Well, I finally have Windows XP up and running on one of my computers. SPAMActually, this is RC1 to be exact. SPAMI have to say that it's pretty stable. SPAMI've had it up and running for a week straight now and have used and abused it...hehehe. So far, I haven't had the need to restart it. SPAMI'd encourage people to give it a try if you can get your hands on a copy. I think build 2509 is out right now. Build 2505 is RC1. Anyhow, just thought I'd report on it.

From what I have read three changes to your hardware and you have to reregister or it ceases to function but here is some recomended reading I just found five minutes ago.

I saw that article on the register too. SPAMI swear, this is becoming such a fiasco...hehehe. SPAMThe way I see it, RC1 only lasts for 180 days. SPAMThe full version comes out in October (hopefully). SPAMSo, by the time RC1 runs out for me I should have a copy of the real thing by then. SPAMOtherwise, it's nothing that a hdd format can't cure.

I love XP.
It is very stable on my systems. It has great driver support, found every driver I needed, including net card, sound blaster live, Lexmark printer, everything!
I have it running on 5 PCs right now, have never got error or any problem.

while Xp is nice and all, and it only took MS 10 years to make a decent OS, they went about it all wrong. i DO NOT agree with the registering crap that they are doing. thats is just bull shit. its just another way for MS to try to take over the world and snuff out competition. they dont innovate, they dominate

Good idea to format and install OS every six months anyway...

Or, get a hacked version that will not expire...

I still want to see windows lite. SPAMJust a GUI. SPAMAt the absolute most include defrag and scandisk. SPAMI try to use other programs for file maintance and wish I could buy an OS that is an OS and nothing but an OS. SPAMI don't want all these nice features and all the ??? crap that comes along with it. SPAMThats why there are so many security holes. SPAMWhen you build a car that flys, floats, sings, does the dishes, and makes french fries there will be a few things left out. SPAMLike it's ability to do one thing and do it very well. SPAMBill Gates can take solitare and shove it up his @$$ for all I care. SPAMGimme an OS that's stable and nothing else. SPAMI'll decide what I want and how I want it to run. SPAMNot running through all the backdoors that some programmer but in 5 years ago in a forgotten design phase. SPAMNow there only to be exploited by hackers. SPAMNo thanks. SPAMLinux here I come (fatal exception what?????)
