    anyone else get it?
    my girl got a new computer and it came with it. it's different. im wary of change and hate microsoft, but hey. it's a fuckin free (to me) super computer, so I can't complain a whole lot.
    so does anyone else have it? figure it out? hate it?
    any thoughts/feedback?
    i havent played with it enough yet to really have an opinion, but i'm sure someone else on here has and does.
    lets hear it.

    OH God! The PC vs. Mac holy wars....

    Anyway, I hear there is some sort of "online activation." Like it doesn't work if you don't pay for it at some Microsoft website with your credit card. Whatever, I'm gonna at least find out.

    i got a copy of XP pro about 6 weeks before its public release date. There is no online registration with this one but this is a copy that was given to microsoft employees and then got pirated over the intrenet so that may explain the no registration. I like it. I mean its alot different from my last OS(win98). I am still learning the software but its not bad.

    i really like it.
    its good to have when more than one person is using the computer, because you can really personalize your desktop.

    At work it's all about NT

    I love the simplicity and pure function of NT.
    The disolving menubars of ME drive me crazy.

    ive heard that security on pirating XP is tighter than my girls ass
    like you can only put it on one computer therefore making you buy multiple copies at whatever sum of money they go for...rat bastards at microsoft!

    when, that wasn't the case with my copy...my friend that gave it to me has burned almost 50 copies of it for other people and has had no other problems..but like I said this was a pre released version made available to microsoft employee's so that may explain it....if I talk to him tonight I will post the ftp that he got it from if its still up.
