after me XP is a big mambo jombo. it looks great but it is full of crap. i have a AMD duron at 900 MHz, GeForce 2 400MX, with 160 RAM Quake 3 arena has about 90 fps under win 98 and under XP 45 fps(!!!!!). and a ot of games don't work under 98!!! under 98 i was listening to music, a film was playing in the background and i was copying a CD. all was fine. BUT under XP i couldnt listen to music and copy a CD at the same time!!!! im dissapointed!!
