Just had to laugh

I am ( Cry) installing XP on a system, and got to the point in the install where the splash screen said:-
"Your Computer will be FASTER"
Cheesy Grin Grin
Why then is the whole idea that I need to re-install xp cause this machine is running like a dog with 3 legs  Crazy
Give my Linux any day  Wink

Re: Just had to laugh

Gotta be said, when I first moved onto XP I found it a significantly better OS. 660-70 seconds to boot WinMe vs 30 to boot XP. I never looked back.
No comments about *nix, been there and done that arguement.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Just had to laugh

having three netbooks and not fiddling with them, the oldest is an asus 900 with Linux works fast and does what I want
SWMBO has a bigger one on XP - that works longer to load
I use  an EEpc with Win 7, dont really like the user interface, it only the starter edition and the security stops you doing things that are easier on the XP
Also got a bigger Win 7 media PC, difficult to get that in my case when travelling
