There must be at least a few reasons that WinXP sucks less than the rest of them. I have it myself and there is good reason for that. I knew I was on the razors edge when i put that out there. You are probably right, and I don't disagree...It has worked great for me and still does when it wants to. I hold it above the rest because it is tried and true. It is just pissing me off right now so I am at war with the damn windows explorer in XP. I have some great thing's in my dox and it knows I want to read/watch them and it's playing "chase the chicken game" with me, so I aint really on good terms with my own version.
