Whats odd is.. i've seen computers running SP1 for about a year upgrade to SP2.. then run horrible! but when I do a clean install of XP, I find that if upgrade to SP2 immediately, it runs perfectly..
True, I updated a computer recently to SP2 which was running fine on SP1 and it slowed it right down, a clean install later, and it worked fine....
We all love to hate microsoft, but then we all continue to use it, so what does that say about us?
Personally I have found using open source a great benefit, an example earlier, GIMP instead of Photoshop etc, even Open office, is giving Microsoft office a run for its money these days........
I won't be upgrading to Vista until its absolutely necessary, thats more from a really bad experience using RC1 where it killed my computer, it could of been something I have done, but I would rather upgrade in 12-18 months time, when the flaws have been ironed out
