Windows 7: I Want to Keep Windows 7 Forever

One thing I absolutely loved about XP is that I can run it literally on 256 MB of RAM. LOL!

I have a project I may just do with a Windows XP laptop connected to multiple two-way radios via multiple USB sound cards in a good, reputable USB powered hub and I'll run multiple instances of a VOX sound recorder. The sound recorder I use now was meant for XP and doesn't work all that well with its features in Win 7. Unless I can find a decent comparable VOX sound recorder that'll take at least 10 inputs for Win 7.


I in fact run XP SP3 right now on a netbook that is on 24/7 in the kitchen connected to an external mouse/ small wireless keyboard and monitor I call it the Kitchen Kiosk. It serves as a local only FTP server who's storage is a SD card which allows me to transfer data from my phone using the AndFTP App and my computers or data from computer to computer without the need for a USB stick or USB external HDD.

Has this netbook been infected with malware or got haxxed? NOPE! And you know why? Because it's a fallacy you need updates and the latest and the greatest all the time so long as you surf the Internet with common sense, scan ALL downloads at VirusTotal, and use the now free Sandboxie for your browser.

I could run Windows 3.1 run now and use some proxy so that the ancient web browser in there will work with modern TLS encrypted sites. I more than likely want get malware either.

If you want to roll Linux, then at least have a look at Qubes and see what it offers, read the hardware requirements and enjoy a more secure/private OS.

I'm about to install 10 in VMware Workstation Player and monitor the virtual machine's NIC with a network packet sniffer to see just what connections 10 makes out to the Internet. It could even be at the kernel level and I'll capture it. This is a prelude to how I'm rolling 10 when the new Flight Simulator comes out. I'll be using a combination of Pfsense firewall in a nettop and a plunder bug inline with my computer and router to monitor what is going on behind the scenes and stop anything at the CIDR or ASN level if need be.

Xp is an ok OS a little primitive for my tastes but good for games that won't work on windows 7. And about those Crapintoshs... no way. not ever. the new CrapBooks just fall apart and the only reason you should buy one is if you like the OS (and even then...you would be better off to make a hackintosh (which is my current project-making a hackbook for testing purposes and hey if anyone knows where to get a MacOS ISO please post that here

Hey Dog, that might just be against forum rules, depending on just where that OS is hiding.


But, have you tried doing a web search for it? (like Fox Mulder would say, "The Truth is out there".)

Im not so sure about that - my MacBook Air runs Windows absolutely flawlessly from Bootcamp.

This sounds more likely the way I will go by keeping my Windows 7.
I'm not sure about VMware nor dual booting into Linux.

I like the idea about Sandboxie and VirusTotal.
