    I don't actually use the XP machine for any development. It just came that way and my wife uses it for multimedia stuff.
    Wakeup in the morning and kick the day in the teeth!! Or something like that.

    Cool

    From MiCk:
    any people out there that actually like XP, please comment, I want to hear why.
    Jane(interviewer) : So, Mr. Xeon.....what's your views on Windows XP?
    Xeon : Things cannot be better. This is the dream OS of many a boy and many a girl.
    Jane : But isn't it just another Windows 2000 with cool clothes on?(Luna interface)
    Xeon : Folks who think in this manner gotta get a life, seriously. I've told everyone from te start of last year that Windows XP is God's chosen operating system for the masses.
    Jane : Wow...you seem to really love this OS among others! Why's the main draw?
    Xeon : First, this celestial OS doesn't crash.
    In all my life of using XP, it has only hanged 2 times. Compare this to Windows 9x.
    Jane : But folks can just survive with Windows 2000.
    Xeon : Sure, it depends.
    If you want a full clone of Windows 98 that DOES NOT crash, go for Windows 2000.

    If you want a true blue OS that does not crash and a legendary OS that has all the features you want and more, XP is the way to go.
    Play games on XP with no lag time, surf and collect porn on XP with maximum enjoyment up-time(tissues, please), do software on XP at 150% faster paces and more......such as using the new Paint program, personal firewall, personal compression tools, and much more.
    The best is : the interface is more than enough to kill me : it's too awesome.

    Been facing the same interface everyday and still.......it seems to look sexier and prettier everyday!!!
    Why...I can't believe this......usually, when you see something long enough, you'll get tried of it....but in this case, I don't. It's the exact opposite.
    Jane : If there's one thing you wanna say about XP, what is it?
    Xeon : Well, I would say "Thank you, Microsoft!!! You have really created an OS this time that really captures the attention of the Lord Himself, and this OS is more than enough to propel the human civilization into the millenniums beyond without the need for any more service packs or patches".

    Huh? Are you smoking dope or something? XP is more 98ish than 2000...2000 is more UN*Xish IHMO, maybe that's why I like it.

    Hate XP.

    The one OS's that I use from time to time is a Win 2000.

    But can say **** Windows and M$ too.

    Linux - forever! Unix - forever too!

    Nah... And how about the latest two (even in Win Server 2003) which even M$ classificated like "critical": one in DirectX and second in DCOM( RPC part ). Both of them give possibility to run maliculus code from remote host. But how much noise was during promotion of new Win Server 2003 like the REAL SAFE OS.

    Yeh... Thank U Microsoft that U always care about us and love us and ...hmmm ... our money.

    Yeh I know... and if really I like this
    And U can see that someone donot like this (hm... I can even say WHO)... remember a situation with SCO.

    Go for a UN*X work Mick Do U have some expirience in programming for UN*X?

    SCO *lol* SCO...ahh yea...piece of shait SCO.

    do I have experience with UN*X...why I guess so, considering I have laid hands on every possible UN*X platform in the world. Why you ask? I worked for a company that provided a protocol to talk to VMS platforms in the early 90's, so we ported said protocol to hmm like I said every UN*X platform under the sun....err DECnet..yummy...

    Just interesting... I have been programming for UN*X for an year already... well well seems may be not so long how U did it but this is a good first step to the UN*X world
    What are your positions in win programming, as I remember U are a driver developer?

    I've done just about everything in windoze I guess. The company I had been working for (security and DRM) had planned on writing a secure OS down the road, so I figured after I got done with that, then I could say I've done it all, and go be a marine biologist or something. I guess after you have spent a number of years coding etc etc, your comfortable with doing anything.
