    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.)

    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.

    So... I'll keep searching for a place called home.
    I'll rip my roots from this earth into the unknown.
    Is it for the dreams I chased or the ones I caught?
    This mystery, this misery is killing me.
    So, now, I'll leave behind a murder scene.
    My life isn't real; it's just s silhouette.
    And, when the sun goes down, I won't exist.

    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

    I have Windows XP and use Winamp 3 without the slightest problems.
