Well, at least someone else has issues with XP...

i can understand why people will use older OSes, like how i use win2k as my main OS still (though comes in useful for version testing, etc by using something different from others) but in those cases it's time to admit that you can't run the latest of things and have to make that compromise (i know it's possible to get custom winamp installs made from new+older versions but that's a nightmare to control and ensure it's all version checked right)

Again, glad someone understands why I still run Win98SE:

It is so easy to 'get under the hood' and tweak or fix things; not like XP and that crummy 'Recovery Console'.

Plus it runs *everything* released up to about 2005 and all of my old game favorites without any issues.

I've actually patched to have files greater than 4GB, Universal USB support, DST fix, etc... It's solid and way faster than XP (with all of its bloated overhead).

Anyway, I'm not here to discuss OS merits; 5.34 works fine. I see no mention that Win98SE is no longer supported by Winamp; 5.35 has the issues I mentioned.

'nuf said.
