Windows XP

It's a little over 3 months since the release.
Who has it and what do you think of it?

I think it's very good, better than Windows 2000 with more user friendly things but built on the same NT base.
I'm running professional and it's no worries. Early in the piece I was having BSOD's from the Nvidia Infinate loop bug but that seems to have been sorted out with drivers and so forth.

I've been using for about a month or so now, and so far I like it. Win2000 is good but WinXP just has a few things over it, its quick, stable and more enjoyable to use i find.

If you are thinking of getting it, make sure to check that all your hardware will be compatible, or you could have troubles.

Do I really have to write something funny in here?

Check to see if the bios is saying the same thing Jesmol, could be a bung module or needs seating again.

I've had it only a couple weeks and I don't mind it. It seems very stable thou I had some problems with the remote assistance(Just testing it out with a mate) It clagged the whole system downand took a while to get it back into my control. Thou it may be quicker than 98/ME/2000 I don't notice it that much at all.

In my lamen terms opinion it is a very pretty and attractive version of win2000.

I likes it. Had no probs at all with any software.

I have it but apart from occasionally testing it I have stayed with 98SE. I need a new copy of Nortons System Works Pro and some other stuff that won't run on XP before I make the move permanent but I will soon.
