You know how many of you feel so lost in Linux? Well... I feel the same way in XP. It is so clunky and unintuitive. Usually when I install XP for someone I get it to the point where it boots properly and load the codecs and any on-board firmware or driver requirements. Then it is theirs. Even that is a real chore compared to Linux. But to try to use it to do anything useful with, or configure it to my liking. Well... I finally gave up and will let it rest for a while until I get my patience back.
I just can't imagine having to use it on a daily basis to get any real work done. You long time Windows users/gurus are a lot smarter than this old dumb country boy. I can tell you that!
Oh well, just wanted to share my latest experience with Microsoft and Windows with you.
and that scary registry thing

Hummm... registry thing? You mean I have to register it somewhere first? Like you would for a particularly dangerous weapon or vicious dog? Maybe that is what I did wrong. Does this have to be done before you can purchase or use it? Do you get a certificate or license or something as proof that you are allowed to use it?
Anybody got a telephone number for the CIA, FBI, or where ever this has to be done?

Let me explain. Windows is so slow and bloated that if you leave it running for long the keyboard become hot and that uses lots of current. QED
