About a month ago. I took the plunge and installed Windows XP x64, I won't be using anything else for some time. Solid as a rock :)

It has been a long time since I don't feel like burning cds as backup, nor re-partition and move all files into that section. I'm looking for an external harddrive, and then i'll prolly have a nice clean format

It must be getting close to 2 years for me. I'm thinking about doing it again this xmas when I'm on holiday.

So much stuff to backup first?:((

On my main PC 4 and a bit years.

Old laptop, use sometimes, has 95 10 years.

I was also thinking of doing a format in 2006, January, but however, if sp3 comes out say May, then I will hang on till then any later then Jan holidays.
