Talking Windows XP Users - Come in please!

I just got Windows XP (hehehe) today, and I was just wondering, my fellow XP users, how long you have been using XP and what do you think of it. Do you like it or not? What's a problem on XP? etc. Thanks for your input!

5 months I guess and besides having more features, I couldn't feel much difference from the last version (Windows 2000). I love it though and I haven't encountered any major problems so far.

9 months and now I am used to it but it took 5 months or so.

the only good thing is that it takes less time to start up since it skips dos!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

about 4 months, sinc ei got my new comp...

i love it...i use media player to play my dvds, my dvd rips(DivX), to burn my cds, play my home videos etc! it integrates everything...and XP is so dayam fast !! the only problem is that some software isnt compatible with Xp seeing its so new and most software was based on earlier versions of windows.

Good luck to the Aussie and Balkan girls!

Go it last month, it's a good investment to buy into Alexis
Far more easy and accessible to use and plus shortcuts make it alot shorter.

Have fun with it

Ive had it for about 2 months now and i think its great

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

Thank you, everyone.

So far, XP is a whole lot faster for browsing on the net, and also the graphics improved dramatically. This really is better than Windows 98. Thanks again for your input guys.

Had it about 6 months a few problems with software compatability but nothing major.
