Windows XP Delta Edition is a modification of Windows XP which aims to recreate the Windows XP Beta 2 aesthetic and bring back lost features, functions, and programs from previous versions of Windows, along with prerelease versions of Windows XP.
I like these community releases for Windows XP. While I never really liked XP when it was current, and while you really shouldn’t be using XP in any serious capacity today, it can be a ton of fun to try and see how far you can get in the modern world with XP on old hardware or in a VM.
Windows XP was in my opinion the first Windows that could be used as a daily driver and not to fall apart when using it. Windows 7 could be considered as an upgrade in regards to visuals. Everything else was a rather big meh. And it all went downhill after Windows 7. Considering the position Windows has on the market and considering all the resources they have. One does wonder on why are they so bad at it. Likely they follow the idea if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it. And then they go ahead and apply some “fixes” anyway. The results obviously can’t be good.
