10:30 am - The day after XP
Well it's installed and its basic stuff is setup.

Other then the hard drive corruption which should be gone since all the drives have been formated.

Problems still left to face:

Getting remote desktop working. (Ferret is this only for local network computers or can i use this over broadband?)

Get rear speaker out to work for some reason i have to plug speakers into my livedrive on the front of the computer.
Otherwise windows plays the opening sound and then dies. but works fine on the front.

And then the tough stuff. getting video and 3d to work. Hopefully i can get my all in wonder software to work.

Good things about XP........

It looks pretty?

I have my LJ icon on my start menu. :)

It will be stable and faster.... hopefully. I haven't noticed much increase yet other then outlook
but thats cause it doesn't have to deal with the 5-6 years of email.

And getting Divx to work wasn't to much of a hastle though i was worried when the movies went into highspeed which appears to just be
the video catching up so its all good.

We will see what the future holds

Re: Hurrah for Apple

Oh lord i've started the OS wars.

Now all we need is an os/2 advocate.

I think i've used almost every os out there.
linux, unix, windows, os/2, os 9, os X,

The main reason i keep onthe MS track is cause there are more programs and games there.

and i haven't had time to devote my systems to linux.

I have a 95 laptop (needs to use a monitor), a linux box (in a state of not working), my now xp box.

When i moved i threw out the one apple i had. Was an old II/se that i never got to turn on once from missing some cords.

At work we use 2000 pro and have an os X mac and a solaris sunblade and a neat looking Qube 3 :)

Hey I said ALMOST.....

Actually i think i installed a demo or something of Beos that ran over windows or something like that once a few years back.

Re: Hurrah for Apple

II/se. Wow. You're comparing a TiBook or a new iBook to a II/se? ::shaking head::

I want a Lisa to stick on my desk because its a sexy computer in and of itself.

OS X 10.1 came out today, didn't it? Whee!
