[filmscanners] Re: OT: which wintel OS for digital imaging?



That may be true, I'm simply reporting my XPerience:(   I've uninstalled the
only driver that appeared to be giving XP fits, Colorvision's USB spyder,
and all other devices in use are supposedly compatible.  On my laptop XP
freezes occasionally (every two days or so) even when I only have Outlook
express open, it hangs sometimes when running Norton defrag, and things slow
down and become less stable too quickly after a thorough maintenance
routine.  I'm wondering if the system restore feature is bogging things
down.

I haven't had System Mechanic long, and I'm hoping it will help resolve some
of these issues as I become familiar with it.

Your system failures are probably the result of hardware problems, not
software.  No current version of Windows should freeze and crash "a lot,"
and any machine running Windows that does this probably has bad device
drivers (the most common cause), flakey trusted applications, or unreliable
or bizarre hardware.

It could be just my bad luck buying a Sony laptop with XP Home just after MS
decided to "fix" XP (the security issues primarily, as I understand it).  XP
phones home on a regular basis and I dutifully installed the "essential"
upgrades recommended by MS.  All I can tell you is this is the least stable
OS I have *ever* seen, it freezes and crashes    -A LOT-    much more than
Win 98 ever did in my experience.  The utilities I'm using have improved
things considerably (Norton and System Mechanic), but it's still very wonky
IMO, just too much crap and bloat.  I've heard XP Pro is much better -
almost as good as Win2K:)

I recently upgraded my 2 1/2 year old Dell box from Win 98 original ed to
Win 2000, and I am very impressed with Win 2K.  I like it best of any OS
I've used so far.

OK then Why? W2K    over XP -  Is this from experience have you used XP?
