Hi Guy's
I have been using Mac's for close to 2 years now, and often wonder if anybody has ever seen a Windows System as fast as a Mac, as I have never seen anything even close in speed, it seems to me that the OX system is years ahead.

XP when healthy was actually pretty fast. You just have to be careful with it. I still have my gaming laptop with XP on it.

If you maintain your XP machine, run CCleaner occasionally, and have a weekly scan, you're good to go. But Leopard is still nicer, imo.

I do agree... a whole lot less work to keep up and running... and it actually does what I tell it to do

I have no problems with my XP gaming rig, I do not run virus scan or have any type of protection on it. Though i do reimage it every month or so via Altiris. Made a image with all my games on it. takes about 15 mins to reimage her, and all you have to do is restart and your good to go, no passcodes, or cd-keys needed.
QUOTE Thanks
