    What is wrong with microsoft ,
    cant they write code properly? look at all the up dates XP has had since it was made avalable to the public.

    i think MR Gates should re name his company to the "Patch Co"
    and use the slogan "how many patches do you want to day"
    and not "where do you want to go today"

    i think iam goign to ditch microsoft.... and use Linux @ least that O/S is better and way more secure.

    anyone here agree with me?

    surge have to agree but the average joe probably could not load any flavor of linux...and you gotta love the cmd are you sure you want to del # next thing you know the whole thing is gone...I say give it a few more yrs to make it as easy and compatible with M$ and you betcha I'm converting...and best of all my kids love the games on redhat:D just need to convince my wife to convert....diehard windows fan.its easy and she knows how to use it...:mad:

    Linux has tons and tons of patches too. Modern operating systems are so complex that it would be impossible to release something stable. I think XP is the most stable windows I have used since 98SE. Just my opinion... I had both linux linux and windows installed until a week ago when I got my new system.. I'm struggling to just get windows working on it right now... if I find out its a windows problem I'll reverse my current viewpoint and go back to damning microsoft :)

    i know Roshambo

    but when linux gets updated its mainly the Kernal thats updated

    xp is the only damn windows os that i know to have so many updates come out so often , i never had this trouble with 98,

    i know XP is stable and more stable than 98, ive never had a crash with XP *fingers crosed* yet, but its gettin to be so long winded when i have re installed xp there is way to many updates to download, and i dont know where to get them all so i can put them on CD ,

    I cant wate until next week when i get DSL at least the updates will be quicker.
