Has anyone heard of Last XP? I'm trying to learn more information about it. I've recently come across it, and really like the way the OS works. I'm wondering if it's legit, and if so, where I might be able to find it. The only thing I've found relating to downloads of Last XP involve Torrents which I'm not familiar with---figured I should consult with people first.

Any advice/ideas?

My opinion, if you don't understand torrents, don't use one. While Torrents themselves are legit, a great deal of what is transferred with them are not. They are also susceptible to viruses and corrupt or missing files. This is my opinion. You'll have others swear by them

garmanma is right. Last Xp is just as mistrusting in torrents as direct links. You have to be very careful with what you download. If you really want it, I would suggest you scan whatever you download and after installion because sometimes the .iso will have files in it that are corrupted or viruses.

Thanks, your comments are pretty much what I was thinking--I've had some computer issues lately with an XP computer so I recently bought (and shortly after, returned) a Vista computer. I've since reformatted my original.

Right now things are going smoothly with the XP OS after a reformat...so I think I'll play by the "If it's not broke, don't fix it" theory.

Thanks for your input! :thumbsup:
