Windows 2300 FIG!!!!!

Is there any reason for this OS to exist. I currently can not afford a copy of XP and I'm stuck with this shiot. This is the absolute worst I have ever seen! No Quicktime, no video games...worthless!

Is that supposed to be 2003? If so, there is a reason you don't like it: you are not the target audience. It isn't meant to be a gaming/multimedia OS. Never has been, never will be. You are in the target audience for XP.

Isn't 2003 a server OS?

You can buy a legit copy of XP Pro for like $90. Maybe even cheaper.

Windows XP Home SP2 Upgrade

There is the link, which is for the Upgrade version. It's 99.99 out of pocket at the store, with a mail-in rebate.

And even still I couldn't imagine how 2003 would be cheaper then XP.

Uh, yeah, there's plenty of reason for it to exist (presuming you are referring to 2003). It's a server OS, used strictly for business applications, where you wouldn't want Quicktime or video games to be installed.

Do you also complain about your bicycle not being suitable for intercontinental travel?
