[ProgSoc] Win 3.x + Netware *and* powertoys
To answer the two things:
When I arrived at Nursing, it was exclusively Win3x on a NetWare 3.12
server. And it was amazingly hopelessly slow. I've been told it's got to
do with running both Netscape and Windows from a server. Whether that's
true or not... it's always been horribly slow no matter what the PC is.
As for PowerToys, they can modify the way Windows works. Although if
we're using Windows 9x I imagine they'll consider TweakUI to hide disk
drives... I know I am in my lab.
The only problem I'm having with security is the ability to bypass the
Win95 startup thingy by hitting either F5 or F8 ... if you do that, you
can fuck up the PCs if you want to... anyone got any ideas?
Also, it is just one more thing that the network admins have to test,
install and configure. I think they'll have enough on their plate. I can
suggest it, of course, but I don't expect that they'll be interested.
