Why is it that Microsoft are always designing Operating Systems for the PC? Windows XP is based on Windows NT (SP4) Technology and is better than all the rest. The only thing i hate most about XP is that every week since i have recieved it i have had to download security updates for it. Windows XP professional is the Operating System people want. You can set up new user accounts at the touch of a button, you can set-up a new Network, you have a choice of new games like Spider Solitaire. Windows XP also protects against Blue Screen Crashes which oftenly appeared in Windows 3.x, 95, 98 And 98SE. Since that time Microsoft have been bringing out 2 versions of everything they do. It stated with Windows 2000 Home or Professional, Windows ME Home or Professional. Now it XP Home or professional. You can never make the difference between the two of them and you dont know which one has the extra features on them. Windows XP Requires quite a big portion of the HDD (Hard Disk Drive) just to install extra features. Windows are getting too popular why cant they move over and let the UNIX people make their success within the computer trade.
***Windows XP Speed*** Windows XP is the fastest Windows to start up at only 9.23 seconds according to a Microsoft Spokesperson at a national conference. Windows XP Professional is the quickest to boot even on a slow Pentium 166 Processor.
***Windows XP Features*** Windows XP has this many new additional features from Making your own movie to copying music to the hard disk using Windows Media Player 8.0.
***Windows XP Similar To*** Windows XP is simiar to Windows NT (SP4) and Windows 2000. They have all the same capabilities such as Dial-up Networking, Switch the users over quickly, you could even lock the work station so no one has access whilst you are away.
***Windows XP Colour Scemes*** Windows XP has a new array of colour schemes to fit to your desktop, folders and Sub-Folders. I like the Field colour scheme which is Blue and Green.
***Windows XP Hyperlink System*** Windows XP has a new unique way of Guaranteing that you have quick access to all files and folders. Say for example you wanted to Go to the OLD "My Documents Folder" and you really needed to go to the "My Networks Folder" you wouldn't need to keep on hitting the back tab at the top of the page or type in the directory in the address tab. on the left hand side it would give you instant access to what you need.
***Windows XP Is it User Friendly?*** It depends on what you want it to do. If you want to find out how to install a new hardware device it would go through it with you in easy steps which would make it easier for you. It is like Ciao. People will help you learn from your Errors and Mistakes.
