On a cold dark winter night..

.. hidden by the stormy light, a battle rages for the right for what will become..1

Alright guys,

been here for about 5 years now and I always hated Microsoft’s Windows XP. Oh, I hated it so much.. One might ask why and IMHO the answer to this question is pretty simple: Phoning home.

Yes, I don’t like this. I don’t like this, because the idea that someone tracks my habits. So, I never ever wanted to install that OS onto my hard disk.

But on the other hand I had my Windows 2000 Professional2, lacking support for Dual-Core-CPUs: everytime I printed a page and afterwards turned off the device, I got a BSOD3 telling me about a “BAD_POOL_CALLER” which actually shouldn’t happen when SP4 and UR1 are installed..

So, I had the choice: waiting for Vista Home Premium and ignoring the BSOD till its release or switching to Windows XP.. – I’ve choosen the latter and now, after 5 years, I have to rectify my opinion about this OS.. Damn, this kicks ass.. :D

Lastly, if everything goes on as expected, there will be a special Xmas-present for all Firefox-lovers out there.. :)

Martin.. :)
