Er, yeah, I thought that was the point? ;)
Enthusiasts will always choose something new or something other than Windows. In most cases XP Home will do everything you require from it. Most new machines today will come installed with Vista Home Premium though, unfortunately. With Windows 7 on the horizon, come Christmas there should be Windows 7 machines everywhere for sale.Quote:

If you need just the OS a few places still stock/sell XP. Google is your friend.

I think, Ubuntu(Kubuntu, Xubuntu) or Mandrive is better for you, because its freeware and you need no pay for Windows-linece. I think so, that you would like to set all properties, but not a part, like in Windows.
I use Ubuntu 9.04, than you may ask me about.
Thanks for care.
I think OS/2 Warp is the best OS for you
For my parents (bit of word processing, digital photos, web and email) it's Ubuntu. Why? Central repository for all the software they need + patches.
Ubuntu reduced parental tech support calls to less than 3/year.
Well ive got OSX on my home PC and one of my work PCs. Xp on the other work PC. Windows7 on my laptop, and tinyXP on my old laptop/netbook.
TBH i cant wait for my HD to come back from WD so that i can get windows back on my home PC. OSX is driving me up the wall. Its great in alot of ways but one massive thing puts me off; the mouse! It just feels so clumbsy and slow. (Oh and while we're at it the keyboard; layout and missing keys! grr) And as has been said, i dont want to wait while a VM/other OS loads just so i can have a quick play on a game/do something i take for granted on Windows.
Reason i went for OSX is for music production but after many months of playing i cant find any reasons why its better for me; Propellerheads Reason is exactly the same program regardless of which OS its on...
