Windows If you had asked me, I would have guessed that this wouldn't be possible. One intrepid OS explorer has made a video wherein he not only installs every version of Windows since 1985's Windows 1.0, but proceeds to upgrade from one to another. The video, titled Chain of Fools: an Exploration of Windows upgrade procedures, shows how DOS and Windows are installed in a VMWare VM, and how a couple of DOS games were installed to see how newer versions of Windows handle backward compatibility. Similarly, various customizations were made to the Windows preferences to see how they survived the upgrades. Video embedded after the break.

I have Haiku installed and am using it. I download YouTube videos using the "youtube-dl" script.

As for playing it, the excellent "MediaPlayer" Haiku application will play almost anything.

...on a mildly unrelated note, it seems like as soon as YouTube came out, people don't want to watch a video unless it's streaming. What's up with that? People download and view photos and people download and listen to MP3 files. Is downloading and watching a video too old fashioned or something?
