    Is there anyone out there running Windows XP ? I'm currently using 2k Pro and I love it.

    Is it worth the upgrade?

    I will have to warn you if u are going to install XP... I've been using it for 6 months now and well i had to go back to my loved 2K Pro...

    There was a mayor problem with it... My CPU was running at 99% and the explorer was using all of my memories!!!

    I went to the micro$oft site and nothing... went to forums... nothing... so I finally gave up and well.... got rid of it... now I have 2K and well everything is running supper fast and no crashes...

    Stick with 2K Pro... XP is just not worth it!!!

    Tha's just my punny opinion!!!

    there is that better

    Hey man... What sort of hardware do you have. Have you upgraded from a previous O/S. XP is dead fussy about its hardware list. It chews heaps of resources as well. More than Win2k. If your CPU is running that fast when you open Exploder, I think something is trying to run ast the same time and your PC may not be coping. Make sure you have plenty of grunt in your PC and recent hardware.:) Try a clean install rather than upgrade

    IF you have a decent comp geforce 3, 1.4ghz etc then it is great, the graphics are nice and it doesn;t crash often but there are a few compatibility problems, only the fussy ones thogh

    Hmmm... Interesting!!

    Win Xp smokes it. Try to get the Professional version. Games also run a little faster on it. I haven't had to reboot once in over 6 months.

    I've said this about a dozen times already - run XPAntiSpy if you're going to run XP.
    Search the board for it, I've got info all over the place here already ;)

    XP rocks. All the software people are putting all their time into it. Win2K is old news
