Dual booting OS X Leopard and XP.

The XP is mainly just for the compilers and whatnot I need for courses.

I simply can't leave XP just yet :p. That's why I'm dual booting, Also, I don't have enough external memory transfer my files over to W7 because it only works as an upgrade to Vista.

If you just can't run it because of the Aero graphics, just get it anyways. You can have it turned off and it is awesome. I'm test driving it for my new computer I'm building.

XP SP2. Took'em a few years _after_ the official release to get it right but after 2 service packs and who knows how many goddamn updates they got it right.

Vista is absolute shit.

And I would rather have a drunken member of the Triads do acupuncture on me than touch Windows 7.

My PC...tri-boot: Ubuntu 7, XP MC, Vista HP

MacBook Pro...dual-boot: OSX Leopard, Vista HP


XP is by far the worst contemporary OS. Linux runs well and looks the best, but is a hassle to deal with. Vista runs well after UAC is turned off, but nothing special. OSX looks seamless, runs well, and has the best workflow.

...modes and scales are still useless.

And why is that? I've been running it for two weeks, no problems. If you ever get any, you get reason to make a dual boot.

my dorm computer is running Vista 64bit
my home computer is a ancient ****box running XP SP2 (because I can't be bothered to update to SP3)
my fileserver is running Debian Linux because I like having access to a command prompt to mess around with
