full ACK.
don`t call Xp _that_ "worse" - it really _is_ the "best" (or at least the "fewer buggy")
Microsoft OS. i heard a colleague at work say: damn 2000/XP - NT4 is the best! that
colleage is known to be someone, who really doesn`t like to dig into new things and
he judges about things, he doesn`t really know.
furthermore, i heard the brother of a girlfriend say: naaahh, XP is crap. i get worms
from the internet, when i use it. so i better stay with win98 - i`m safe there :D *hahaha*

sure - some things changed in XP, maybe some things are even worse than in 2000 - but
all things considered......
regards
roland

ps:
ooooppps - this is offtopic. let`s stop :D
