Anyone running Duron on Win95 ?
I have known for years that AMD CPU 350 or above will cause a timing problem under Win95, and AMD has produced a fix for that, and for many years, we never had to go down the same route again, until now, a customer has some software that will only run under 95, but it will be under a Duron 1000, just wondering if anyone had actully ran a similar setup with the patch for a while and noticed any long term effects ?

i'ved used 95 on my athlon before, so it shouldn't be a problem much, but why 95??? i would highly suggest 98se.

Have to say, i use 95 on a duron machine at work, for much he same reason as your customer, have been for about a year with no probs.

Some software wont run under 98.

i also have software that wont run on anything faster than a 166 machine.

I got one runing, reason is the software compatibilty again.. Old 95-MS-DOS progz that only run on 95.

And no problems, runing it about 1/2 a year now.

It's a pitty to cripple a system by running Win95 on it for the sake of a single proggy. Will that software run in DOS mode? at least then you could use win98 as the OS and have a simple pif for that proggy so it runs in DOS mode. ********
