The Urge To Upgrade

25 February 2002 15:18

I was contemplating of doing a test install and upgrade of my Windows 2000 Professional operating system to Windows XP this afternoon but then decided not to when I realized that I don't have the complete set of drivers and XP compliant software for some of the devices in my machine, namely the Broadlogic AB2030 Satellite Express broadband card and the AsusLive program that would enable the video-in functionality on the video card (so that I could watch tv on my computer screen). You're wondering why am I compelled to upgrade when everything is just peachy and I'm able to do everything just fine on my current setup and configuration. One key reason is that Windows 98 is still living on my machine and I'm really itching to get rid of it. I can't at the moment since I still need it to be able to run FastTracker 2.08 to do some MOD/XM compositions (Yes! I still do MODs/XMs instead of MIDI!). To date I still haven't found any decent MOD/XM editor in Windows. Also, I'm getting tired of having to boot into Win98 everytime I want to play Frogger (Hey! It's a fun game!). Besides, getting rid of Win98 would mean that I can regain some one additional gig of hard disk space. Speaking of which, my hard disk is in need of some major housekeeping and also repartitioning. One thing at a time, dude! One thing at a time...
