m$ need to foucs on making a smaller faster OS, not bloatware with a
On my machine, the beta 2 of WinXP boot faster and takes less RAM then my windows 2000 installation.
i mean is wink 2k that much better than nt4 with ie5 & sp6
YES it is! Just think about the 'Plug and Play' features. It reconize a lot more hardware then NT4. USB support. MMC integration for system administration. Easy Internet sharing. IP Filtering Firewall. Better support for scanners and cameras. Support for DirectX 7 and 8. Better power management. The list goes on. As a former tech support employee, I prefer troubleshooting a Win2000 machine then a WinNT4 machine.
WinXP is much the same clunky gui (some ppl will be saying it is
alsome, but does it make you work better?) thats slow and big in
filesize. wizzie graphics don't help you work better, it's not a
tool, just a reason for m$ to get you to upgrade.
It is much the same GUI because it already made its proof and because users doesn't want to learn a new GUI anyway. Yes, some new feature in the XP GUI makes me work better. The hiding feature of the systray icons, the group feature of the task bar (I don't need a two row task bar anymore), the mouse-over highlight on buttons and tabs, etc. I also find the new GUI very sexy! :) In addition to the new ComCTL32.dll features and the Stardock WindowBlindsXP that gives us the power to modify the GUI appearance as we want. I think the users wanted GUI enhancements as much as MS.
i think i'll stick to running nt4 on my 1.2ghz athlon with 512mb ram
and flying through everything like it's on steroids!.
XP was running pretty fast on my PIII 450 with 256MB RAM. If you can't run WinXP adequately on your 1.2GHz Athlon, maybe you should consider buying a Pentium?! :)
