Dear colleagues, if you have been recently screwed by an individual who sold you a version of Microsoft Windows and it turned out to be counterfeit, do NOT send to Microsoft!! I sent EVERY piece of information they asked for on their website. They made me wait an entire month before telling me they require the original key code. This would only be found within the counterfeit version of Windows on the laptop I purchased. Of course after an entire MONTH, one reloads Windows XP on the... (read more)

Windows XP has always been my friend. Even after trying Windows Vista and Windows Seven I was back to Windows XP again. Yes it's old, but for my old computer it's perfect to run. (read more)

Windows XP (Professional)
Ironically I bought this on the day that Windows 7 was released, to replace the supplied Vista and my installation of Windows 2000 Pro on my laptop. ( Don't listen to the "experts" - it's easy to install older systems over the newer ones if your IQ is approaching treble figures, even easier if you have a second machine available if you lose some odd boot files ). An OEM from digitalsunrise cost about £100 including postage to France.
The only reason for... (read more)

I've been using Windows XP home edition for years, in fact, as soon as it came out. I've even tried Vista and reverted back to XP. I don't know what it is, but I find XP to be more stable and robust. I like the "no gimmick" appeal it has compared to Vista. XP has never let me down, and I particularly like the layout and ease of navigation.
I have two PCs at home, and both run on XP. I use Vista at work, but unfortunately have no choice. One day I'll check out Windows 7, but until... (read more)

I have built 5 PC's in my time all with XP. I have worked with XP for 7/8 years or so. I find it is easy to set up, run and maintain. There are alot of people 80% i expect who dont know how personally configurable the OS is and if they did they wouldnt choose to upgrade to vista. It is an operating system which means XP sits in the background while you get on and wtire doc's, enhance photo's, clip videos, listen to music etc and will not ask like vista "do you really want to run that...

Well recommend Microsoft Windows XP, All in all it's the best Windows version ever in my opinion. Quite stable compared to any other version of Windows. Much faster than Vista I find. Easy to use. Only bad point for me is the security is a problem with default settings. It is not open source. Well recommended Operating System though! (read more)

Microsoft Windows XP is a reliable operating system when comparing it to Windows 98. In Windows XP there are no blue screens when there are system errors. Also comparing to Windows 98, Windows XP rarely requires a computer reboot (even on a 6 year old computer with Windows XP upgrade).
The Windows update function is useful as it can be programmed to check for updates automatically. The updates provide security patches, and downloads for the hardware on your computer (in some cases).
The... (read more)

I upgraded my computer to Windows XP a while ago, and I am very satisfied. XP has better security, more applications, and you can personalize a lot of different things with this software. I think they should lower the price of this because not everybody can afford a $200 operating system. (read more)

Microsoft Windows XP: I have read that there is no difference between retail and OEM versions, this is not true as with OEM you can't download drivers from the internet, I purchased a laptop from Tiny with no disc, I reformatted with OEM version and couldn't as it kept coming up with errors, I purchased a full retail boxed version and have had no problems since and my laptop performs much better, there is a marked difference between the two.

I found on first instaling it that Microsoft Windows XP looked like the Operating System we've been promised by Microsoft since Win 95. After 4 hours of instaling hotfixes, patches and othe security updates (shades of Win98 stability?) i couldnt get my most important pieces of software to load, MS office XP and Norton System Works 2004 Pro. The problem? One of the 60 some patches turned out to be the culprit, though which one im not sure...
after a trip with fdisk and a reinstalation, i... (read more)

Microsoft Windows XP has got to be the worst MS OS ever apparently pro version is slightly more stable, im going back to win 2000, you people may have only had XP for a few months, (it seems to get worse the longer it is on your PC i suppose this is because their are more programs on here now that could crash it) alternatively you may just be insane, if it were up to me I would not use a MS OS at all, but I need to run windows programs. DO NOT AQUIRE XP AND FOR GODS SAKE DONT BUY IT. (read more)

I have windows XP Pro installed under NTFS. It just has to be the best operating system from Microsoft yet. I cannot beleive how stable the system is. It just wont crash! And even on the rare occasion it does, only the problem application goes, not the whole damn system.
As an ex ME user, I was convinced that Microsoft did not know how to program. But now I have XP, Microsoft seemed to have redeemed themselves.
There is always room for improvement however, I have always belived that... (read more)

My kids were constantly finding ways to throw our PC out of whack, causing crashes and leading to many OS re-installs. Microsoft Windows XP eliminated most of these problems, although my son can still bring things down from time to time. Also, allows for true multiple users so that I don't have to look at my daughters funky wallpaper. (read more)
