    "Windows XP sucks,SLIMDRIVERS a cool remedy,"

    February 9, 2013  |   By bells420

    Version: Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3 2.0

    Pros

    slimdrivers filled in all the missing blanksand in minutes,to do what was becoming futile to me, AND IT worked!iwas killing my compyter just to find XPS d---sound,SATA,IE,..etc. drivers!SUDDENLY SOUND!also no ******** with regisration and gimmicks,i dont mind being asked to pay but please dont lie offer solution and then rub my face in it. I resent spending time and MBS downloading and hoping only to hit a brick wall,and waste more time to remove all the hoobajala ,which slimdrivers cleaner also makes a no brainer.

    Cons

    some difficulty targeting slimdriver its self you think you clicked on it and end up with something that wont go away..

    Summary

    solution freindly enough if your broke and the hard ware wizard hates you,if you can find the tree through the spam forest.refreshing not to be led on and dumped in the end

    "Windows xp sucks ass"

    October 19, 2011  |   By Windows7fan527

    Version: Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 3 2.0

    Pros

    what pros?

    Cons

    Slow and unresponsive, terrible interface, lack of custmizations, and bsod's

    Summary

    It amazes me that people actually like windows xp (kinda like how people actually like macs).I would rather use windows vista than xp and we all no vista was a disaster. Go with windows 7. It cost alot more (still cheaper than a mac however) and doesn't lock up on you and it is alot faster than winbloze xp (unless you run it on crappy hardware)
