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!
To XP or not to XP, that is the question!

Had win2k before, but then it mysteriously deleted boot.ini, and then explorer looped error, starting it over and over....

XP seems to run fine.

Absolutely love XP - seems much more responsive than 2K which I used since beta 2. Been using XP since beta 2 as well - even the beta was better.:)
