Nice to know that the driver stuff is more or less fixed though.



What video card? What do you do on your computer?

Before abandoning xp you could try Litestep shell replacement.
It gives xp a new look and users can customize it in a variety of ways. It works on 7 too but has more bugs.

Nope. Retail sales stopped in 2009, and oem sales stopped in oct 2010. so unless someone has it in stock, you can't get it.

XP x64 is good, I couldnt install Windows live messenger though.. but I found a way around that.
I had no driver issues what so ever.
I never got a BSOD unless I overclocked with the wrong settings..


overall I would give it about 7/10
Hope I helped.

Not too many people that dont like Windows 7. I know there has been some mistakes by Microsoft over the years but Windows 7 isnt one of them. Get it , the 64 bit version and be happy.

No wifi-card in this machine, well.. hopefully everything I want will work, I'm going to install it tomorrow and spend all day making sure every single program and piece of hardware I own works properly.. should be fun.

If I had another case and enough leftover components from my old computer, I might have considered putting 7 on it just to mess around with it, but alas, only one computer.. and I really want it back to normal right now.

Cheers for the input though.
That's absolutely false. There are things called themes.

As far as XP 32bit vs 64bit goes I had heard that the 64bit version is based on a the kernel of a concurrent server edition release making it (theoretically) more stable than 32bit. Initially it suffered from lack of driver and app support but it got better over time.
