  • Excerpt: When I upgraded my computer, I though sure why not I will stick XP on it for the craic? Its bloody terrible. From the normal users point of view its ok, but if you?re a programmer or a maintenance person, its hell. It doesn?t have a clue what its doing, it freezes half the time and its basically useless. Now in fairness, biggish processors are better used with XP, but that should not be, but its Mr ?I will take everybody money for a useless product?

Very steady, but many flaws...

Jon-Erik Noor "I'm always awesome", Amazon
25 September 2003
  • Summary: - Windows XP (XP = Experince) is, as of this date, the latest of Microsoft's very populare operating systems. Based on the NT technology, XP is one of the most steadiest operating systems i've ever laied my hands on. It's 90% automatic to new hardware and when you connect to the internet. Remember all the IP protocolls and LAN configurations that gave you a hard time when you went a LAN party with Windows 95 and 98? Forget that!

Windows XP Professional...Questionable

Juan Ortuno, Amazon
7 September 2003
  • Summary: Having purchased a new Dell computer, I chose to get Windows XP Professional, my previous OS was 98, which had a thing for crashing. I really liked my new computer until after 1 month, my hard drive went and along with it, all the information I had just transferred from my old computer to this one, as well as the new stuff. Great, Dell sends me another hard drive and tech to install it, but I have to install XP again.

Frequent Errors...

Elizabeth Kyparisis "Samuel the Great", Amazon
12 April 2003
  • Summary: I am quite dissatisfied with this product. Initially the good looks of this product and faster startup that had recieved much accolade from other users seemed appealing to me, but many reveiwers had omitted the frequent incompatibility errors. I am giving this product three stars for its good looks, considerably faster startup/shutdown, and the usual smoothness when running programs. However, many programs that I had taken for granted are not compatible with XP.

Not Perfect, but great OS

Dillon S, Amazon
6 August 2002
  • Summary: This is a great OS. but it has its problems. First of all, it is true what Microsoft says about the OS starting quickly. I only have to wait about ten seconds or less for it to get started up. Also its compatibility is brilliant. But, the things I don't like is that the task manager isn't as convenient as it has been. For instance, it takes up to a minute to end a hanging application.

Good product: Questionable business practices

Eric, Amazon
2 July 2002
  • Summary: Windows XP professional is, without a doubt, the best and most stable version of Windows yet. Unfortunately, MS shows no signs of relenting from their aggressive business practices. One thing that simply shocked me about Windows XP: ASPI drivers, which are required for many CD ripping programs, are not included. Why would they do this? "Surely a careless mistake", you may think to yourself. Sadly, Microsoft deliberately left out these drivers.
