    How many of you Xp users use the new improved Xp UI? I find it to be very unintuitive, but I may just be set in my ways. I revert to the "classic" interface to get anything done. (truth be told I use the CLI a lot, too... ;))

    I resisted the Fisher Price interface for a long time, but I find that properly tweaked it isn't too bad

    I use the classic interface as well. When I put it on my parents computer, I left the Fisher Price interface on because it looked funner and maybe easier to use. Funny thing, the first time I heard it described as the Fisher Price interface by one of the IT guys at work.

    I still open a DOS window for file manipulation. Such is my fondness for GUIs in general.

    'improved'? hardly.

    i use the classic 2k interface. it's much less trouble to move around and you can actually find stuff.

    classic for me. Wife likes the FP, but is always saying she cannot find what she wants. " But it IS pretty" !

    "If it's pretty, but doesn't work nearly as well, then it's really not pretty." -FastVFR

    Classic for me. And no funny stuff with the Control Panel layout or with any Hidden files, either, bub!

    I set all the PC's I install XP to out of habit...and I have yet to hear any complaints about it!

    Best regards,
