Default Installing Windows sucks...

on my laptop. Actually, installing windows itself wasn't bad. But finding/downloading the drivers is sloooooowwwww..... Lenovo'* site has a horrible transfer rate. And, I still need to do Windows Update...

I got tired of the few things I couldn't do with Ubuntu Linux on my laptop, so I'm switching her back to XP.

Getting rid of the drive image MSU put on my HD on my Dell D600 was the best thing i've ever done. Laptop is so fast again. 1.2gigs of memory helps too on a 1.3ghz centrino...
