Default Windows Xp.... :(

At first when I installed windows XP I thought that it was a well designed operating system. I am now starting to have my doubts. SPAMIt seems like every day my computer get less and less stable. SPAMI get those stupid error reporting things something ten times a day. SPAMI have not installed any new software since I initially set it up. SPAMI wonder where the stability length setting is in windows xp... SPAMHas anyone else eXPerienced problems like this with their installations of xp?

Default Re: Windows Xp.... :( ho ho ho

Hah !

M$ is dying, they are out of ideas SPAMAnybody remembers anything about WinME (a.k.a. Win98 3rd ED) ?? Well, I remember all the trouble it made and at the end we recommended to ppl to stick with Win98. I still recommend that.
If you wish to stick with M$ OS Win98 SE is the answer for desktop OS. W2000 is much better, but it's not for fun (I personally use both).

Now XP, well excuse me, that's another trick to sell the same crap with new shiny look. I also recommend you ppl to check this article >> SPAM

So you want to try something new ? That's not XP for sure ...

Chef,

I lean pretty much the same way you do. I am not at all impressed with XP and recommend either 98SE or 2000 myself.

I don't play much so I use 2000 more than 98 but when "fixing" issues with clientelle PC's I formost install 98SE.

Checked out your site. Looking good, could I persuade you to check out http://www.webdevnet.com ?

Keefe,

I think XP in general is a weak "OK" and that you'll be better off stepping back to an older ver. Most my customers with XP call me often for this and that and basically are not happy with it.

To have such instability and such without "doing anything" doesn't work for me. I have only sold one copy of XP and I cringed while doing it SPAM

Well, I also think WinME was pretty much a waste of time and offers no real computing experience or advantage. Also think it will be an orphan OS. Not many copies were actually sold over the counter and most out there were shipped as such, which is what I have. I have not seen a single advantage over 98 in the year I've had it.
Thought about upgrading to XP but too many complaints/problems SPAMkeep surfacing on it and decided to wait awhile longer.
Still a lot of non-available drivers for various devices. But I sure would like to see MS have some competition. Real competition.

Well I for one love XP SPAM:P

Ive had it installed since the day after it was released and have had no problems at all....ah well.

Then again im using XP Pro.....maby the Home edition is crap....I dunno....all I know is that Ive always loved 2K, and XP (IMHO) is just a pretty 2K with some extra features.

Not exactly 2K.
XP is wasn't built on 'NT technology' and it's more like 98 with some extra creapy features (and huge secutiry holes
Win2000 is still the best from micro, cause NT OS was always better then Win OS.
They called it XP, cause they were out of names after ME and still had to flood market with sth ':[+]

Xp has nothn to do with W2K

Actually, Windows XP was built off of the winnt kernal, so therefore it has a lot to do with it. SPAMBasically, windows xp is a glorified win 2k with a whole lots of changes.
