Windows versions I used are 95,98 2000 and XP and my fav is defenetly XP followed by 2000.

I passionatly hate all Win9x derivates now.


Win9x: n.
32 bit extensions and a graphical shell for a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a 4 bit microprocessor, written by a 2 bit company that can't stand 1 bit of competition.

A friend showed me his, he typed :-

10 Print "Hello"
20 goto 10

Then he typed 'run' and the screen filled with hello's. I was amazed that 2 simple lines did that. I went and bought my first computer next morning.


LOl! I did that with my first one, a Vic-20. :lol:
Except that I used cuss words instead of "hello" and thought, "How cool - I am a computer programmer!" :lol:

I copied the code from a Computer magazine for a game, took me 3 weeks to complete (I'm a slow typist) and guess what happened when I hit "run"?
You got it right.....

how did you ever work that out???? i thought that was rocket science and no1 would ever work it out :P :P

i actually thought the mouse was the main thing.... :P :P

your processor just determines what OS you can run, you need somet good 2 run XP, and ram helps obviously

but i would'nt go with your intel... :P :P
