Why Windows XP is terrible to me.

Post by Dukenukem5 »

I have 3 reasons XP is a bad OS to me.
1. When a program loads sometimes, the computer closes it itself.
2. The computer never responds to me.
3. It won't install some old games. If you have a question about your XP problems, you can reply here. Windows 2000 never does it to me. It's better then XP, because it never cause those problems execpt some old games.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+
1GB Kingston
GeForce 7300 LE 512MB
Asus M2N-X

All drivers compatible with XP

I Already played more than 400 games, only one is incompatible, Hitman: Codename 47, incompatible with the video card.
The computer is on 24 hours and only restart once a month or when the installation of any application asks.

I never have problems, and when I have, is to stay a long time without format, accumulating much garbage of uninstalled programs.
There are only 10 types of people in the world: Those who understand binary, and those who don't.

I find XP is better than Vista just because XP has had more time to have bugs fixed up and such. And yes I have used Vista.

Definatley sounds like something nasty is eating up your ram.
Try stopping all apps from starting with windows, that always seems to speed things up!

Yup, something is definately wrong there. I'd recommend a format and reinstall. It's usually the only solution when a PC is that bad.

I agree. I only like longhorn, not 2000.

It's all a matter of personal opinion and dependent on HOW you're using it and WHAT you're using it on. I've had problems with XP, sure. But overall, XP has been the most dependent Microsoft OS I've ever used. Vista's on it's way to the same trustworthiness after SP1 (I think that's a word), but it still has some kinks to work out...and core 2, why did you pick Longhorn over XP? Sure, it's cooler, but not even comparable with 2000 as far a stability is concerned.

NT4 is the best.

No, really. It's small, has very low requirements, and is actually useful .

Also, I wanted to make an NT4 WIM installer using Longhorn's installer, but that's impossible AFAIK.

Oh really? How much do you want to bet on that?

shhh. You ruined it now. I was going to turn up in half an hour with a completed WIM installer. Anyway, I'll upload it anyway to my BA WIM Server

hounsell: If you'll get NT4+SP6+SRP+all unofficial patches in a WIM fitting on a CD, installable, then I'll give you a cake.
