Windows XP

Due to a lack of support by modern browser manufactures for older operating systems, combined with the push by the major Internet companies to restrict older browsers which do not support covert advertiser tracking, it is becoming difficult to use Win2k to explore the Internet. One solution is to surf using the abandonware WinXP, as this OS is still supported by several modern browsers. Just as with Win2k being able to dual boot with DOS, you can use the same technique to triple boot Win2k and DOS under WinXP.

The disadvantage of Installing WinXP is that WinXP is not "owned" by the end user, but rather "leased" by Microsoft (the end user must have a special renounceable code first registered with Microsoft before the software will function). So unless you have an old WinXP license available (such as from a WinXP installation on a scrapped PC), this solution will be unavailable. However if you do have a license, provided here is a copy of the Windows XP Operating System and all minimum necessary Official Microsoft functionality patches.
