uhh.. XP is crap, it has real bad compatability problems (check: half my computer isn't compatible with Windows XP), and the menu system and whole layout sucks, and is a blatent copy of Linux. I use Windows ME and never have had a problem with it, its never once crashed on me and my computer has an uptime right now of 43 days, 11 hours, 23 minutes and 9 seconds (its probably more now ha ha ha).
I think that the software you put on your HDD, and the way you treat your computer, and the hardware you buy, all adds up to why your version of windows crashes so much (i've never had any problem with any microsoft windows version, or any microsoft product, only XP and it not having drivers for my sound and graphics card.).

I had ME for about 2 years and I can't tell you how many times i just wanted to throw my pc against the wall because of everything crashing... netscape, ie, word, photoshop, fs2002 etc... you name it, it all crashed on me.
That's why I love my XP Pro. The built in compatability feature is great, I can play old games that had trouble even running on windows ME... wow. And not to mention the new multi-user, networking, ftp, and remote desktop features. Wouldn't give up XP for anything!

Hit 'PRINT SCREEN' and go into MSPaint or similar Graphics Editor and hit CTRL-V to paste the image and you're set.
As for computers go, I'm very faithful to 98SE. I never seem to encounter problems with it, so I stick with it. My bro has XP, which he likes, and if I ever feel the need to upgrade I will. But if it isn't broke, don't fix it.
