Probably my least favorite Windows
18 November 2012
Summary: Overall Xp in my opinion will probably go down as the most over hyped OS ever. Literally every time I accomplished something with Xp I would praise God because it would literally freeze that much. This is just my opinion though and you fair reader, have the right to your own opinion. You might like Xp, you might not. I like Windows 7, you might not like it, You might like Mac and I hate it, I like chicken, you might not like it. You have the right to you own opinion.
Pros: It is fast on some computers and it doesn't take up major resources like Vista and 7, which makes it great for older computers
Cons: Constantly not responding and freezing, any and probably every program I opened on xp has probably locked up at least once. It's almost as though it was designed to....it probably was. It took at least 15 minutes to get anything done....
Summary: Say folks my pc crashed and tried everything i know to make it work. No luck until one morning i woke up and ordered a new version of windows xp home edition from guess who ? You got it. Let me tell you the price was amazing and it was authentic and the big thing it worked and now i'm back on . I thank overstock for having such an Item, because it did the job for me.. Respectfully yours???
Excerpt: Microsoft XP just works. XP has been around for a number of years which makes it a truly tested software, businesses still use Microsoft XP which is a testament to how good it is. I've been using XP for number of years now and even though Vista and now seven are out I've don't want to upgrade.
Excerpt: One of my preferred operating systems is Windows XP. While Windows 7 may be popular especially since Windows Vista turned out to be a flop, Windows 7 still requires a fast CPU, plenty of ram and a decent graphics card. On the other hand Windows XP home still runs without problems on a netbook or a notebook computer with 512mb to 1gb of ram. Windows XP is a very user friendly operating system.
Summary: If I had it to do over, knowing what I have learned since, I would buy a full edition of XP rather than an upgrade. This is because Win98 would still be available for another computer, or multi-boot. Also, I have lost the use of a small digital camera for which no XP drivers are available. The upgrade licence agreement stipulates that my prior version of Windows may no longer be used.
