Question xp professional

i'm just curious how many of you are using the new windows version.
i'm using XP since yesterday and i have to say it's running smooth , 1 thing i noticed though was a drop in framerate
i went from 80+ fps in UT to 60/70+ fps..

my question is:
who is gonna use it and if you 're already using it what doo you think about the new os ??

thnx

found them, all 6 of them
but most of them are about the os itself and not how it is acting during gameplay (in this case UT)
--> and that's what i want to know

/me pokes his finger into Terminal's forehead.

You REALLY don't want me to treat you that way.

Dedmeat said: "XP does come with voodoo 5 drivers"

That's not my understanding. GLide doesn't seem to be supported on RTM or RC2.

DJRWolf said: "xp pro is bases on NT, try useing the 9x based xp."

That would be a good trick since there is no 9x based XP. Home Edition still uses the NT kernel - just doesn't have File Security (NTFS style) and a few other things that most Home users will never miss.

You-suk, thanks for using the search forums. I guess not all of us can be 1337-search-hax0rs like Terminal and get everything right the first time.
