    Microsoft = The Best Operating System

    I can't believe how great XP Home is, and I can be rest asured that no pirates will be screwing around with a copy of my Operating System. Those denegrates will have to turn to Linux.

    I heard that XP Professional is loaded with powerful features, perfect for the administrator of a large network, but ofcourse the server as in Windows .NET Enterprise is not yet available. This will likely be the most powerful Operating System on earth.

    How could they get YOUR version? And please, don't think XP is "unstealable". I've got the corp edition of Professional setting in front of me.

    What're you talking about? This has never been done before! I'm sure there's going to be a nice, friendly discussion about the relative merits of each operating system. I bet there's no name-calling, Dean never mentions the Taliban or Communists, and everyone quotes reliable, un-biased sources.

    Jeez, adrian - you're so cynical

    XP is a nice OS but if you think that MS stoped hackers from using it your misstaken. First you have the corp edition that don't have the registration process. And then you have the asian market that was selling cracked copies already before it was released. Me myself went back to W2K beacuse I thought using XP was like using AOL. I also use RH7.2 with KDE but so far I am not that impressed. I would pick W2K or XP anyday before I would use RH on my main puter.

    Before the Linux users get in, I'm gonna tell you to NOT listen to Dean and listen to me:

    If you want a real OS that is free, try BeOS...

    >Microsoft is taking bugs very seriously

    I'd never say Microsoft is too lazy with bugs.
    They never miss to put one in


    However, I'd take a 2K over Linux any day.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    ehh... personally, I'm sticking with Win98SE over 2k... but you can't rule out Linux... while I don't have a use for it at home right now, it's definately in the works for work apps...
