    I'm getting a new computer for christmas, its Windows XP.

    I need to know people's opinions on the best software to use.

    I messed up this computer and now I hate it.

    I don't want to do the same thing I did before.

    (ex: best downloading music software, best listening software, etc.)

    [color=cc0000]Well, for music, i'd say Songspy, or Kazza. Both of them you can download music and they have their own player, so you dont need to download 2 programs.[/color]

    XP is compatible with every new piece of software being released--even 90% of games. Trust me, it's been ready.

    Though, I must warn you that you must buy hardware that says "BUILT FOR WINDOWS XP" on it, otherwise it won't work. Hope I helped. :)

    Sorry to stop your roll Akuma...but Winamp 3 still has a few bugs when being used on XP...

    If you download that...be careful...or you could wait until the bugs have been sorted...

    I'll help you too:

    Music: W.M.P (windows media player-use this until winamp gets sorted...then D/L that)
    Graphics: PSP7 or Photoshop
    Downloading: EDonkey, WinMX or Kazza...or all three (I prefer EDonkey but I have WinMX too)
    Burning: The latest version of Nero

    NORTON SYSTEM WORKS-this one is a biggy-almost a neccesity but you can just get any other anti-virus...but this one's best and it comes with many other tools like speed-disk...

    Isobuster, Winace and WinRAR all help too...

    Good luck :D :D
