this desu
XP started a cancerous trend of pandering to consumers and conditioning them to expect a major UI revamp of the operating system every three years, even if the resultant revamp was half-assed or otherwise poorly designed

Hopefully the minimal trend introduced with 8 and 10 will linger long enough to mature, and then maybe we can finally put Win2k behind us as the poster child for the apex of Windows UI design.

You do realize that means you're harddrive is failing, r-right?

Better save that porn (and stop the WinXP hate)

who even cares about the slightly different UI, XP SP2 was the first Windows where the security wasn't a joke

DEP, ASLR, a firewall, hooks for AV so they didn't have to hijack the entire OS to work
>>
>>52641930
Noice. I knew about the firewall and AV but not the former two.

Hey mekon, the best operating system of all time is AmigaDOS.

However, I think we can agree that XP with service pack three was the best version of Windows.

XP is great, I just really dislike that they did away with DOS

I still tie feelings to Win9x because of those reasons

>I just really dislike that they did away with DOS
I remember being so pissed about that. DOS was my first love. Still miss it, every now and then.

My God I remember this was the sample song from Windows Media Player on my copy of ME

My family had a computer since windows 3.1/DOS6.2 and we went straight to 98, but MY first computer was ME.
