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.

Into digital photography? Windows XP lets you transfer pictures from your digital camera to your computer and helps you organize and share your photos. Open a wide world of fantasy and adventure with PC and online gaming — and take a break from reality to have fun with friends and family at any age. Windows Movie Maker lets you create and edit home movies with a few simple drag-and-drop moves. Then share your movie via the Web, e-mail, your computer, or CD. With its playback features, Windows Media Player lets you enjoy your music and movies whenever you like. Windows Messenger lets you instantly communicate with friends and family all over from your computer, using text chat and even voice and video. Learn new graphic software, and share that, too. Write letters, balance checkbooks, communicate in e-mail worldwide, even learn a new hobby with programs all designed to work only with Windows.

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, 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.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter the devil you know

Pros: for my first Diy build I know I wanted XP. Stable, secure, no surprises.

Cons: upgrade to Vista later will cost me

Other Thoughts: For my first build I just wanted everything to go just fine thank you. So I tried to pick best in class components that were mature products.

4 out of 5 eggs2K with a Facelift

Pros: compatibility with apps crying for XP over 2K..
Still better than VISTA for the moment...

Cons: apps crying for compatibility I think is a big scam if you ask me... since most of them will work with 2K just fine.. Another Reason for Microsoft to get more $$ out of us every 5 years....

Other Thoughts: I don't see OS's getting better until everything fully supports and takes advantage 64bit.. then 128bit will be on the horizon..

4 out of 5 eggsIt's XP.

Pros: Besides Vista, this is basically the only choice for PC and most existing software. However it gets the job done fine. Came with a Vista upgrade coupon.

Cons: Not the greatest security record, but the computer it was installed on isn't connected to the net. Vista upgrade is ~50 for Home Basic and ~80 for Home Premium.

Other Thoughts: Running on a video editing machine with E6400, 2GB ram, Pinnacle Studio Plus titanium edition 10.5 video editing.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's Windows.

Pros: It's Windows XP, what else can I say?

Cons: The CD was damaged when I got it and Microsoft doesn't support OEM versions.

Other Thoughts: After wading through tech support, they told mw hat I already knew (the disc was damaged) and to call a number to get a new one. They said they couldn't help me but gave me another number. I borrowed a CD and installed from that.

5 out of 5 eggsSmooth install, works great

Pros: Works without issue. Very easy install.

Cons: It's Microsoft. Nothing more needs to be said.

Other Thoughts: Only install issues were hardware related to the computer itself, not the software. Thought it was my harddrive, turns out it was a mobo issue with the usb keyboard. New ps2 keyboard is on it's way.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's Windows

Pros: It's Windows!

Cons: It's Windows.....

Other Thoughts: Say what you want about MS products, 98% of the world needs 'em. Linux my be better in many ways but it still does not provide software to equal the offerings available to MS products.

5 out of 5 eggsMy sweet heart loves xp home edition

Pros: My sweetheart told me that she is going to hang on to xp home a lil while longer. She told me that MS Vista is not yet matured yet. I have to agree with her on that topic. As far the stability and performance is concerned, It provides all

Cons: Refrain from using the upgrade coupon. I believe its a gimmick used to fool new egg customers into believing that Vista is strong to use and have good eye candy. I have to admit that MS has released the os wayyy too early. They should have thoroughly tested it before making its debut

Other Thoughts: My sweet heart says stay with xp a lil while longer. You wont be sorry. Please read the cons carefully before making a purchase on the windows vista. She has been hearing reports of driver issues with the new os. Her drivers work well with windows xp home. Please stick with xp and give up the eye candy of vista. save some of that ram being used.
