With the fast computers that are available these days, do people still go through the optimizing XP for music production thing?
I'm just wondering... I did it for my Pentium 3 1 gig ram system years ago, but I just purchased an AMD 64 4200 X2 dual core system and was wondering if people are still doing this for the newer setups.
I do, although my best machine is just a 2.4G P4 (w/HT). I just do it as a matter of course, it's pretty much habit by now. The standard XP install is loaded up with so many extra programs and services that it can't but help.
