    Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition is the best microsoft Operating System I have used to date. It's more stable, faster, and secure than any other windows OS to date! I am running it right now, and I must say good job to microsoft!


    BTW: Don't get into piracy here guys just a warning...

    WinXP MCE is just WinXP Pro with the media center applet added. If you don't have a PVR card that does it all from hardware, just forget it!

    LH build 4008 is crap. Do not even bother with it! Heck the last build was better! It's sooo alpha right now it's not even funny... I uninstalled it after 2 day's I believe.

    EDIT: Make sure you have the final version of Windows Server 2003 as it has some bug fixes, and other things...

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.
