I love reading stuff like "After i updated this with this patch, and reinstalled this driver 8 times, then installed twelve more patches, installed 4 Microsoft updates, did a tap dance, reinstalled that driver, formatted three times, prayed to God, reinstalled seven programs five times, waited for a northwest wind, farted in a southern direction, XP finally ran."
XP is a overrated sh*tbox that is trying to do what MAC OS10 did over a year ago and is failing. Wait for XP SE which is coming out early 2003. All of the patches will be included and it won't be a BETA OS like XP.
Everybody tried to knock Windows ME and let me tell you, i use ME, and it runs everything and never crashes on me. F**k Windows XP. They should name it XPOS, you can figure that out.
And yes, i have tried XP out on a few machines and all of them had problems in way or another. I can give a crap about fading menus and new colors.
i have tried win95, win 98, win 98se, win me, win 2000, and win xp and i liked win 2000 the best for sure!
Straight up man! I totally agree. I hate XP, but as I have said before, I just don't feel like troubleshooting my network everytime something goes wrong. I have to do this with enough friends and families computers. XP, all I have to do is just re-run the network wizard. Actually, what I may do is change this computer to Win2k whenever I get my next video card and leave dad's computer with XP as well as the server. I don't use a hub, so I use my server as a network bridge/router, but Win2k doesn't have this feature and I couldn't figure it out under Win2k Server.
BaloneyFlops, yeah I know what you're talking about. Sorry for all of the arguing!
ThreeOnTheTree, hehe yeah I know exactly what you are talking about with the gunpowder, lol
lol i went to windows xp to win2k cause i was bored one day lol
well in win2k, i ran cs at 800x600 with a 2xfsaa on and great frames. but i couldnt score any higher then 2400 in 3dmark 2001 which was very low.
well with xp and after trying many drivers and tweaks i hit 2986 so i was right happy cause my score was higher then my buds and his geforce2 gts
but then i try cs again and mohaa and my frames suck compaired wut they used to me.. plus i cant disable v-sync so i had to force the refresh rate at 85hz
well im about to try new drivers and this mouse thing is still killing me!!!
lol its smooth, just when i flick it it doesnt move and spazes out.
