Is XP really the best? Enlighten me ppl, because I was under the impression that XP was the worst MS OS ever. Did I understand the **** with registration right? Is it really true XP sends info about usage etc to MS? Enlighten me!
I think I found the smell

As I read my last reply I realized that I sound like I am supporting what phantom2k was saying. Just for the record I do not. I was only trying to translate his babble.
As far as Win XP I am not sure I like the new registration rules. If it works anything like Offixe XP we will only be required to give non personal information, but who is to say the code isn't getting other information from the registry and passing it to MS. An OS that monitors what hardware upgrade I perform. I am not sold no matter how well the OS operates.

Love it or hate it, but Windows 95's Registration Wizard already checked your pc for about 150 software titles and sent the list to Redmond. I started a new thread to ad(d) your own...

Nearly everyone I have talked to about winXP said the same thing.
Its great, and never crashes.
This reminds me of when win2K came out, everyone said the same thing about it.
Then 4 months later, thier win2k systems started crashing all the time.
Hmm, I wonder how long XP will last.

This one is for Ennis
Ennis said "I run Linux, Im a Hacker" LOL
No smart hacker admits to being one, get over it!
About windows XP, Its all in the Socks baby! A perfect tool for exploiting if you ask me. Ppl running it will never know the extent of how insecure they can really be. GRC.com read and learn.

Yeah, most don't admit to it, but most of them also have 10 computers in their living room running every possible OS out there too

Good point knight, My question is, Why does Microsoft constantly rush to put out Products that they Damn well know are full of possible Exploits? When They were approached regarding the possible "negative" uses for Winxp, they simply denied the fact that they were
1. Setting up users with a system that is extrmely vulnerable
(I do appreciate that heheh)
2. Rushing it onto the market because the needed a product that users wanted in response to the disaster of WinMe. Win 98 is as far as I have gone,as the rest are crap. I will get XP though.
hmmm Makes me wonder.

Just thought I would add that Microsoft trying to gather user info is not any thing new even the chipsets on intel motherboards are sending user data every time u access the interne, and the only way to stop them is to download a patch from the microsoft web site. Also from what I can tell Winxp is goin to have verry few security fetures that will really pose a chalange to a serious hacker. By the way quick survey what is everyones favorite OS? Mine is Win98.
