    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 :D , 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
     
  2. you may want to do a forum search for that. its been done, and more then once. ;)

    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.

    "Lighten up Francis" :mad:

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

    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. :cool:

    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. :rolleyes:
     
  15. are you so sure? go for it if you want, i really dont care. I dont take things so personally.
    just dont poke me, now THAT i dont like nor the inferance you are making form that quote. were someone to REALLY did that to me he'd regred it, and seriouslly.
    fortuantly my name isnt even CLOSE to fancis so i can ignore it as childish and petty.
