Windows XP - Windows XP

If you're a gamer, WinXP is a good deal easier to set up than 2k. It ships with native support for all the latest goodies, Nvidia Detonator 12.40 is there, as is native support for the VIA chipsets! Hurrah! Goodbye 4-in-1s! For you non-Nvidia people out there (yes, both of you..j/k) there's also support for the Radeon, most Matrox cards, And the Voodoo 3/4/5. Users of the Voodoo2 are left in the cold however, as there is no native support. WinXP ships with DirectX 8.1, so basically, if you install XP fresh, you wouldn't have to install a thing to play say, Half-Life on your GeForce. This is all part of Microsoft's OOBE (Out-Of-Box-Experience) scheme, obviously aimed at noobies.
