Absolutely adored the original xbox, I saw what it was capable of and bought one immediately. Fantastic console which I still have under my tv today. Admittedly now its got a 2TB hdd with all my favourite xbox games and emulated games on it. First console with proper 5.1 sound. Graphically weak today but still find the graphics acceptable on quite a few games. I like that generation of consoles anyway. I was a big fan of Dreamcast and Gamecube too. Probably my favourite console generation.

In contrast I truly hate the windows operating system, absolute garbage and bloatware of zero value. Sucks the power out of hardware and leads to much time wasted sorting out its problems.
