    Just thought that I would include some screen shots.

    Personally I think it looks great, and as ever change is good. You will get used to it if you dont like It I think.

    ME wasn't an upgrade. It was more of a...service pack.

    well I look froward using any new OS of Microsoft. I've started with DOS, which was pretty basic, but it did a good job in its time. Than I was able to work with Win95, which was a huge improvement. Now I was able to do a lot more than I could do with DOS. Than there was Win98, another huge improvement in matter speed and stability, at least on my system. Newt will probably be Win2000, but I'll need to purchase some extra RAM before I'll be able to install it...

    I wish MS all the best for the development of Windows XP. The better it turns out to be, the better it is for me.

    I'm very skeptical of anything Microsoft makes these days. They have ulterior motives for everything they do. They renamed OLE to ActiveX. And for what? And now this .Net and XP. What in the world is that?

    The thing I really hate about MS is that with every product they make, they have to try and sidestep standard protocols just so they can kidnap it for their marketing purposes.



    JB007,
    Ever try Counter Strike? That thing's so addicting. Since getting it last week, I haven't been paying much attention to my website...

    Joe, You are right , people usually prefer an easy operating system rather than a hard-to-use OS like Linux. But we must remember that Windows NT series in general are good and stable operating systems. Maybe they are expansive but they do the work fast and easy. However, if you want to unleash the real power of your PC you must use a *nix operating system. Such as Linux and FreeBSD.

    Skeptical, Yes I've played Half-Life but when I had reached the surface I found that my copy was for evaluation only ( It came with my PC ) , then I've played the Opposing Force Demo and it was great !! I think I'm going to buy it ...

    XP looks like a kids toy! I really hope somebody out there comes out with a easy to install, or pre-installed GUI linux OS, with commonly used pre-installed software (email, web browser, text editor, games, ect). Id bet that 90% of Windows users dont even know they have a choice of what OS they can use. and if they knew they had a choice, 90% of the people would stick with Windows beacouse its simple to use. they dont care if it crashes atleast once a week, they dont care that it has all kinds of memory leaks. Its easy to use, so they use it... Sadly, 95% of all software, is made for teh windows OS, i really hope this changes in the near future. We need to educate the masses that they have a choice.

    If Dell & Other computer retailers started to offer computers with a GUI Linix distro pre installed with star office, for $200 cheaper then the same computer with XP and MS-Office, id bet that alot more people would make software for linux, and MS would have the NEED to make better software, a win-win situation for everyone.

    P.S. Im also against napster, i have only downloaded a handfull of songs, i already own the CD;s to all teh songs i have downloaded... Once napster comes a pay-per-use program, and the artists are getting paid there fair share, i may use it more often....

    Napster is not forcing users to download copyrighted music.

    here read my reply from a thread like this already:
    http://vbulletin.com/forum/showthread.php?threadid=8782

    And my reply to your last post is:
    How can you compair these unrealistic "images" to make a point?

    "do unto others as you would have them do unto you"

    Wow that quote just does nothing for me when it comes to music, come up with another quote that actually makes sence on this issue.

    Looks like you don't believe in capitalism. You think money is evil. Have you read up on Karl Marx's books? Sounds like you believe in socialism and not capitalism.

    If you want to argue, please use good sound arguments, and not stuff like "you know nothing about napster". Doing such only makes me think you can't win logistically, so you must resort to non-sensical insults.
