Now THAT is good to hear. I've been holding off on getting a new laptop until 10 was out. News that the CBLoader doesn't have any issues on it like it did on 8 means I won't have to worry quite so much about eventually losing it due to equipment standards continuing to rise.

You don't have to wait. Windows 10 is a free upgrade for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1. If you see a good deal, go ahead and make the purchase then upgrade for free when Windows 10 is released.

Yeah, my laptop is a six-year old i5 machines... pretty solid for its age, but I'd rather update and transfer files BEFORE something catastrophic happens to it. Win8 though was an easy incentive to hold off though.

That said, based on reviews of Win10 and the fact that my laptop is still purring along for what I actually NEED it for (rather than what I'd like to have the option for) I think I'll hold off until about six months after Win10 so that most of the lingering bugs/security holes are plugged and the manufacturers have updated their specs to the actual requirements for Win10 and a lot of the programs I use will have worked out any potential compatibility bugs by then too.

One of the biggest issues Vista had was that it had much higher performance requirements than XP, so when people upgraded their XP systems it turned a smooth operating machine into one that limped along because the basic OS was eating too many resources. I bought a Vista machine about six months after it came out and never had any problems though because the system was actually built with enough processing and memory to handle Vista's load.

I don't know how Win10 compares to Win8 (or Win7) on the system resources side, but given that's never gone down (and I think even Win7 took slightly more than Vista) I think I'd much prefer a system which was built for Win10 than trying to buy a Win8 machine and hope its robust enough to handle it.

Right now I have WinXP emulated on my MacBook Pro and that has the offline CB installed and running like a charm.

I also have the CB installed on my Win7 laptop and it seems to work just fine there as well.

One of my best friends is running a Linux machine and has the CB working through some sort of emulation something or other.

I've been looking at the possibility of running the CB in a WINE install on my MacBook Pro as well. I'm not much of a "fiddler" and so the thought of going through and tweaking little "fiddly bits" here and there to get it to work doesn't sound appealing to me at all. But it does seem like the most likely way to get the CB to work native in Mac OS X. And since there seems to be a fairly robust community for WINE out there, I imagine that this could become a long term solution for me. It seems that a lot of the WINE users are keen on getting older Windows software to continue to function. So I'll see where this leads.

I am having a pain in the arse trying to make a custom weapon for some reason (I know I had made one in the past -- I made a custom superior Kopesh)
