5 out of 5 eggsIt's Widows XP Pro SP2

Pros: I can't say there are too many pros to a Microsoft product but at least it's not Vista. The price is right and a lot better of a deal than retail versions that just get you a pretty box.

It installed and activated fine and even activated a second time without a hitch when I decided to upgrade my boot drive.

Cons: It's Windows.

Other Thoughts: I have no intentions of upgrading to Vista so I can't comment on the results of the Vista Business upgrade offer.

4 out of 5 eggsVista arrived today!

Pros: easy networking, simple installation

Cons: The machine will not shutdown without rebooting. This is now happening with a 3rd motherboard.

Other Thoughts: Surprise, suprise.... M$ came through. This version came with a free upgrade to Vista business, and it arrived today ( 3 months later )!

1 out of 5 eggsStill no vista upgrade!

Pros: XP works - but I purchased for Vista which was 3 weeks away or so.

Cons: Why couldn't Microsoft handle the upgrade to Vista directly? Instead, they farm it out to a company with the incentive to NOT upgrade - 3 months now and still no Vista!

Other Thoughts: Makes an Apple look like a Peach!

5 out of 5 eggsHey...

Pros: ...Cant go wrong with XP Pro. Id have to say Vista Ultimate is a great distro *(if i may call it that)* but Vista has a few compatibility issues with some of the equipment i use in measurement... so i went with XP Pro witch was FULLY compatible...
Dont get me wrong and im not saying Vista is the worst choice but not all of the world is ready for Vista. Even though i run both id say i use Vista just to mess around like Movies and Music and all the fun stuff. but when im working with some of my equipment i use XP Pro........

Cons: The GUI is not quite as "polished" as Mac OS X but i guess thats what Vista is for right?

Other Thoughts: believe it or not it took 30 minutes for a clean install on my RAID 0 Stripe(with two 500 Gig HDD)..
NEW EGG ROCKS!!! they had XP Pro to me in 2 days!!!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsUpgrade process worked fine

Pros: It works.

Cons: Hard to figure out when processes are running that shouldn't be...unless you spend money on third party tools.

Other Thoughts: Upgrade process worked fine. Went to the website, entered info, scanned my documents, emailed them, that's it. Was pretty easy.

5 out of 5 eggsfollow my lead

Pros: i love this os for the simple fact that i have been more than able to do a world of stuff with it; stuff that i don't even hear people talk about lol. unlike some reviews here, i did the upgrade to windows vista business without any problems. did it one week and got the upgrade in 2 weeks. the thing is i have learnt that when dealing with this sort of thing like the upgrade, that you should ignore the whole sign up online nonsence and just speak to some one at the company who is able to look about the processing of the upgrade. i initially was signing up online for the upgrade then after a bit of a hitch with ms website i decided that it's wiser to call them and let their personel deal with it for me. rather than doing it online with a greater chance of hearing later that my order didn't get processed!

Cons: should be able to legally share on all your home computers.
when doing the upgrade on the phone i took the guys name, the order confirmation, the time that we talked and pretty much any info that would assist me in dealing with them should they fail to fulfil the order in an unprofessional manner. this is the foremost reason why i deal with newegg. because alot of companies want u to deal with them by email & i am not for that. give me someone that can deal with my problem or order immediately, and newegg does that. NEWEGG ROCKS!

Other Thoughts: it's sad that some folks didn't get the upgrade for i can honestly say that the vista os looks better and works faster than xp. even the loading time on my 80 gig took only 12 minutes. i have two hd, 1 for xp & 1 for vista and have no incompatabilities @ all. and they r both on the same computer.
trust me, ignore the whole email thing. companies want your info when dealing with u. it is only right then that u 2 should talk with them and get their info while giving yours. they can't have all the power while u r left as the prey.
as per usually newegg is #1 period! the best store i have ever deal with. keep up the good work newegg & ups.

5 out of 5 eggsIt works, nor problems here

Pros: I can't fault Microsoft at all with this product, runs very stable and is a standard in most corporate environments. This is Microsoft's bread-n-butter and you know it will be supported for a long while.

Cons: Microsoft is still going to take over the world.

Other Thoughts: I'm not ready to upgrade to Vista. I just don't see a good enough reason to yet.
