XBox fans, I'm not trying to start a war I just thought this was funny.

Keep in mind I keep my Wife very well informed as to what is going on in the game industry. She is kind enough to not complain when I want to get something new (which seems like all time lately).

While sitting down for breakfast we were discussing the upcoming potential purchase of Windows XP my when my wife said "I suppose you have to get the XBox to get that too." This is my opinion was priceless. If left me on the floor laughing. Posted Image

Thats a classic. My girlfriend makes fun of me wanting a "pursecube" as she calls it.

Haha! Pic is pretty big for this little spoof, but it looks like an official ad.

Andre- If you're serious about getting Windows XP, you might wanna read this: http://ptech.wsj.com...h-20010705.html

If you did your research on XP then it's nothing new, but I did learn some new things from the article.

How about a little more up to date article, seeing as MS has eased up a little bit: http://www.wininform....rticleID=22367

Not to get too off topic, but as long as any form of "product activation" exists it's a lousy upgrade. Next thing you know, MS will require separate online accounts for each X-box in the household. Posted Image

If you don't want to deal with "activating" Windows XP, just get the corporate version. Ahhh the privilages of being an IT drone, "BETA" testing the Company's MS Select copy of Windows XP.

Graeme,
Thanks for the article. It was informative. Kind of funny to see Microsoft back track a little based on public opinion.
