    Alright blackhatters I've been lurking for the past few weeks and learning a bunch of stuff. So here's what I am going to give back.

    A few weeks ago I got infected with a bad piece of spyware so I decided to reformat. I came across WINDOWS XP ULTIMATE Just go to TPB and search for it.

    It uses an XP core, but has display options for a Mac Gui, Linux, Vista, XP, and Windows classic! If your sick of windows, you can switch to a mac interface. It's really nice. I am using it on my desktop and laptop. Ideally you need at least 1GB of RAM to run this smoothly.

    ****NOTE: I DO NOT ENDORSE PIRACY. YOU SHOULD HAVE A LEGIT COPY OF WINDOWS XP BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT TO INSTALL THIS****

    That is all!

    This reminds me of the old saying: "You can't shine shit." ... So what, you make XP pretty and waste more RAM doing so, what good is that? If you want to remain spyware free boot with a ubuntu live cd, try it out. If you like it install it... It has a pretty WM and doesn't eat as much ram. :D

    my 2cents:

    I need to use windows because it has visual studio and C# is my favorite programming language, so what I do now is make 2 partitions, one for data, one for the OS, and keep incremental backups of the OS partition using norton ghost so If things get screwy I can just go back to one of my early backups where I have fresh installs of everything, so it's a lot easier than reformatting

    1gb on ram.... :S .... Destroys the purpose.


    Damn I went to a gaming version of XP Pro just last week and it only uses 68mb just to run it with Vista addons..
