4 out of 5 eggsstable

Pros: works much better then win 95- I like it better then Win XP Home.

Cons: Microsoft changes there opperating system every 2 or three years and do not provide driver updates for older hardware like printers- I had to give up a very good HP L4

5 out of 5 eggsWinXP Pro ...

Comments: Wow, only Newegg could have sold this at such a ridiculously low price. Hats off to Newegg. Youve got yourself a loyal customer. As for windows XP, nothing is perfect... but this baby beats its predecesors completely. Pair it with some Spyware Catching and Virus Catching software and you got yourself a beauty.

5 out of 5 eggsgood even for lower end

Comments: i bought this for my little sisters older dell running a 500mhz pentium with 192mb ddr, even with this older system it still runs smooth when leaned out a little. Although I have not had much experience with win2k and therefore can not compare the two I will say it is definitely much, much, much better than 98se or Me. Definitely reccomended, thanks new egg.

5 out of 5 eggsXP Rocks

Comments: I am a computer technician and am always setting up and fixing systems for companies and private computer owners. I have used Windows 2000 a lot and Windows XP. I personally like both operating systems but I am partial to Windows XP. I like to play games and run other applications on my personal computer and I think that Windows XP makes better use of my system resources as far as games are concerned. Both operating systems are very stable but XP seems to handle gaming a little better. If you know what your doing, you can make XP run a little faster and smoother than it normally would after a fresh install. Either way, Windows 2000 or XP are both great but for gaming Windows XP is a little better.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: As far as Operating Systems go this is by far the one of the most stable if not the most stable one out. For those telling people to ditch Windows for Linux I would like to say that Linux has crashed on me more than XP Pro or Home(never has). Linux is a nice alternative, but you just can't game or basically be compatible with anything else if you use it. Windows is obviously here to stay whether you like it or not. Atleast the boys at MS have been doing their homework on this one. I just recommend you get a Spyware scanner, anti-virus, and firewall to be safe. I recommend System Mechanic 4 Pro(availible at NewEgg!).

5 out of 5 eggsSuper Nice!

Comments: I have an AMD 3200+, 1GB Corsair XMS Extreme DDR400 RAM, 60GB Maxtor DiamondMax 9 Plus ATA133 / 8mb cache HDD... and a few other things. I also have XP Pro and I must say... I went from 98SE to this! What a difference. I've made it look like 98SE and I have it using less RAM then 80% of people!

This is by far the #1 OS!
