I currently have a number of computers running Windows XP that I would like to update.
I've been frantically trying to build a computer this year so that I would have XP installed before doomsday (April 8th). Although I had searched for some solution to installing XP after that date, I didn't find any until I had it all ordered.
I've been following Harkaz's Service Pack 4 project since I discovered it in March, and it's amazing, but I wonder if it's really the best for my purposes.
I now have XP installed on all of my computers, so I don't need to make installation media or anything, and I know SP4 can be installed on a live system, but
- I now see there are other projects here with a similar purpose, but I don't understand what the real differences are between them. Can they all be installed on live systems?
- I want to continue getting updates (from POSReady 2009 of course), but would the simple registry tweak be enough for my purposes, or are one of the projects here better?
- I know some of them include hotfixes that I'm guessing Microsoft wouldn't normally push to all users. Would the extra hotfixes in these packs be beneficial for the average user?
The theme of this Web site changed as I wrote this.
I like the old black theme better personally. It's not common to have a black, or even dark background, but it's much easier on the eyes!
It'd be nice if there was an option to change it back, at least for registered members.
