I'm not impressed with the Genesi side of things, because it's the same thing it's always been.

What do you mean specifically?

W2k and not WinXP?  

Well, let me put it like this...
I wouldn't give you fifty cents for a full version of windows xp professional.
I think that says it clearly enough.

When I built my last computer, I said to myself....
I'm going to go out and get me a brand new upgrade to windows xp.
I was using 98 2nd edition at the time.

So I went out and bought a brand new upgrade.
Paid over one hundred american dollars for it.

There's one problem here now...
I build my own custom computers.

I format all the time.
I make system changes all the time.
I put various OS's on my computer sometimes, so I can boot whatever OS I want.

In other words...
I bought my computer parts custom from the case up.
Everything is hand picked exactly in the way that I want it.
I love the freedom of building my own computer.

That's where the problem came in.
Bill Gates doesn't see it the same way I do.
He thinks that even though I bought my own computer, it's not really my computer.

In other words....
You don't buy windows xp.
You rent it.

To make a long story short...

After a few times of changing my system around and a few times of low level formating my drives, xp pops a message up that said, and I quote:

"The serial number that you are trying to enter has been used too many times.
You must enter another serial number in order to proceed with installation".

I then took the windows xp that I had paid over 100 dollars for, and gave it to my son.

Now everytime he formats and reinstalls, he has to get on the telephone and call microsoft to obtain 30 or 40 digits to enter in before he can install.

I installed 2k on mine, and I don't have to worry about the communistic rule of windows xp.

So now you know why I choose 2k over xp.
