I’ve just installed WindowsXP. Just installed over the top of a pretty stable Windows2000 – and it just worked. Even the local Apache and PHP install are working fine. The DirectCD software and ZoneAlarms software barfed up their cookies – but both of these have a duplicate in WindowsXP itself. It must be difficult for utility vendors in niche areas to compete with the Microsoft OS juggernaut.
Its pretty, and I have yet to find “the one thing” that would never make me use Windows2000. I must say it feels faster. It’s difficult to spend time looking at all the new features at once; but coming from Windows2000 everything seems in its logical place
The Christmas/New Year break is nearly upon us. I think that my projects will be related to C# (the Microsoft language & environment) and some other “unannounced Adobe products”
