Another geek here although lately I've been running M$ XP media center edition and have to admit; it works pretty flawlessly. I am getting ready to start dual booting with Fedora Core again though. I was a long time Redhat user and stayed with Fedora Core until just recently.

Firefox Browser and have always been a mosaic killer (Mozilla) user/beta tester.

Should be able to choose multiples in the poll.

My XP machine is currently undergoing some sort of operation meltdown. Woke up today and my start bar is all screwed up, computer is half as fast as it normally is, when I changed all the setting back, they all started changing back again. I show no viruses, or anything...I hate XP, Vista may be the next step for me...

EEEEEEKKKK! I would stay away from vista....at work it has been nothing but a PIA, a lot of drivers won't work with it, wireless sucks etc etc, Dell actually started offering XP again cause Vista is that bad!....eh, hhhhmmm....not to sound like a a.s.s but did you try something like spybot?

Yeah I tried it all. I just disabled a bunch of things and it seems to be working fine, still slow but nothing is screwing up. I think I will format or something. Pile of crap. Maybe I will just go back to windows 98 lmao.

Yes and it blows! It is graphically obese and does not offer many, if any, more functional features than XP. Personally I would stay with XP at very least until the first service pack comes out for Vista. I work in my school's IT department and we have had big problems with students and faculty getting vista. One of the biggest problems is the wireless the permissions are nuts. Also many drivers, such as audio, video, etc, don't work well or at all with vista. Also if you want to disable something it asks you if you are sure about a million times. Vista also does not like to play with ipods and other mp3 players sometimes..... And for those of you who are into illegal downloads...cough, umm.. vista tracks those.
