"Windows 2000 is way better than Windows XP, because it is more stable." -- Funny, then why did Microsoft spend billions of dollars to produce it? Maybe you are doing something wrong. "Windows XP looks like a kiddie OS with that blue luna crap" -- Then you must never have used Windows XP, for if you have you would have seen one of the most simplist features, themes. Try changing to classic theme to look just like 2000 again! "Microsoft just ripped off linux and incorporated a lot of it's stuff into Windows XP" -- Linux has never been this great! "Windows XP uses up more resources than Windows 2000, i'd never sue it." -- Then I advise you also roll back to Diablo 1, and Doom 1, and maybe even Pong. Because these new games use up just as much as Windows XP does. "Windows XP sucks, I can't play any games." -- Then obviously you havn't installed them properly. "Windows XP has no good drivers!" -- And you're saying any other version of Windows had good drivers? Try downloading some from your hardware supplier. "Windows XP is so gay" -- No sir, it is you who are gay. These are actual quotes from a few forums, websites, and chatrooms that I've been to. Is this the epidome of the modern day world, to critisize and downsize every new product Microsoft, "The Evil Empire", releases. You all remind me of a bunch of school girls spreading rumors about the ugly fat girl in class. It's pitiful. Not everything you hear from this source or that source is true. Try a reliable source, an unbiased friend or co-worker, an unaffiliated website for true benchmarks.. - Too many people send me a benchmark of their video card, taken by a website affiliated with the company that makes their video card. Of course it's going to be good.. - And yes, on the back of the box, it will say "The best game in the world! - New York Times", they all say that. In fact, New York Times gets paid to say that. - Too many people say to me "My Uncle says Blizzard make the best games in the world", come to find out that their Uncle is a programmer at blizzard, of course. Windows XP is the most reliable and stable operating system to date. If you think otherwise, than you obviously don't know the intracate way it works. Obviously, you don't know what you're doing. "It runs too many pointless services." -- Disable the ones you don't need. "Windows XP crashes a lot" -- Maybe this is a hardware problem, and you need new drivers. Maybe you installed some software that has problems with the way Windows XP works. Try blaming the hardware manufacturer, or the software company. Why does it have to be Microsoft's fault? "It cant run my old DOS games" -- Set your compatibility settings, or maybe get a patch? I've ran a lot of old DOS games, and some other games which people told me "That wont work on Windows XP, I've tried it." -- It works for me. Yes, Windows XP has it's share of annoying bugs. What doesn't? Download the security updates, and the service packs, and the bug fixes. If your problem doesn't go away look on forums or search for other non-microsoft related fixes. I don't aggree with everything Microsoft does, like the Sun Java issue. But really, if Windows XP was that bad Microsoft woldn't have wasted money on it. A lot of you have never used Windows XP, or have never used it to a great extent. Get a life, and go complain about something you know. Because you know nothing in this case. I admit Windows XP does crash occasionally, and it has some bugs, and Luna is pretty gay. But if you don't know how to fix these things, or you don't even know why these things are happening so you blame Microsoft. GET A LIFE. I've personally used every Microsoft OS from 3.1 and up, and I can say that Windows XP is by far the most stable Operating System to date. I ran Windows XP about 5 months before it's public release date, when there were basically no hardware drivers for anything I had, and Windows XP detected both m offbrand soundcard and my nvidia video card flawlessly.
