I actually had an account here before, but I had a long hiatus and forgot my login info. so created a new one. I covet XP Pro and can't stand any MS OS made since. I want to use it as long as possible but they're making it exceeding difficult to do so now... which is a problem I'm going to get into in a thread in the appropriate place shortly here.

Welcome here. This is the best forum for fans of older Windows.


Impossible to run the garbage Windows OSes after XP without third party fixes.

Thanks, there is great discussion here and I look forward to engaging in it. I also used belong to Wilders but don't post there as often anymore... using older OS's is generally frowned upon more there and discussing it will often lead to arguments. I used 98SE for a long time, until XP SP2, and then have been using that ever since. Well SP3 now. I stay behind a few generations in hardware too to get things cheaper. Not to mention sticking with 32-bit for the time being and on XP there's no use having current gen hardware. I only recently bought a Dell Inspiron 530 on EBay for next to nothing with a Core2Duo E8400 CPU in it. I wanted that model mainly for the hardware virtualization to make running VM's smoother. And has 4 GB of RAM (1GBx4), but is upgradable to 8 gigs so even if I upgrade my OS I feel that hardware is perfectly capable of handling it. Before that I had a Dimension 3000 with a 2.4 Ghz Celeron CPU & 2 GB of RAM for ages. I am migrating to SSD's though, for the speed increase and they're quiet.

See if you can get yourself an OCZ Vertex3... they're EoL now, so should cost little, but they do rock!
