better operating systems on the market or for free.

  • Excerpt: Windows XP has had many updates and Microsoft say it is now their best operating system, but why has it taken a service pack 2 for micrsoft to deal with the problem? This code should have been written better in the first time. This software is expensive, but people don’t know what other choices they have, and the marketing machine of Microsoft will lead them to believe there is no other option.

I don't like it

  • Summary: 1st, unlike other reviewers I do not like the "look" of windows xp at all. It looks like someone turned up the saturation of a bad cartoon. The startmenu pulls up a complicated box instead of the simple list of all the older windows. I liked the list of the older windows. 2nd Constantly asking me for microsoft passport passwords. It makes you miss constantly blue screening in previous windows.

  • Summary: I installed Windows XP Upgrade on my home computer to replace my current ME operating system, but have now uninstalled it. My advice is, if your current operating system is basically satisfactory, don't make the move to Windows XP unless you've made sure your older programs and hardware are compatible with XP and there is some feature you feel you really, really must have.

Thanks a lot, Microsoft.

  • Summary: As with all Microsoft Windows products, Win XP Home is overpriced, unreliable, and poorly advertised. It claims to be "open systems." Unfortunately, many computers will ONLY run Windows XP. Therefore buying a computer with Win XP home may limit you when Microsoft makes its newest advancement, or if you choose to tell Microsoft to take long walk off a short pier and move to Linux. Windows XP is overpriced. Linux, for example, is free. OS/2 is also free.

It's pretty, but that's about it

  • Summary: My husband and I purchased an XP-equipped HP computer shortly before XP was widely released to the public. At first we were impressed by the smooth, somehow friendlier look that XP offered. Actually, XP worked quite well for some time, although there were several times over the course of the past year and a half where we had to restart the computer due to instability and such, which is frustrating, but expected for a Microsoft product.

Am I the only one noticing the 2K version of BSOD?

JAGS, Amazon
23 May 2003
  • Summary: I just read through many of the reviews that claim XP doesn't crash and is rock solid reliable. I did this after having just experienced my 2nd crash today. Well, I'm stumped because, while XP performs marvelously for routine, (read: light) usage, I get 9X'ish crashes when I throw some serious processing at it. The new "BSOD", or blue screen of death, is now more of a "grey hiccup of aggravation".

  • Summary: Si, este es el sistema operativo que yo uso, el Windows Xp... aunque espero que no sea por mucho tiempo. Realmente, el Windows me tiene hasta las narices: a cada dos por tres se me cuelga, no para de salirme lo que llaman "el pantallazo azul de la muerte", cada vez que intento correr alguna aplicación como el Photoshop "muere", etc.
  • Pros: opi

  • Summary: Muy buenas!!! Hace ya tiempo que no hago opiniones sobre un sistema operativo, y ahora que me encuentro con el XP a mano, pues vamos a dedicarle una opinión. Concretamente hablamos de la versión HOME, que no entiendo porque tantos la detestan, pero muchos (y me refiero a los que pagan su licencia) prefieren usar un profesional que un home, cuando está claro, que no le van a sacar nada de partido.
  • Pros: facilidad de uso, administracion de discos
  • Cons: todos los problemas, fallos e inestabilidad que aporta .
