Thread: Best Os?

  1. #1
    I want to change my os from Win ME, to Win 2000 pro.
    Is 2000 a better OS than ME? I have only used ME so far, and I don't really think I could go to XP.
    (besides, I understand that you cannot share XP as you have to call them and confirm serial ect....??)
    I found Win 2000 on k-lite and am going to start downloading, but wanted an opinion first
    Also My version of Win ME Has some corruption, And I thought I could try Another one off K-lite, the file
    says its an "OEM" What is an "OEM"?
    Thank you B)

    it's all down to what your going to do with your system. If it's gonna be a games system where you play games on it all the time then i don't recommend 2000 and It was build for stability which mean reduced graphics and few drivers!

    On the other hand, i can see why you wanna change from Win ME because it's gotta be the worst OS ever built! it's the most unstable of all the Windows OS! but if your gonna use it for games then stick with ME as this has more compability with drivers and graphics etc.

    If at all possible get urself a copy of XP, i know microsoft haven't fixed all bugs, but it's gotta be the most stable next to Windows 2000 and for compability it's great!

    Win XP get's my vote!

    Yeah, I noticed that ME is WAY crash prone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    But I do play alot of games, so maybe sticking with it is a better idea.
    Can anybody tell me how to crack XP?
    I heard if you got it "shared" you have to Re-install it after 30 days?
    That is to say, if you got it off K-lite ect..........
    Oh ya, what is an OEM?

    dang! the internet is a damn jungle... you just cant be too careful...

    i just wanna say well done to NightCrawler who recommened the site: www.andr.net

    just wanna say that it's a damn good site and thanx for sharing it with people, but i was on the site no more than 2 mins an the site forced my comp to download a Dialer with a popup in my face!

    WARNING! if your going to look for a serial or crack from : www.andr.net then use a pop up killer and prevent the site getting the better of vunerable users!
