Only if you're some kind of noob. I'm personally responsible for 100+ Windows XP/Server 2003 boxes, the majority of which have been running on the same installs for 4+ years. (Yeah, the hardware is getting old by now, but they're performing as well as they did when they were new.)

Maybe you should take into account that I'm not an IT manager. Also, I usually do a bunch of mods to a standard XP install: Turn off System Restore, Virtual Memory, indexing services, and such. But in regular use I don't really use windows anymore, but when I did I either used 2000 or XP and with the latter I would back up and reinstall the system every 3-4 months, just to make sure everything ran well . I also never needed anti virus, if I ever got a virus I just reinstalled the system over it.

But seriously, Windows XP out of the box has very poor memory management. It resorted to virtual memory on my Dell XPS model 1 even though I had 2GB of RAM, a whole 1GB which wasn't even put in use until I nixed virtual memory. USB stick writing was also a lot slower than on my Power Mac G4, which when I did the test was using 10.4.

I also had to constantly rebuild NTFS due to power spikes out here in the boonies (yes I have surge protectors, but cheap ones, I cant be bothered to spend $100 on a good APC), I eventually hacked my XP to run on exFAT which was much better

But I have never had to rebuild an HFS+ volume due to power spikes, although the spikes have all but disappeared after new power lines put in 2005 after Ernesto.

Need a part for a PC or Mac? PM me, I'll let you know if I come across it.

OS X trumps Windows on every level.

MorphOS, OS4 and Classic Amiga systems are the only ones who are real 'Amigas', not that joke AROS or Amiga Forever.

Have basically the same Mac Mini and Ubuntu blows. Bad performance. Bad graphic issues. The situation may have changed since the last Ubuntu release though.

No, you either want OK OSX performance on this machine or FAST MorphOS up and in there. If the license for MorphOS is already dealt with it's a real plus.

Windows 7 is light years ahead of anything else on the market. End of.

And I have and do use Mac , Linux , MorphOS and Windows

But lets not get into that arguemnt again. The post is about MorphOS on a MacMini (G4), windows does not run on it.

Out of interest have you tried to install older OWB version then?
