No offence dude, but i agree with Moshbat. You're starting to pull the whole yours31f thing by posting a lot of random information that may or may not have any relevance at all. If you want to post something make sure it has some meaning behind it. ;)

Thanks for the link. I am always interested in Windows XP info, considering that it is the only Windows-based OS I run. Try to make the post more of a discussion, though, or it does look a bit random.

I dont see where moshbat says anything in here for one.
How dare you compare me to that kid.
I dont come in here posting a fucking thing unless its worth reading.
Seriously a PDF released two months ago by the NIST directed at the IT security field isn't relevant material to this website?
Last time i checked this is a site concerned with security isues.

@Zephyr_Pure :

Sorry if the post was a bit random. I was only trying to give people the links so they could have the info. I didnt think it required a discussion.

But if you care to talk about the information found im more than willing to do so. Ive only read a few pages if the 2008 release. The 2004 i read all the way through and knew 90% of it as it was. But im busy so the 125 page one is on the back burner for a couple days.

All i use is WINXP to. I dont see linux worth the time right now and Vista sucks in my opinion. I think i would use linux if i had another machine i running on dual boot i feel its slow.

Useless opinions are NOT worth reading.
