absolutely, I can hit control+esc on my own, thank you very much.
honestly i liked 97! And ms still had powerstation fortran before they sold them to compaq, then hp sold them to intel..
that was part of vista, and server 2008 when they declared automated testing was bettet. So no we suffer, because apparently all the hard work that went into 2003 wasnt worth it.
2012 is a joke of a server.
Its become a part of life now.
and just because many things in the west that are OK or even normal are viewed as being criminal in certain countries is the fault. Oh what a web of lies we must tell ourselves so we can sleep at night knowing our product kills innocents.
The OS/2 nuns was without a doubt the dumbest thing in advertising. But the thing was, Windows NT 4.0 had shipped by the time OS/2 4.0 came out, and Win32 was finally gaining traction thanks to Windows 95. OS/2's Windows 3.1+Win32s finally wasn't good enough.
But in retrospect IBM fucked OS/2 up beyond recognition with their SAA bullshit that made PM backwards from the way everything else worked, and how they did their best to block MS from putting Windows on top of OS/2, not to mention insisting on targeting the 80286 from the getgo, when Windows/386 was a thing back in 1987!
Instead of waiting for Windows 95 on the desktop we could have had Windows on OS/2 32bit in the late 80's. IBM held us all back, and finally when MS jumped off the bear, they ended up taking too long to move off DOS + Windows. Oh well, at least they got the VMS team and gave us NT. OS/2 was too much of a MS-DOS thing with it's out of control config.sys.
Compared to the 80286, the 386 was a godsend. 1GB of 64KB segments?! What were they thinking?????
I hope you virtualize this system... I've had a few gigs rescuing dead Netware machines, and it's never pretty trying to recover data, but migrations on the otherhand are a breeze!
Check out running Netware in vmware, put it on ESXi, get it on real hardware from this decade... do it while you have access to the working machine, otherwise things like your server.exe will be difficult to recover.. Not to mention you clearly have some server program on top of netware (god help you), recoving things like Oracle on Netware in raw partitions will be beyond a nightmare.
This is what you need.
I've used this on some ancient xbase program that programmed 8085 controllers, and I got the xbase part of it running in no time. I ended up using dosbox and some batch files to run the 8085 assembler, and it's basically all runnable on Win64 now.
yeah, my F5 load balancers. Oh and VMWare since they decided that was the way to go.
don't forget ACS! And I have some stupid Avocent OOB thing that of course requires JAVA.
Network people who are scared of windows and force this java crapfest are so damned 1997 annoying. Then there are the Oracle heads. Just wish this crap would finally die.
another boutique language that won't be here in five years.
if it wasnt for Minecraft, no end user would be left with java.
And in the office world, all the scared of MS tards led us down the java path. Thanks guys!
I was thinking of the Mariana islands as a 'close enough' for me stop-gap. Crap. There must be some other Micronesian territory left that didn't get suckered into independence.
