July is good. I'll be done with finals by then, so I might go with a format too.

I don't understand why there are so many people who are desparately trying to make a XPSP2 CD using beta versions. Why don't they just wait until the final is released. lol.
Not talking about you guys here.

Sadly nothing is ever "final" release with Microsoft. :p

Also for that reason I'll probably wait a few weeks to install it .. let it do a more mass "beta" testing/patching. :D

I'm itching to reformat now. I wonder if I can wait another couple of months to do it.

The main thing I fear is redoing the amount of GUI customization that I've done. I've got most of the files saved and whatnot, but hacking this DLL and that DLL is just more work. And of course I just won't be satisfied with the default XP shell. :shrug: :)

I don't get the pasion people running xo have with reformats muzicool. My computer is so much faster long into the instal then when I first get the os running, and ya, plenty has to do with the interface settings, but plenty also has to do with optimization the os does for itself

I do love to read about the reformatt strategies you guys have though.

but I still wonder

My current reformat strategy has consisted of putting win2k on this comp. Its MUCH faster for my current setup, but it does lack nice features over XP. Having never used windows 2000, my jury is still out in this feature.

You'll regret it, I went back to 2k remembering how much faster and better it was.. well, it's not :D 2k makes you realise just how good XP is (I think, anyway)

Yeah I've never really understood how ppl can format like what seems constantly. Every system I've had I run till I upgrade w/out any problems.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
