It crashed randomly at first, then stabilized as time went on. (Did a few tweaks of course, but still not sure what fixed it) That's the weirdest crash profile I've ever experienced but I'm not complaining
BTW do you think it's worth it to pay M$ for its bloatware? Our house has run exclusively on warez until I bought XP
The hardest person to convert over to legit stuff was actually my father, would you imagine
I have been using XP since it was released and have installed SP1. My experience has been excellent with XP. Faster boot times. Virtually no crashes. What has amazed me is that my older programs all ran without incident. I have newer hardware so I really had no driver problems either.
Boot time seems a little quicker with SP1. This is subjective as I never thought to time it.
