I've watched others use XP more than I ever used it myself. The
person was asked 2 or 3 times "do you really want to delete that
file?". And similar questions for any other commands that could be
semi destructive. Maybe it was their settings too????

No, but that is just one example of many other unneeded changes.

OK, Thanks.
Just curious about the inbuilt CD burning. Does that mean that with
XP you have the software built into the OS for burning CDs?
I see that as "ADDED SOFTWARE", not really an improvement in the OS,
but I'll wait and see what they really did before I make a judgement.

Yes, I do know it can handle more memory. You got a point there.

You won't ever use it. It stinks.

I use DeepBurner, as always.
