9x, XP.

XP looks so amazing and modern even now, compared to Windows 10. It looks like art, a painting. So cool.

You should see what they done with the start menu in latest Windows 10 updates. If you move your mouse over stuff in it, drawer menus pop-up SUPER annoying, I can't stand it!! :sick: :sick: :sick:

It kills me how disjointed even the UI can be. Under Settings -- Power & Sleep, you make changes and they're applied instantly, no 'apply' or 'save changes' button. Frankly, I find it annoying not to have the option to look over settings before applying them, but okay if you want to go that direction...



Well, let's look under Additional power settings and from there click on 'change plan settings'

It's even sadder when you realize these are the same settings....

and what about the disappearing scroll bar? There are so many things wrong with Windows 10 user interface, I think they are psychotic making it. It is completely insane.

I'm sure with all the political correctness and bullshit going on in modern American corps, it's likely 'software by committee'.

I wish I could find a video, but alas, a transcript will have to do.

Lexon Paradox

[ show mystery car hidden under a white sheet blowing from the breeze of an interior fan ]

Announcer: Can a single luxury car be both the most spacious and the most compact on the market? Lexon asks you to consider a paradox.

Female Voiceover: Paradox..

Announcer: Introducing the all-new Lexon Paradox. Smaller than the competition, yet bigger.

Female Voiceover: We are through the looking glass..
[ show two groups of Lexon engineers standing on opposite sides of the screen ]

Announcer: This remarkable automobile is the synthesis of the work of two teams of Lexon engineers. Team A was asked to decrease the size of Lexon’s most popular model.. while Team B searched for ways to make it bigger.

Announcer: While one team made Paradox the most expensive car in the world.. another made it the most affordable.

Announcer: One designed the Paradox to be an elegant, white luxury Sedan.

Female Voiceover: White Sedan..

Announcer: The others, a sporty red Coupe.

Female Voiceover: Red Coupe..

Announcer: One team gave it incredible stopping power.. the other gave it no brakes of any kind.

Announcer: One team was asked to give the Paradox four doors.. another designed it to have only two.. while still another gave it six doors.. and the final team, one gigantic all-purpose door.

Female Voiceover: One.. big.. door..

Announcer: And, while one team gave the Paradox dual airbags.. another designed it to shatter on impact, throwing passengers up to 300 yards.

Female Voiceover: Very, very dangerous..

Announcer: The new Paradox. The best car money can buy.

Female Voiceover: Or is it.. the worst?

Heh, nifty little 'trick' when installing XP, if you shut your computer off with the power button on the 'Who will use this computer?' screen, turn it back on you can skip creating user accounts and go straight in to the Administrator account.

It's crazy that these customizations are not by default part of Windows. So sad.
