First of all, it’s still months away from being completed, so I shouldn’t have expected much from it. Second, there is hardly anything available right now that can run on this new platform. This includes hardware products like CD burners and scanners, etc.
Anyway, I got it installed and could run Microsoft software ok, but nothing else. Also, there were certain Microsoft packages that wouldn’t even run on WinXP! The most shocking one was MSN Messenger! Sheesh.
So what did Paisano do? I reformatted and installed Windows 2000 Professional on my computer right away! It was time for a major cleanup anyway. I had too many dead and useless programs installed anyway. Even after you uninstall programs, they leave remnants behind. My system is kicking and screaming now. It is sweet, indeed.
So hold off on Windows XP until the year 2002. They should have MOST of the bugs out of it by then. 🙂
