Several. Windows 8.1 + Chrome (desktop and laptop), iOS + Safari and iOS + Tapatalk (iPhone).
I'm guessing that this is the one that produced dual question marks on the OS/browser thingie under "Likes Received"
Silly question really, but why do you ask @gungchang
Wang seemed proud of having the only Chromebook in Asia, and it sometimes tripped up the OS/browser info.
I was impressed that it detects the difference between Ubuntu (which shows as Linux) and Linux Mint.
I was curious what Stamp had used to deceive it.
I doubt I'm the only one to have noticed or wondered. I remember that the browser/OS thingie was quite popular when introduced.
And I still am! LOL
Window 10 + Firefox is my magic combo. ;-)
Nothing to deceive. The current version of the add-on simply doesn't recognise iOS 8.3 + Tapatalk.
AFAIK, it does recognise iOS 8.3 + Safari.
Today it works partially.
I'm sorry. I didn't mean to imply that you were literally trying to fool the gadget. I was just curious as to what it hadn't recognized.
I noticed that it betrays my whereabouts. Linux & Opera = home, Windows & Chrome = public internet, Windows & IE = RT Tablet, probably at work.
This might be useful to someone writing a screenplay for Elementary or CSI.
Upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10.
I did that on my work computer. 10 is better than 8.1, but I still miss XP.
May I suggest Zorin? It's a Linux distro that specializes in looking like another OS.
You may choose a start menu that looks like Windows XP or one that looks like Windows 7.
When I feel nostalgic, there's always Windows 98 in virtual box.
^Thanks for the suggestions.
The man misses XP, he gets XP.
I have acquired a lot of XP licenses over the years. I don't feel guilty about using the Dark Edition, especially since Windows no longer supports XP.
Anyway, here it is: XP in an Oracle Virtual Box.
It's running on Linux Mint Debian Betsy.
I have a Buffalo external hard drive. It's encrypted. It will not run with Linux. So, I open XP in a box and unlock the drive. When I drop out of Linux, the drive remains unlocked under Linux.
I have a similar setup on my antique PowerPC iMac, running XP in a box. On the desktop I have now, I can run Snow Leopard in native mode. This may be my way of letting my computer know who's boss.
