I know many people have seen the change boot screen for Windows Xp after getting Windows Xp Service Pack 2. So what do you think of it? Like it or not?

I personally don't like it, you pay all this money for it to say Professional under Windows Xp and it doesn't anymore, only thing I like is there's no copyright date anymore, lol.

Comments are welcome.

I like it. Looks clean and professional. :)

By the way, I didn't pay for Pro just to see it say "Professional" on the boot screen. :p

If you really did pay for Pro, you pay for the extra features. If you paid for the simple boot logo, you got screwed.

I've always wondered why the flah logo on the bootscreen is low-res, any ideas of why it is that way? It seems to me that they would atelast make it look cleaner.

It's low res becausee if it's too high some monitors will just show white/black.

Anyone have a screenshot of it? :p

It's shown with a low resolution so that it works on older computers.

It's the same logo, with the home/professional wording removed. They want to make XP simply XP. It's a unifying of the product, of sorts.

It is better because the dates are corrected so we feel like xp is secure. FEEL being the keyword. Also I like how they changed xp home and pro to just xp. Now you home users don't have to feel so cheap :p :D When is SP3 coming out???
