    XP ok?

    Should I dare try a computer with XP? I can\'t get win 2000 installed so I guess I\'m gonna have to get a new computer.

    Thanks,
    Rick

    How much RAM do you have? XP needs more so make sure you more. I have XP with 1 gig of RAM and the 2.53 version of Gigastudio seems ok but I have some general problems:

    * Error code 5: unable to allocate memory (apparently not a function of how much RAM I have)
    * Some latency on high CPU intensive MIDI
    * Some pops and clicking

    Tascam said XP is ok but the definately recommended a clean install - not one of the Dell type configuration where lots of customized apps are already embedded into the operating system.

    Win2000 has the same RAM issues that XP does.

    I\'ve personally had a great experience with XP, after an unpleasant one with Win2k.
