Finally, a fricken OS that stays stable for more than 2 hours. However, the constant 'send error report' shit makes you want to vomit all over your monitor and shit in your hard-drive.
Well, it's better than iMac and Windows ME

Fairly decent OS from Microsoft. More stable than most Windows versions, but has a number of privacy and end-user-rights issues that are questionable at best. Like all Windows builds, is often blindly flamed by idiots with no clue what an OS is or how it works, thinking MS sucks but not having any ideas how they would do it better.

Its Fisher-Price looking graphics do however fit in well, considering MS's tech support usually treats you like a toddler.
Its better than Win ME, thats for sure.

a computer that works fine. i have it and it never crashes. its awesome. just watch out for BSOD.
I once got a virus but it went away when i got AVG.
To some people, some people say ''windows xp is stupid'', well they should upgrade to Windows 7.
Windows XP user: my computer never crashes.
Mac OS X user: watch out for the BSOD!
Linux user: what he said!

A seriously stable operating system. The only reason it would crash, is if you dont know how to properly install new hardware, you built a computer yourself, but you mixed incompatible parts, or you have shitloads viruses and spyware, or because you were a jackass and messed with a program in a way it shouldnt be messed with.
Thankfully, you can turn off error reporting.
The average user: I have windows XP. Yes. Good.

Mac user: cool.

Linux user: Yeah..i'm hungry.

Linux fanboy: Wtf!! y would use dat piece of sh1t! j00 are a st00p1d N00b. It crfrashedc in like...2 minutes.

An OS that was decent from Microsoft in 2001. After years and years go on, you kinda keep Windows XP because you have it. This doesn't apply to those who use those fancy Macs or actually have Windows 7 or above and other shit, I'm not a techie. Anyways, why does XP treat me like a fucking 3 year-old?
In 2001:
" Look at me, my Window XP will suit my needs... of watching porn (WAT!!!)"

In 2013:
" I can update to Windows XP anytime now, wait why am I still in my parents basement???"

In 2025
"Still using Windows XP, *munch munch*

That 3D dog used to be cute a decade ago...
