It's not that I'm ashamed of using XP...

just dont use ANY other Win and you´ll be fine ! ;p
without meaning to be overtly suspicious about archives stored on filesharing sites, what exactly is this? :)

Nah... Tried bootskin once on XP... PC kept restarting after the boot screen, a bit crappy for my taste.

You should be ashamed of running XP! It's a really old OS! Get with the times hombre!

Too lazy to install Win7. And too lazy to install Ubuntu and run my games in Wine...

I'm with XP aswell, closing to 3 years without a reinstall. Avast+Spybot are my friends. I think I'll stick with it until I get a new pc.

getting that XP-install back after installing Win7 was a major_pain_in_the_old_ass !
just dont forget about the hidden partition and copy all your xp-boot-files over there ;) also add some line to inform your bootloader about that xp-insta !
well, i WOULD delete Win7 if i wouldnt know i would have even more "fun" reinventing XP on that hd afterwards !
most-annoying: having no sounddriver that lets me use Headphones under Win7 ! ( altho its the same installer and such as under XP ! strange shit -> m$ )
Coming from RiscOS, WinXP was the only micro$oft OS i could bear (and i wanted to watch dvds and have a bit more power, else i would have kept RiscOS). Vista is a shit with rare bugs (file with negative size, alphabetical sort of filesize ie 11 000<12, useless toolbars, ...) and 7 looks like vista and has memory/power hungry features i dislike. I really miss my 2mb rom RiscOS! RIP. :(

So i also stick with XP, though i'll try linux soon...

changing your windows boot screen is like putting stickers at your car's bumper.

I use power saving mode on XP. boot time = 2 seconds :)

Yeah, the kit car version.

Still on xp here.. although that's totally down to it running 95% of the time in a VM with limited memory. Otherwise I'd move to win7.

I would still be on XP, but i bought a new laptop which came with 7, and 7 runs nicely on it, and I like it, so no need to downgrade.

Oswald - I use hibernate, which takes about 5 seconds to restore.
I'd still be using win98 if it didn't need a reboot every couple of hours...
