    I'm runing WinXP Pro currently.My question is which OS would be perfect for my PC specs:

    Intel Pentium 4 , 1.8 GHz
    256 RDRAM
    GeForce 2 MX/MX 400 64 MB
    ASUS P4T Motherboard
    Samsung 40 GB HDD (7200 rpm)
    Creative Soundblaster PCI 128
    Lucent (Agere) 56 kb/s PCI Data/Fax Modem
    Rockwell/Conexant 56 kb/S HCF PCI Data/Fax Modem (yes, I have two crappy 56k modems )
    Samsung CD-R/RW 40x/12x/40x
    Samsung DVD 16x/48x

    And don't tell me to switch of some gfx settings in WinXP pro, I want a new OS which fitts my PC specs.

    :gunsmile:

    Trying to convince someone is one thing.................lying to them is another.

    Now we all know nothing with a Windows Logo will ever work flawlessly.

    2000 Pro is lighter and more efficient IMO and without all the unecessary bloat.

    Oh ok makes sence I&#39;m sure the memory requirements are much lower too .


    http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/profe...eqs/default.asp

    While I swear by XP PRO here&#39;s some info .

    Love this : At least 64 megabytes (MB) of RAM; more memory generally improves responsiveness.

    peatmoss, it SAYS 64mb, but so did XP, and u don&#39;t see anybody with 64mb of ram running XP do you? lol. 2000 is also a resource hog. Both can be tweaked down to use the same amount of ram if you want to, and XP will be better then too.

    While all microsoft OS are crap, i agree Shn, windwos XP is microsoft&#39;s most stable OS (for workstations). i&#39;ve seen 2000 freeze a few times, lock ups and crap are less often than 98 and me, but they do occasionally happen. XP, on the other hand, I haven&#39;t seen freeze EVER. It automatically restarts the explorer service, recovers all of your open crap, and continues as if nothing happened (but it gets annoying if it happens a lot, still better than complete lockups.

    Linux probably never locks up either, right?
