When I got Windows 7, my simmies won't run as well.
There are some Win7 work-arounds for Sims2. I've never played it, so I have no idea how well they work. But I do know they exist.

^^ I have Windows 8 which is tolerable if you get a start menu replacement. There's some free ones but I use Start8 from Stardock which for $5 makes my experience much more pleasant. Basically I never see the tiles and just stick to the desktop underneath.
That seems like a total conceptual fail. A person shouldn't have to buy third-party proprietary software just to get-back some basic functionality.

I switched to Windows 95 on day one just because I always wanted long filenames lol.
I still use truncated filenames for a lot stuff.

Okay, kiddies, I bought my first computer, a Tandy 2000, in 1983. I remember using Word 4.2, Lotus 1-2-3, and some dial-up bbs.
My parents bought me one for my fourth birthday, which would have been 85. Really, I think my dad just wanted one for himself.

It was used and didn't last very long. So we got and one of the IBM 8086s not long after. I was pretty well-versed in DOS by the time I was eight.

Even Slackware 2.1 offered you more at the time as far as Internet is concerned. Microsoft did not have a clue that the Internet was a thing.
Suffice it to say, Pat Volkerding won the interwebz.
