Super organized, even Program Files.

Desktop is clean, with only 5 icons on it (the 'total commander' explorer and My Computer, My Documents, Recycle Bin and Network Neighborhood).

Every tool/program is nicely organized in the Start Menu.

Other than that, in My documents I have my collected soundtracks and music in a nicely organized fashion. Some of my work is typically chaotic, but that is usually deleted after I finish (i.e backup files along the way).

Trust me, organizing it makes your job a lot faster. But it also makes the 'formatting' and 'reinstalling' a pain in the ass.

My hard disk is a mess because of the OS and apps. I only ever store files and programs in meaningful folders in "Desktop" "My Documents" or "/home". But ugly UNIX software and some Windows software insist on spreading their files all arround the disk, writing shortcuts to Start menu, storing registry keys, creating hidden .config files. They call them installers. I call them bags of crap.
fasm and other sane applications are always welcome.

You can always manually modify those shortcuts and put them in meaningful order (or delete them).

I call them an extra pain I need to endure.

My Windows XP is now slow as hell.
I need an easy way to reformat it and reinstall.
I think I'll have to backup data to the linux HD.
Then I reinstall. Then I load linux CD and reinstall grub. What a pain!
Windows does get slower after some months of usage.

Only if you keep installing/uninstalling tons of apps, really. And a defrag often helps, things do slow down if the registry hive files become fragmented.

It's funny how linux people claim that linux doesn't suffer from fragmentation... and then you see a tip for speeding up the ArchLinux package management system: basically "move all the files to another partition, then move them back". That's a crude way of doing defragmentation Smile
