Re: Windows XP or Windows 2000

Well, I play duplicate bridge on line...i know what does that have to do with it...I upgraded to XP from 2000 and I absolutely LOVE XP. Makes writing to CD's a breeze and managing photos too. But I am a pretty simple user so it is more about how easy it is for me and I guess I don't have a lot of sophisticated needs...

Why do they lay in your path and refuse to move out of your way and then complain bitterly when you trip over them?

Re: Windows XP or Windows 2000

I bought a Dell way back in 1999. The darn thing was a learning tool...I learned so much from this system and it has held up soooooooo well. However, the Dell has metamorphed into a pretty good little system with all the changes that I have made but I am on the low of end of system specifications that are needed for programs these days.

I would suggest that you go with Windows XP. It's wonderful!!! I just love it. I used Windows 98 SP up until I installed XP. I tried all the others inbetween and they were all the pits. Had difficulty with each and everyone of them.

All though XP may have some security issues. Microsoft has attempted to get their act together. They were informed long before they issued this xp system about the security system..but you know how the big boys think they know it all.

Anyway, I wouldn't turn on my computer without a firewall, anit-virus, adaware or spyware program. Your just asking for trouble. I don't know how many times I'm allerted to spy-ware just surfing on normal everyday net information. You'd be amazed.

Re: Windows XP or Windows 2000

If I were you I would go for a MAcintosh. The new system, MacOs X, works so well. Beats Winsows system. The latest is a flat screen with the computer built into the screen. Doesn't take much place! Wish I had one of those.
