Upgrade comp parts on WinXP
Finally the list of parts you can upgrade without making XP unhappy are available, but not from M$.
Like the article says, this should've been made available up front.

Anyone ever wonder what XP stands for? (X)tremely (P)athetic.
What do you mean you don\'t have a backup disk?

Here's what I have done with my XP Home-box untill now:
1. installed on FAT32
2. installed on NTFS
3. formatted, installed again
4. formatted, installed again
5. added new harddrive - installed again - Had to call MS to get a new activation code
6. new puter, installed again - Had to call MS to get a new activation code again
7. hard disk crash, installed again - no need to call MS this time
So, I guess after a couple of installs / new activation codes, XP just assumes you're hopeless and doesn't bug you anymore with that activation-thingie

yuck-yuck, that's funny, I reinstalled to start fresh w/ larger clusters in NTFS and added another hardrive, but didn't have to get an new acti code, guess I lucked out. Could've used that list a while ago though, been going by trial an error, had to go back to a winmodem fer XP, but the nixer still digs my Zoom, zoom turbo zoooooooooooooooommmmm. . .

XP sucks...It's almost as bad as WinME. You want security? Get rid of XP. It is the most worthless OS for security. The default features on it are terrible. Hopefully M$ will pull it's head out of it's butt and realize it's problems. Even after releasing a huge security update, XP is still the easiest OS to break into, especially with Black Ice on it.
