Curious why your using such an old OS for internet access?

I tried years ago to squeeze the life of Windows 2000 Professional SP4 further on an old Pentium 166Mhz with 128MB RAM and browsers dropping support for older than XP operating systems eventually meant that I had to move on from it because of security risks as well as websites with Flash and other content wouldnt display properly. I even thought maybe I could install Linux to it and use the old Pentium 166Mhz further for internet access, but the Linux distros with the latest browsers required more RAM than the Pentium 166Mhz could support.  :-\

XP is the earliest Windows machine I have connected to the Internet.

With a good amount of RAM and stuff like KernelEx you can get some reasonably recent Firefox versions running on Windows 98SE and 2000.

If I remember correctly, I was accessing Computerhope primarily through a Windows 2000 machine when I first joined the forum.
I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.
