What windows version is the best?
XP professional is the best unless you play old games or GTA3.
Windows 2000...I feel that it is more stable than WinXP
Depends on what you are using it for. Windows 2000 is more stable, it doesn't have as much bloat as XP but XP is easier to install and maintain.
I prefere XP, is stable and looks cool
I am currently using XP Pro on all of my PC's. I think it's the best M$ OS to date.
i'm using windows 2000 on my pc, i think it's great!!!
Windows XP pro is the most stable OS i've had.
W2K...I think it was too stable for Microsoft so they had to figure out a way to make things more convoluted with XP...although XP is pretty cool
I agree that the more newer OS's are much more stable, especially Windows 2000 and 2003. Same goes for XP, but the GUI takes up a lot of memory and being on 128Mb is a no no, as I discover each day...
XP all the way...
2000 is very nice as well.
I didn't say what I think is the best.
I think the best would be windows 2000 or windows 98.
I am currently using windows 2000 server edition. Using a server version makes a difference on your midis, music and internet connection.
Really? How so? I am listening.
I've tried XP, and while it's definately better than any DOS-based Win (95/98/98se/ME), it has a few problems:
1. Tons of coded-in spyware.
Get and run XPAntiSpy to remove/disable them:
2. Very much of a bloated resource pig. You'll need about twice the amount of RAM to effectively run XP as opposed to 2K.
3. Any program or OS with an activation scheme gets my goat.
and what fun is having ANY OS without a goat?
I thiiink... he means that the OS is optomised for internet connections. Hah! The OS is not a factor. It is strictly hardware and bandwidth performance.
win xp prof
WinXP Pro, only crashes I've had were hardware related (dodgy RAM)
Though I prefer linux, I only use win2000 if I have to use an MS OS.
I agree with theARTISAN about winXP. I 've seen a lot problems when trying to install XP on certain VIA mobos, there are a lot of problems with some RAMs as well. Perhaps winXP are cool, goodlooking, but when refering to stability they suck.
Regarding earlier versions (DOS based) only Win98 SE are preferable, while WinME are the worst OS ever released.
BTW, any of you using win2000 should install SP4 and of course all the latest security patches.
