Though I use it daily, I'm not a big Windows fan. Still, I found myself talking up Windows XP when it arrived on my Dell.It's miles faster than 2000, which wasn't much faster than '98. But what intrigues me is that those bugs in the turn-of-the-century model seem to mostly be gone. Remember being frustrated by the dumbness of '00? Today, everything I ask for happens faster than I can request it. If you want to make settings for a Virtual Private Network, it asks, "Want to keep this for you or for anyone who uses it?" That is smart since we all share things. And you can easily download things that Microsoft discouraged you from doing before. I also love the fact they call things "e-mail," "internet," and "word," instead of Outlook, Explorer, and "choose a template." Can everybody say, "Anti-trust be gone?"
