Can you stop making new threads for this. Continue it in your first thread, thanks.

well 2000 IS unsupported and running an os without proper support is just asking for trouble.

How about because XP 64 bit isn't really XP. What it basically is is Server 2003 with a XP skin, hence the reason no SP3. If and when Server 2003 gets another SP, so will XP 64 bit; which by the way won't be happening unless it comes out before July 13 this year,

I bought Windows 7, 'cause frankly, I was a bit tired of XP. I liked the Windows 7 GUI, and I heard nothing but raves about it.

Since people still use 2000, I'll give it till 2015 before a more than significant (70%) percentile of users are on 7.

xp will work for as long as there is hardware that can be run by it if you don't connect it to the internet

And we'll all be on Windows 8 or 9 by then.

i agree windows 7 is the first os from microsoft i didn't immediately load up a new shell so that i could have the features i really wanted. sure im missing a few things but for the first time i feel like the features i would lose are worth more than the ones i would add.

Audio fades when recording
Hi so I have looked around but haven't found a solution to my problem. When I record audio it seems the microphone is cutting out at a certain sound level. So if I hold a note on a guitar instead of fading away to nothing about halfway through the note the sound drops out abruptly. It seems like...

Recycling a movie from my harddrive is taking long long time.
Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?

OK...so this seems pretty strange...I think it might be software, but I suppose it could be hardware. After awhile and at random occurences the audio balance will unexpectedly shift to the right. The settings don't actually show the audio balance moving right, but it clearly happens. I've had...
