So what have we had recently, Windows Vista, 7? Due to me being a student I can't afford either, so I went with Windows XP; even now after having many opportunities to change OS's I have stuck with windows XP. Now I'm not one of those people that finds one thing and sticks with it forever, before XP I was using the windows 7 beta; it was good but it felt to much like "I'm pretty". After about a year of using XP now, not just as a standard user but for both gaming and heavy duty video editing; I can very safely say that I will be staying with this OS until they cut support. Simply because it has been so well built up these last years, that now the OS ... Read the complete review

I recently installed Windows XP Professional on my PC and I would like to share with other Ciao members my opinions on this latest version of Microsoft's operating system. Microsoft have gone into a lot of trouble to stop people from making illegal copies of this software by putting an activation policy into it, whereby you not only have to have a valid product key, but you also need to connect to Microsoft's server and register your copy directly. A code will then be sent back to you so that you can use it to activate the software. Rummor has it that an insider of Microsoft uploaded the product code onto the Internet before the activation ...

I'd consider myself a fine connoisseur of Windows OS's. I started off using DOS and Windows 3.1. Since then I've tried them all. Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 98SE, Windows NT, Windows ME, Windows 2000 and finally... Windows XP. I have all of them, and out of all of them I currently choose to us Windows XP. Now don't get me wrong it does have it flaws, but never the less is it a good operating system. Stability: Indeed Windows XP is fairly stable, not quite as much as Windows 2000 (I've only ever managed to crash that once), but still not bad. For most people who just want to play a few games and go online it is more that suitable. ... Read the complete review

Before you begin, I'd let to explain, that until recently, I really *hated* (for lack of a stronger word) Microsoft products. They're always crashing, they're slow, and always giving the Blue Screen Of Death. The only decent MS ap was IE, and that was just because Netscape Navigator was so bad with it's HTML (Note: Version 6.2 using The Gecko is much better!). Anyway, since getting XP Pro, my vision has much changed. MS done good! Here goes... I couldn't believe it when I started seeing ads on tv and around town for a Microsoft OS. The ads were great, but could Microsoft come up with a stable operating system and prove all their ... Read the complete review

The best operating system that money can buy. (Really). - Advantages: Great new look, Hundreds of new features, Mult-user, multi-tasking, multi-everything - Disadvantages: Do we really have to activate it?
