Updating windows 98 to second edition
Buried among it all was a box appropriately called Highspeed Networking for Dummies Kit.
It was the product of a partnership between Kensington and the for Dummies series publisher IDG (Wiley Publishing does the honors today).
My friend's call for tech help, like many I get from friends and relatives, was suitably vague.
Some tech support guy had told her that her PC needed something, "maybe a card and a cable. I honestly didn't know what she was trying to accomplish, but I agreed to stop by and look at the problematic system. The bad news was that the Cablevision tech must have taken one look at her eight- or nine-year-old Pentium III PC and run from the room screaming.
I personally would love to have a windows xp second edition.
I love the windows xp user interface, everything about it.
He might as well have been speaking Greek to my friend.
This 166-MHz Dell Latitude LM system sits in my basement and is wired via Ethernet cable to my router, so I can access its admin screen.It was even (for reasons I'm still not clear on) hooked up via USB to her PC.Yet when the tech discovered that her system lacked an Ethernet port, he quickly told her to go out and buy a card and Ethernet cable, install them, and then she should be able to get online.The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. With all of the talk about Windows XP versus Vista, I sometimes forget how many people are still running older versions of Microsoft's venerable operating system.
I love it for all of these reasons, plus i love how resource friendly it is and how simple it is to use.
