I voted its good.

Whilst it has _many_ downfalls - Its still good software at the end of the day.

I also agree though that its not long before the Linux Desktop will become commonplace, and with more and more users - Pretty soon more Windows developers are going to have to think about porting rather than just OSS developers being kind and making Win32 ports

My 2c anyways


Chill.

XP is good. I would say more but I would just be repeating Chill's post!

For the end user, Windows XP is great. For some, linux is better.

Of course, that's not what this thread is really about is it?

This sort of thing always causes trouble.Not me Graham, you ought to know my style better than that. its just another one of the resident idiots making a dick of himself (or herself we've had a few female idiots as well I believe.

Hopefully Bruce will delete all of these nonsense posts before they become contagious.

gravel rocks. stones rock. geological formations rock.

windows xp does not rock. it's a good os, however it is not the best. it is the best in many areas, but not all. therefore, it does not rock. it does not suck either. guess which os has the best hardware/software compatibility. therefore, it does not suck

there is honestly nothing wrong with xp, maybe there needs to be a few changes but its not too bad the way it is, same goes with linux, ive tried linux, i like it and it sure is very different.

I think the problem that people have is the fact that they dont like Bill Gates :rolleyes: , the fact is that he is a very smart business man, when he sees competition he then throws out the cheque book and makes a purchase, some dont like it but its a smart move :cool:

Dude if you're paying $800 you are getting ripped!!! Try for an OEM upgrade, buy a stick of RAM with it.

I think XP is OK certainly better than the versions before it.

I am ready to vote, and I wish to vote no to the question.

But what the hell is "teh suxx0rs" and "teh r0xx0rs", they dont even look like the words yes or no.

If that is in text cell-phone language sorry but I just dont understand it. I just delete the stupid things and they ring me instead if its important.

I think your underestimating people by a large margin, Most i would imagine are easily capable of weighing up the pro's and con's of an item of software without giving 0.2 seconds thought to the worlds richest man.

Windows have it's place in the IT world. In MHO the only role it's good for is as a desktop luser system. As a Server *nix would be my only choice.

I use it because I have to, not because I want to. (MS Office thingies forces me) But it is a lot more stable than the older versions were, at least no more Blue Screens of Death, just blank Screens of Desktop Crashing. And at least it is a LOT better than MS Office, that application absolutely sucks.

Use what you want and works for you.

I have not voted.

Seems a little like christianity having Anglican, Catholic, Methodist, Protestant etc. We all agree we are christians but people disagree as to the principles maybe.

WinXP works for me.

I won't go into the differences between Labour and National. :groan:

.
I begg to differ. I get a blue screen at least once a week! And freez quite regularly, the only thing good about that is when I ctrl+alt+del and end the froze program then windows is good to go. I must say XP recovers much better then the older versions of windows, espicaly from explorer crashess, sometimes moving my mouse to the start menu results in a crash, but XP never seems to go down, and manages to recover itself.

XP is OK it's just that Mac OSX & Linux are so much better.

Yeah, I think XP is good. I think they could fix quite a few things about it thoug.

this makes me wonder, linux distro makers are mostly all DIYers whereas microsoft is a massive company and employs 1000's of programmers, why is it that linux makers can make a OS so secure and ms cant with all their brains and money??

Chilling_Silence

E|im - You didnt have to get smart about it, add one more to the number of times you've been banned yourself now alright.

It was an honest mistake not to recognise the imposter Billy post at the start of the thread.

Prescott - Obviously linux aint perfect, but because of its nature, faster release cycles, faster learning from mistakes, quicker implementation of newer features/functionality/bugs/bug-fixes etc.

Both have their pro's & cons, but imagine if millions of dollars was suddenly poured into the linux kernel development :D

True that lol, what would Linux look like if Linus Torvalds earned $500 a second... jus like Uncle Bill

Anyway, as far as this poll is concerned.... I use XP; for the time being it will do.... I think Microsoft in general is slack for the amount of money getting poured into it.
If I had a lot more time, I would probably investigate Linux a bit closer, but I have heard that Linux also doesnt like hardware....

Soooo.... when Uncle Linus gets paid the same as Uncle Bill, I might get a lot more serious about Linux
