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 :)

Although, I tried a pirated XP and I wouldn't boot up after a few times. Whats this? A trial OS?

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.

Microsoft = The Best Operating System

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...

ya xp is awesome!

:rolleyes:

are you insane? within 2 weeks of its releases an exploit was found in it that allowed anyone to gain root on the xp box... some of you might have heard about it... "plug & play"

now my question is troll_king are you even smart enought to use linux? lol you didnt even know how to operate a firewall... i rember that... you and your l33t security programs... *cough* lmfao dude your a joke... then you get aparently get drunk and post nothing but ****...

and wasnt it someone know as r0gu3 that rooted your little box? lol ya he was bragging about it on irc... it was quite funny since in the end you tought you had posted it the messages...

he hangs out on Efnet #2600 if you really want to meet him ;)

How can every say that xp is really stable? IE crashes like 2 or three times a day and it seems like when explorer crashes they dont wanna tell you that it crashed and it just seems to reset or sumthing because the screen blanks out for a second or two and just goes back to the desktop for no reason, closing all programs. Also how many of those send microblows an error report have you gotten? Sure, when it crashes it doesnt bring down the whole system (like 9x did) but still its not that great.

Sorry dean :)

Hey, someone actually rooted dean's box? What a flamer. Tell him he can try and root mine next...fyi again, rooting his box wouldn't give his cprog password. Not mentioning that, I think pretty much any little kiddie who gains illegal access to someone's PC is a total dorkus :rolleyes:

Really your comments discust me, they do. As some other members of this board should recall, Troll King was one of the bigest avacites for Linux, and had a colege course on it.

Troll_King does not seem intested in servers, and main frames. That is what linux is good for. Unix is good for very powerful mathimatial work, because it was desined for.

As for windows- Windows 95, and 98 were perfectly stable for me, as long as I ran disk dignostic tools, and most other problems were a result of the hardware failing, and the fact that it maintainde backwords compatitiblity with DOS despite it's huge limitations

As for 2000 I have never heard off any one experinsing problems, with it.

And XP the ones that seem to have problems are the onces that did not pay for it.

[syn], those are some harsh words toward Dean. Don't get mad at him just because he likes Windows, and doesn't want to go back to Linux. (Yeah you heard me right.)

>what makes beos, openbsd, freebsd,... better/worse than the mac, linux, or windows?<

I can only speak for BeOS:

1. It's far more stable than any OS I've ever used.
2. It's fast, real fast.
3. It's free (well, there's a free version at least).
4. Its filesystem beats the hell out of anything you can put on the table. 64-bit, journalled, supporting multiple terabyte hard disks, and being able to manage file sizes in the terabyte range. *drools*
5. It can run 8+ mpegs all at once....and still being able to watch them, without glitches....on a P2 at 266MHz. (An example of BeOS' incredible multitasking abilities.)
6. It's very powerful. Anything done via the GUI can be accomplished through the terminal (which is very UNIX like).
7. SMP support. Sure, the server versions of Windows has this too, but BeOS is a desktop OS, not a server OS. :p

No one broke my security. I have a 20 year old system than anyone can access but nobody cares about. One of my better terminals is protected when I'm not using it.

Anyway, your pirating days are numbered because all Microsoft products are going to use product activation. You might as well get a real job so that you can pay for your software.

Yes, Windows is the best operating system, do I even have to mention that? Even these old mainframes that use Unix will have to upgrade to Micrsoft Windows if they want to compete with the next generation technology.

You would be wise to get busy learning how to program in Windows and .NET tomorrow morning, because you will be even further isolated in the future unless you act now.

need i remind you that he activation was cracked before XP was even released? duh, they WILL NEVER STOP IT untill they stop being such tight asses and work with outside (people/companies) to improve they're (security/products). WICH WILL NEVER HAPPEN! well not untill a few months have passes and they get really desperate.

.NET is about as useful as a pile of wet ****... NOBODY USES .NET, MS actually rigged a poll to make it look like people were gonna use it.

MS IS DIEING LOOK AROUND YOU THEY'RE DESPERATE FOR MONEY!!
they might very well survive but there is an assload of new competition comming and they are gonna get hit hard unless they can legitimize themselves real quick.

LMAO!

I agree that windows is easy to use..... compared to many systems. Certainly my preferred choice of GIU. However, win2k server is remarkably bad for admins. Linux is far easier.... (never thought i'd say that!!!!!)

I used WindowsXP for a while. It sucks though because I couldn't play half the games on XP because it started to act up. Also, the WindowsXP Nvidia driver is kind of slow, although that's not really Microsoft's fault.

I think Microsoft products are okay, mostly Windows 2000 and MSVC++ 6.0. Although, I don't approve of the actual company, and Bill's dorky glasses.

Haha moron. I know a lot of people who have pirated versions of Windows XP, it was cracked the day it came out. Some people hacked it so you don't have to activate it. It's nearly impossible to stop people from pirating software.

Also, I would like to say that I am NOT happy with Windows XP home. I'd much rather use 2K.

Oh, also, it is possible for one person to buy the corporate edition, which is basically WindowsXP Professional without the online registration...It's just $300 dollars more, and well worth it if a group of friends were to split the cost.

For all you degenerates who complain about windows products, maybe that's because cracked software is garbage. Just get a job and learn how to program.

Just to add a little fuel to the fire, any of you ever hear of Lindows? It is a Linux variant that is attempting to be compatible with all windows applications. However, Microsoft is suing them because of their name.

This coming from a guy who's boasted on many occasions that he got his copy of Win 2K for the price of the CD....

Win2k has no copy protection, why would it be cracked? All I'm saying is cracked software doesn't work as well as the original. Some say that there is a version of XP that is not copy protected, well I guess MS made a bad choice. They should have incorporated product activation to all versions.
