What do you say about the foundation of everything we do on the PC? Microsoft Windows, since its first release, has become an integral part of our computing lives. From photography to e-mail, gaming to multimedia, Windows is the framework on which all the other applications and programs are built. Without the Windows Graphic User Interface, nothing else would work. This is by design. The developers at Microsoft have worked hard to incorporate every aspect of digital information management and entertainment.

The Windows XP x64 Edition is an advanced operating system optimized for the new 64-bit processors, high-end gaming, 3-D animation and video editing. It gives you access to greater memory while supporting 32-bit applications. Your programs can load more data into virtual memory for quicker access, and XP Pro x64 now supports up to 128GB of RAM, for CAD and 3D modeling in real-time. For maximum scalability, it supports up to two single or multicore x64 processors for maximizing your computer's performance. In addition to Windows’ basic features, it offers so much more!

Windows XP includes a suite of features to help you protect your PC from hackers and phishers with the latest security enhancements and regular “patches” from Microsoft. It’s simple and easy to set up for the various users in your family, connect several computers, and there are controls which allow you to restrict and monitor a child’s internet travels. Web browsing is a cinch – Internet Explorer 6 provides a simple interface for web browsing and reading, and helps secure yours system from outside interference. This is the base on which every other personal computing program rests, and is essential for your PC.

4 out of 5 eggsXP PRO 64 NOT FOR MOST USERS YET

Pros: This card supports memory amazingly. Loads faster. Is a good tool for designers, animators, engineers, and gamers with a wired internet connection

Cons: NO WORKING WIRELESS LAN DRIVERS !!!
doesn't support 16 bit apps..most of your older programs use a 16 bit loader into a 32 bit...those won't work.

Other Thoughts: Its amazing for photoshop and other editing software which is why I needed it, but I still can't get my internet working. There aren't nearly enough drivers as of yet, so don't make the jump here just yet. Wait and see, and hopefully microsoft and other companies won't let us down

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome O/S if you know what you're getting into...

Pros: If you understand 64-Bit hardware and software behavior, then you'll appreciate this version of WinXP to the fullest.

Cons: Granted, there isn't a guarantee that all hardware and/or software will work in a 64-Bit environment. Do your homework BEFORE you decide to get WinXP64. You'll thank yourself later if you do it right...

Other Thoughts: There are complaints about compatibility. This isn't an O/S for everyday means unless you're a developer, programmer or Computer Artist that can appreciate all that can be offered from this version of WinXP. WinXP64 is awesome for all the industry standard app's that are memory hogs. Render's and 3D app's love WinXP64, especially if you've got a rig with 4 GB or more of RAM. Not for everyone, yes. But it will do wonders and a lot more if you've got a system and software that can pair with this intense O/S.

4 out of 5 eggsGood!

Pros: Quick. It is still the same old XP, but better. I liek this a bunch, and I've been using it for nearly a year.

Cons: Compatibility errors and support issues, but that will change with the progression of Vista. Does not support some programs and doesn't like some hardware at all, so be sure that you know what you're getting into with each separate part.

Other Thoughts: This is solid, and I wouldn't run any other OS right now, even though I like Mac laptops a bunch. Remember that with this OS, you need to look for compatibility before you buy other parts.

4 out of 5 eggsXP Pro is Where I Stay

Pros: 64-bit support to allow access to more than 3-gigs of memory (since 32-bit windows reserves addresses out of the 4-gig total). Good software compatability with 32-bit programs (only RealPlayer won't install, no big loss there). Comes with 32-bit shell (for use with applications that can't integrate with the 64-bit dlls). Very stable.

Cons: Poor 3rd-party driver support. Had to replace my 10-year old lexmark (it had a good life). The 64-bit IE6 that came with it crashed (I use Opera anyway). No McAfee or Notron 64-bit support. No NetGear 64-bit support.

Other Thoughts: Replaced Norton with Avast!, works just fine. Upgraded to a new Lexmark printer, works just fine. Found a free-ware TV utility for use with my Tuner card, didn't even need drivers. NVIDIA drivers for RAID and graphics work fine. Games run fine (Fear, Command and Conquer Generals, B&W2). Pair this with Virtual PC 2007 (free from MS) and an AMD 64 processor with hardware virtualization, and you can run any other OS you want on top.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat OS

Pros: 64 bit OS, good when when using a 64 bit CPUs like @MD, Its faster than the x32 bit version, Utilises more than 4GB of RAM, Alot of improvements overall.

Cons: DRIVERS are still the main issue...
I bought a Pinnacle HDTV Pro Stick (HDTV tuner) here and it doesn't have any x64 bit drivers for it.
But the Vista x64 has ... Thats just lame IMO, NOT Newegg's fault tho or MS.

Other Thoughts: Just to let u guys know MS still provide an Evaluation DL of this OS for 120 days http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/64bit/facts/trial.mspx
Do evaluate it first and see if u like it before buying it, thats what I did. My system: FX-60, 4GB RAM, 4 Raptors each pair on a dual boot, so I have x32 & x64 bit XP on 1 machine.

5 out of 5 eggsMicrosoft's best OS (almost)

Pros: Very fast and stable. Built on '03 Server. 64 bit performance. Set-up w/SATA-RAID 0 and you will have a very fast system. Except for 2003 Server, this is Microsoft's best OS.

Cons: RAID drivers can be challenging for newbies. Not all hardware manufacturers have driver support.

Other Thoughts: This is not a "toss in the disk and hit enter" OS like the XP Home/Pro editions. Check hardware support before install. UKGAMER has a HUGE 64 bit software compatability list, and PlanetAMD64 has an extensive help forum. Take those reviews bashing this OS w/a grain of salt. Do your research and go for it!

3 out of 5 eggsNot for Home Upgrade

Pros: Very Fast with the things that work. Has a lot of potential. loads fast, apps start up quick, running multiple apps is no problems.

Cons: Drivers, Drivers, Drivers!!! Uggg! If you already own periphials (like printers, scanners, etc) odds are you wont be able to find drivers for them. Which is why I say this isn't a good OS for home users doing an upgrade. There are periphials out there with x64 support, but your options are limited. Anti-Virus software is very limited too. Though there is free anti-virus software out there (and seems to work good so far) the major vendors aren't supporting x64 for home users.

Other Thoughts: I bought this OS August '05 for a build I was doing for a friend. Ran into driver problems and ended up shelving this OS and intalling the 32 bit version for him. Almost a year and a half later I built a new PC for me and figured I'd give it another chance. I got the PC running great, found some free anti-virus software that seems to be working fine. When I went to install my printer and scanner I realized I couldn't get drivers for them. It's unfortunate because this PC is really fast with the 64bit OS and I'd love to keep it on, but I'm not replacing everything else just to keep it. The real shame is I think Vista x64 is going to be the final nail in the coffin for any hopes of support for this OS. It's already easier to find Vista x64 drivers than it is for XP Pro x64. Oh well, time to order XP Pro 32bit....

5 out of 5 eggs64bit

Pros: Very fast and stable .

Cons: Some drivers for older hardware. But not a big deal .

Other Thoughts: To some other users : stop crying about symantec and McAfee not working . It is not Microsoft's fault . Get a Avast or AVG . They work much better and are free for home users .
