are you [-peep-] kiddin me, the xp interface is damn gay / annoying! seriously. i'm stickin with win2000 until win2003 pro comes out for home use. plus win2000 is easier to network than xp, plus xp you have to register and can't use more than once which mean you have to pay if you wan tto put it on another comp. it's alltogether gay. plus it's not compatible with older programs / games. stick with win2000 man.
You can set XP to look like win2k very very easily. I have mine set to look like bluecurve from redhat right now... Simple.
Have you seen the gui for win 2k3 yet?
You have to pay if you want to install 2k on more than one system too you know... If you are willing to break that part of the licensing, then you could just as easily get the corp edition of XP and you don't have to activate...
It's overall quite a heterosexual OS IMO, not gay at all.
Some day I'll be rich and famous for inventing a device that allows you to stab people in the face over the internet.
lol i agree that it is heterosexual. i try to spend as litle time using xp as possible. how exactly do you set it to look like win2k? i've fooled around in settings a bit on my friend's comp and set some things back to i think it was "classical view" but i could never get it all the way.
I've got a 2GHz laptop with a ati7000 runnin 98 and it works great. My buddy has the same exact laptop except his runs 2.8 and has a 9000. He runs XP and it sucks!! He can't play old DOS games nor does the latest DX9 game work right as well. Enter the matrix locks up on XP if you try to change anything in the config. Ever try to play a game on the defalt setting? It sucks! Works fine on mine with 98!
Give me fuel, give me fire, give me that which I desire.
XP has serious problems on my rig, but I think it might be my motherboard. The problems sometimes occur under 98 as well, but get way worse if you install recent Via 4 in 1s. I think XP probably has a newer VIA driver than 98, which doesn't work properly with my (POS) motherboard. I'm pretty sure the motherboard has hardware problems too, though.
