This new XP is far more compatible to the self-employed such as myself, I am a stay at home disabled person who finds this product excellent!
XP is so much more user friendly than any previous system. I have had less problems with xp than any previous versions. This is an upgrade well worth the money!
I think that Windows XP Home Edition is enough because Professional is pricey and the features included in it that Home Edition does not have is not really a big deal. The Price of this is twice the price of Home Edition. But if you are a businessman... or a power user, you may want this version than Home Edition. Read more Less
great os, easy to use, but if you blow it off your machine or have to replace your hard drive you have to call microsoft and say mommy may i reinstall my software i paided for!!!!!
It is a good & stable OS that can withstand several problems, which might be encountered by third party sofware installations.
I had ME before I installed XP and I love XP.
If you're looking for an operating system that's compatible, durable, look no furhter. Windows XP Professional Edition is one of the most reliable systems on market so far. I purchased it about a week ago, but I'm so amazed at all the new features. O...ne thing I really like is that the Desktop is not cluttered with program icons. Although Windows XP Professional isn't cheap, it's worth an investment. I'm from the old school; I simply believe that Windows 98 is an excellent operating system, but what makes Windows XP Professional so unique is the user friendliness. The graphical interface design is quite impressive. The Help & Support Section on Windows XP Professional is really helpful. You can seek any help from freeing disk space, to degramenting your hard drive, etc. From Windows 98 Second Edition to Windows XP Professional was a big jump for me. The only problem I had with Windows XP Professional is that it's not too user friendly with my inkjet printer. I will eventually upgrade my printer, but the printer prints well, but it takes almost 30 seconds to print, but with Windows 98, the print time was fast. Read more Less
