Been playing with my Hiren emergency utility ISO to CD burn all of yesterday, it offers mainly a boot to MS DOS and mini XP, which we know is hot topic again because it's reached the end of support life cycle, but small OS and need for such things will continue to be a real factor, as is some sort of OS for older machines, and in business the need for OS or XP in this case, prompted Microsoft to work on some Industry solution to perhaps even expand XP support for some companies' licensing. I don't think a clear agenda for this has been provided yet... but let's hear your thoughts on micro OS use, and running on older gear?
Has anyone figured out how to get an audio driver working for miniXP, it keeps it's virtual space lean and mean by providing only minimal drivers. My tests included running Portable apps for Photoshop and VideoLAN aka VLC player. There's also Wimpy FLV and SoThink Player that you can just add to any file or desktop and start using. I tried to use XnView but it was missing a file I assume might be part of the full Windows install DLL library (Dynamic Link Library are common 'go to' subroutine programming files)
