It's deja-vu all over again....
From 2002 -yes the truth is that WIN XP sux! big time! first of all there are some irritating compatibility flaws... for e.g when i was using win2k i chked the compatibility for winxp it didnt show any major problem as for few little proggies that was ok....BUT when i upgraded it to WIN XP it said that it was not compatible with my modem(MOTOROLA SM56PCI) which was a major blow! and the damn thing said that u should chk for the drivers on the website but helllooooooo how am suppose to connect without my modem working! duh! so i had to again format it and install win2k which BTW rocks! among all the wins.
and another thing the interface also sucks it looks like wall of TOYS-R-US store! all bright and colourful i mean what the hell is that are we suppose to entertain lil kids with it or what!
phew! that was a bad experience !
I freakin love the Toys-R-Us line. Definitely NOT a future skinner.
2003 - I just wanted to know how everyone else views the XP operating system. I've used it a lot and I hate it. It seems very slow and bloated. It is not very secure either I understand? The way it has to be activated, to keep using it, what would you do if you wanted to put it on your other machines? Also what if Microsoft remotely disabled my machine?
The whole Windows world infuriates me, but it's what we're forced to live with.
Yes, I hate XP. They are clearly trying to rip off the Mac interface and featrues, and what they have done is just horribly insulting. Especially considering the fact that they make about $50 billion (yes, $50 billion) a year, that you'd think they'd be able to spend just a little bit of that on making their products more quality and original. But, if you're upgrading from a previous OS to XP, it's better just to buy a new computer.
XP has some nice features (photo viewer/thumbnails for video are good) but is buggy as hell. I'll stick with 98!
ive gone back to 98 and will stick with it until microsoft take their fingers out of their a***s and give us something that works first time round.
you will be assimilated.
