So I turned on my desktop machine for the first time this year.
Remembered I bought a sound card for it. Put that in.
Then registered Windows XP over the phone because I actually bought software for once.
And my god.
I am so in love with it.
Very smart, though very evil, people made this.
It's fully documented, previews EVERYTHING, rollbacks system changes, order prints like iPhoto, let's you lockdown the taskbar and best of all..
CLEARTYPE. I adore it. Finally, the jaggy shackles on webpage text have been lifted.
At least for me. Love it. Love it. Love it.
