Well...after long hard work and deliberation...I have figured out the differences between 95 and XP:



//Windows 95
int main (void)
{
BootUp();
FlashCopyrightSigns();
Crash();
}




//Windows XP
int main (void)
{
BootUp();
RunFineForSixMonths();
CrashQuadratically ( );
DoThatForAFewMonths();
CrashTotally();
}

So the only real difference was the length of time you had to pay through the nose for Tech Support?

That's kinda funny - sorta like Dean's Linux-Windows switch...

DavidP several months ago
"Win XP is great! There's no problems at all!"

DavidP about a month ago
"I'm having a few problems with XP, but it's okay"

DavidP now
"hazafraggin...."

:D

A long time ago I wrote this and posted it...



#include "XP.h"
#include "WinNT.h"

void WaitCrashThread(void);

int main(void)
{
//bootup
Randomize(ERROR_MSGS); //WinXP does this at BOOT! Neat!
UseMem("75%"); //improvement!
Boot(WinNT->XPShell);
DumbDown(WIN_NT);
LockOut(USER_CMDS); //only during boot though, right?
if(SystemSweep(PhysicalDrive, "erroneous") == 1) //oopsie!
{
SysBeep(1);
printf("possible error found on drive %s - reformatting.\n",PhysicalDrive);
Format(PhysicalDrive);
if(USER_FRANTICALLY_BASHING_KEYS)
StallSystem(50);
printf("There we go, all clean");
Reboot();
}
else //continue loading XP
{
Release(USER_CMDS);
Load(PrettySkin, BUTCHER_COMPRESS);
if(!UserLogin())
{
LockOut(USER_CMDS); //shouldn't ........ed XP off!
printf("Bad Boy!\n");
while(1)
{
Reboot();
Crash();
}
}
Play(Load(AnnoyingStartupMIDI), MAX_VOLUME);
LockOut(COMPETITOR_APPS); //including ZoneAlaram! Take that!
if(SystemSweep(ALL_DRIVES, "competitor) == 1) {_unlink(Found);}
Load(WIN_NT::XP_CORE) //slipped in a SMALL touch of C++
} //Great, done booting up!
Start(ALL_APPS);
Start(UNWANTED_APPS);
Annoy();
Display(COPYRIGHT);
Annoy();
Display(COPYRIGHT);
if(!Register)
KillComputer(TOTAL, FRY_RAM, MELT_CPU);
Display(COPYRIGHT);
if(Closed(ANY_APP)
Restart_App();
Call(WaitCrashThread());
return 666;
}

void WaitCrashThread(void)
{
Wait(30); //one month
Crash();
LockOutEx(USER_CMDS, FORCE_REINSTALL);
}

Know what the scary thing is? I wrote that before I even had XP, and a few of those things would appear to be correct...


if(SystemSweep(PhysicalDrive, "erroneous") == 1) //oopsie!
{
SysBeep(1);
printf("possible error found on drive %s - reformatting.\n",PhysicalDrive);
Format(PhysicalDrive);
if(USER_FRANTICALLY_BASHING_KEYS)
StallSystem(50);
printf("There we go, all clean");
Reboot();
}
that's practically correct (damn do I hate rebooting incorrectly, cuz that's whn XP does this)

>>Play(Load(AnnoyingStartupMIDI), MAX_VOLUME);

Damn is that music ever loud!
>>LockOut(COMPETITOR_APPS); //including ZoneAlaram! Take that!

Sure does!

>>Load(WIN_NT::XP_CORE) //slipped in a SMALL touch of C++

Boy howdy!
