    WinXP is not just a service pack for 2k. It has many new features (like DLL protection and support for XPress link in the detonator XP's), not to mention it is much faster. My only problem is all the newbized control panels, etc. but you can turn those off.

    Heh...its not so bad if your just surfing but if you use it at work you might not want it sending confidential memo's to redmond. One has to ask the question of what else does MS have in store when .NET and subscription software get going? With MS having 90% of the market there is not a lot of room left to expand into so they need to change their system of profit generation, Can you imagine a scenario when your OS stops working when your monthly rental is late? Thats something I never want to have to worry about.

    As far as Microsoft OS's go I think WinXP is Uncle Gate's best yet. It is a good OS but my all time fav is Solaris 7...It makes an admin's job alittle easier.

    Windows XP is too new and still could stand a service pack yet. Windows 2000 is the best MS OS to date. 2k is not the most gamer friendly, but the games I ran on it worked fine (hey, I got my FPS fix with UT). XP is Windows 2000 for the Home user. The only reason I got XP is because it was $5 through college:D

    I think MS has geared XP waaaaay too much toward noobs than vets--which is fine until you realize what a pain in the ass it is to turn or remove much of the OS's stuff.

    XP is for the users that believe that AOL is the best thing since sliced bread. XP is a good OS, but it is highly overrated by people.
    It's just Windows 2000 with a face lift.

    Facelift... Yes
    Newb Oriented... Yes

    But let's take a look at another factor in this new system; namely, it is a Win2k with decent driver support! Crappy drivers is the main reason that I stuck with Win98SE. While the NT kernel is infinately more stable than the 9x one, the poor performance and overall problems that cropped up because of poor/no Win2k drivers kept a LOT of folks from it.

    WinXP is the promise that Microsoft made long ago... the merging of the NT kernel with the usability of a 9x platform.

    Don't get me wrong; the new OS needs a huge service pack pronto. But it is overall the best GUI based OS available, and has better driver support than anything in it's history.

    But I'll still stick with my answer to the poll...

    Even in a GUI world, the command-line is still here to stay.
    I'm not much of a DOS fan, but I do see it's uses. I just like some eye candy for me.

    My philophy: Dos may be/is dead, but the command line isn't.
