I'm sorry Nekurakami, but many don't feel the same way you do. Many are already using Vista. Anyone who has actually USED it have returned positive results. Unlike the nix and mac fan boys, who just take any chance to bash another os just cause they don't like it. If you don't like it, that's fine. But you get no respect by stating false information. Just like on the system you claimed to have installed Vista on, a pc like that should have installed in 15-20 minutes. I would know, because I have a pc that has an amd x2 3800 and vista installs in 20 minutes.

Take your propaganda back to FSF and keep it there. No one wants to hear it.

You have obviously never installed Vista then, or installed a much more compact/crippled version. I wasn't using a superfast hard drive at the time, but even so, I can transfer 10-11GB to that drive in a lot less time than it took to install vista. It was Vista Ultimate 64 bit. 15-20 minutes is ridiculous. Oh and BTW, PLENTY of people who have used vista don't like it.

To make a comment like, "Anyone who has actually USED it have returned positive results." is not only a naive generalization, but absolutely false, as even one person using it and not liking is means that statement is wrong. I'm not interested in turning this discussion in to a flamewar or anything, but as far as false information goes, you really don't have a leg to stand on. I'll at least admit I have a bias.

I suggest that you only support Win 2K/XP/Vista for the time being. I'd like to see what fun you can do with DX10 or latest OpenGL.

Win 95/98/ME is dead. You have perfect PJ64 1.6 for those last 98SE flag wavers. So spare yourselves from the wasted effort of supporting those OS:es.

Linux on the other hand is so light and great for every one, be it older or newer system. Ubuntu is collecting users faster than Vista. So I'd suggest you put a lot of effor to Linux version. (Free hint: Make one quick)

Nekurakami, i don't have time to read everything now, but it's not that we like Vista, it's because Vista is very easy to support when we already support XP (the only reason Vista briefly didn't work was because jabo had a bug which Vista actually helped us to find! it appears to be stricter in some cases) and because PJ64 has always been a Windows emulator. porting to Linux would be a major task. it's possible but the less time spent on non-emulation coding the better at the moment imho.

i will go through these comments and tally up the results when i get time soon.

written by hey!!!!!! dont drop windows 2000
i know Windows 2000 is a buiseness OS but,
windows 2000 is much like xp and it is run on NT just like xp. i think you should drop support for the MSDOS operated systems though like 98,98se, and the worst ME(gag) >:( :( :(. last time i checked 98 wasnt supported by microsoft and im sure that me will be the next to go if microsoft didnt drop it already.if you drop any of them keep the NT systems but drop the MSDOS SYSTEMS,

Well, I currently have 2 Computers hooked up right now.

One computer is a Windows 2000 Machine and the other is a Vista Home Premium machine. My Windows 2000 Machine is hooked up to my TV and that is where all of my emulation runs from. As you can see here

I understand that screenshot looks like Vista, but its not... its really WIndows 2000 using a program called Aston Shell to make it look like vista.

Anyway, I would love continued support for this Operatoing system since I have already tryed installing XP on this system and it causes nothing but problems while playing heavy 3D games (Project 64 included) but I experence no such problems with Windows 2000.

Most computers that are running Windows 2000 and higher are most likly going to have the required system requirements to run the emulator. Where as Windows 95 and 98 where mostly used during the time of Processors being below 1.0GHz and when we were still using slow ass SD-RAM. Drop WIN95/98/ME and stick with Win2kPro, XP (all Editions) Vista (all editions)

I think you should support XP/Vista and 2000 not to sure cause it's not that one half of the world uses 2000. Now everyone uses XP. Making it compatible to 2000 could take more time to make the 1.7 release. ;D The only thing is that it has to run in 128mb RAM computers!
