So I have a few older PC's lying around and decided to get a couple of them up and running. These are both older P3 boxes with 256mb of RAM. First I install Linspire on one. It was up and running in 15 minutes. I really have no need for a Linux box but someone gave me a disc with Linspire and i was curious. It's pretty cool I guess if you like Linux. Next I installed WinXP Home from a disc I downloaded and burned on my Mac. The disc has XP Home, Pro and Media Center editions on it. I won't go into specifics but none of the keys I had worked with SP2 version of XP Home. So I look around for a way around the stupid Microsoft validation shit, and promptly ended up with at least 3 viruses. Go windows! :arrrh: And of course my OSX Tiger install took about 30 minutes and all I had to do was swap cds when prompted. No keys to enter, no websites to validate. If I didn't wanna play Everquest from time to time, I'd throw this fucking Windows box out my bedroom window. I've NEVER had a problem free Windows install.
