Let's share the experience using winxp.

What is your hardware settings for xp?

Epox 8KTA3+


HY133 -- 320M

Duron 800

ATI Radeon LE 32DDR

SB Live Digital



The startup speed of xp is as the same as that of win2000. Feeling faster when running prog. under xp.

Running 4 2 monthes, no crash down!

Most prog. are compiatable with xp, while some are not like AutoCAD.

Xp supports lots of hardware which are not supported by win2000. I got a Mircotek Slimscan C3 USB. It cannot be regonised by win2000 but accepted by xp. Great!!!

Bye for now, Until then!
