XP will assimilate me

By tech ·
Looks liek I'm going over to the darkside and moving to XP. Is there a website that lists known hardware and software conflicts for the new OS? I want to figure out how much scotch to stock..........

Hardware compatibility is a BIG issue with XP as there don't seem to be very many drivers out there yet. A couple of other worthwhile sites to check are:

http://www.tweakxp.com/tweakxp/

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/expertzone/

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/home/using/tips/default.asp

(The last one is for Home edition, but from the XP home page you can go to professional tips as well) Check out the article titled Choosing between NTFS, FAT, and FAT32 as it could affect how well your older software will work on XP--keep some partition space available as FAT32 just in case!!

Have fun with it!!
