Default XP Upgrade trouble

I also think Win 3.11 was the best OS ever developed. It's design and =
quality that makes a good OS. Win ME was the pinnacle of it's design. XP =
fails the test in so many ways.

One example is nslookup. It does not support the /? or -help commands. =
Half of the command lines use unix notation (with a few going 100% and =
being case sensitive) while the rest use MS-Dos notation. Some commands =
have MS-Dos smartness with parsing (eg only one switch starts with a =
then /a is all you need type for /all) while others are really dumb (if =
it says /averylongthing then one must type it in full). A second thing =
is when right clicking toolbar buttons. MMC and Help Viewer programs =
place commands, useless commands at that, where the standard windows =
commands should be. A third thing is the partial removal of right click =
edit menus - all go or none go.

ME was the best design. XP has many heritages, Unix, NT, Win 3.1, Win =
9x, OS/2, MS-Dos (and earlier versions could run programs written for =
any of them), and CP/M. It was designed by the designer of minicomputers =
(we're micocomputing but the terms are meaningless now) OSs and is =
really a mismash.

However Win 3.1 was just great. Unlike component software (makes =
programmer's life's easier) everything was designed to meld with =
everything else. We haven't had that since. Even ME, the best since, was =
flakey.

First I have no reason to spread lies. I am not associated with anyone =

who would profit from XP sales. And you still didn't answer the =
question. I guess ignoring the question is a lot easier than answering =
it. And I guess myself and all the techs I have talked to from Best Buy =
and Circuit City and Comp USA along with the people at TechTV are all =
telling lies. You are the only one who is telling the truth. Fine =
whatever, you are still using XP insted of ME when you could of bought =
ME. I can't imagine why you would do that when you had a choice and you =
claim ME is the best. You are saying whatever it takes to get the last =
word. I'd expect more from someone who was born in 1960. But I was born =
in 1956 and I know your type all to well. I am done waisting threads on =
you, your not worth it! Nick

Greetings --

Sorry to interrupt the ****ing contest, but I thought I'd
interject a little info:

I've never seen TechTV, but I do know that the "techs" at CompUSA,
Best Buy, & Circuit City are pretty much the last people in the world
I'd listen to when it comes to computer advice. The wages those
retail outlets offer would attract only those incapable of getting a
decent paying job in the mainstream IT sector. Any potentially
competent technicians in these stores would be there only long enough
to get a little entry-level experience, before moving on, after a few
weeks, to a real job.

Don't tell lies you piece of ****. You do need your head punched in. It =

cost base and marketing lies which you dribble here.
