Default Which XP newsgroups?

Sending you to an XP newsgroup is like sending a person to HELL. I
want no part of that.

Now ask yourself and be honest with yourself. Do you really want to
use that evil XP? Do you really want to abandon all your friends on
the Win98 groups to join the enemy camp of XP users? You wont find
any of those people friendly, because they are all too stressed from
using that horrid XP. You may want to rethink this whole matter !!!

I get the feeling that XP is now taking the position '98 has had for a
while - lots of people very familiar with it, MS wanting it to die, that
sort of thing. Sadly, '98 is beginning to be hard to keep going rather
like '95 (and 3.x) was, if you want to use anything new.
