probably could perfect for that though. Don't think that would be very helpful for a couple of years though. hmmm. I like windows.. even without service pack 2, it works fine. And I can't imagine anything other than minor improvements.
I guess here is my list of improvements / bugs that I have noticed in Windows :
1> When you are changing the protection status (readonly) and trying to delete it, you have to follow a strict sequence of things when doing so. It is so redundant and retarded I have forgotten by the time I run into that problem again. And then I hvae to go through the whole dang thing to find out the sequence.
2> There should be an advanced control panel feature that gives you easy menu-style access to some more advanced features.
3> Adjust memory settings for Windows/Internet Explorer, and NOTEPAD for crying out loud. I could easier load a 10MB or larger file in notepad better on Windows 98 than on any recent app. XP had poor memory management for a lot of programs of theirs. (e.g. I have 512MB and a 10MB document is chicken scratch to that)
Plus, Internet Explorer crashes simply because of lack of memory. Most people don't realize how good a browser IE is and how extensible it is. If you go in and tweak the amount of memory it uses, IE is so much more stable.
4> Another issue related to memory and resources.. Sometimes the program explore.exe will take up 99% of resources and basically slow my machine down to a halt. You can't shut down that explore.exe (it's the shell one that normally works in the background). Basically you just have to restart your computer.
it does this randomly (very rarely) but for no reason (completely unprovoked, I hadn't hit my computer in several hours)
Anyways, that said, I like my XP. It is very stable indeed and I always have 20 apps running at same time with no problems.
So that said, I can't at the moment say that at the moment it would be worth while to upgrade my OS, but then again, I don't really know anything about the OS as far as specs go.

I'm pretty sure you can end explorer.exe To start it up again, start a new task through the task manager and type in "explorer" It will start up again! This is useful for frozen desktops or windows.

they have to compile the source code to x86_64 bit instead of x86_32 bit
My opinion is that windows XP is stable enough. The only issue that comes to mind is 64-bit. Somebody told me that 64-bit version of XP has problems with drivers. dunno..
