Of course WinXP is a pain in the butt to install. Download any linux distro from 11 years ago and tell me how easy that is to install.


Redmond Desktop Linux was a breeze to install. You even got to play solitaire while it did its thing.

And yes, I installed that around the same time I did a test install of WinXP. Neither survived - WinXP because I couldn't stand it, RDL because it didn't have any developer tools so it wasn't of much use.
