      "Jesus Christ!"

      February 27, 2014   |   By fujitsulover

      Version: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.1 (Build 2600: Service Pack 3)

      Pros

      It is a fun operating system.

      Cons

      Nothing that can be thought of.

      Summary

      Thank you Jesus Christ! This operating system has been with me a short while however it is very enjoyable. Throughout my brief years on the computer as a new user it really is impressive. Just my personal prefer. Even the preview of Microsoft Windows 8 does not compare to Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 2.

      "Not worth the install"

      July 09, 2012   |   By Ratterify

      Version: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.1 (Build 2600: Service Pack 3)

      Pros

      Works with any application

      Cons

      Slowest OS ever.

      Summary

      So far Windows XP is by far the slowest OS I've ever worked with. Not worth the buy at all.

      "Windows XP"

      February 06, 2012   |   By Mert98

      Version: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.1 (Build 2600: Service Pack 3)

      Pros

      Easy to use

      Cons

      Slow
      Not compatible for DX10 and higher
      Fisher price interface
      Crashes too much because of drivers
      Shows BSOD's for no reason
      No IE9
      Bad 64-bit support
      Insecure

      Summary

      Windows XP is not a good OS, because it keeps crashing for no reason and it's so ******* slow, even if you have 1-2GB of memory. If you have XP, I recommend that you upgrade to Vista SP1+ or 7 now.

      "Very, very good Windows program"

      March 27, 2011   |   By Nasademon

      Version: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.1 (Build 2600: Service Pack 3)

      Pros

      Easy to deal with problems, easy to navigate. Holds lots of space. Tells when there is a problem and fixes it easily. Fast 85% of the time. Good household computer, tells when a program may harm your computer, and asks if you would like to run it.

      Cons

      Lags sometimes (ANNOYING), can be slow 35% of the time. When multiple tabs & windows are running at the same time, all the programs immediately become 'unresponsive'. When programs become 'unresponsive', pain in the neck to shut the program down.

      Summary

      Overall, I have had this computer ALL MY LIFE, and it still works like brand new. This computer is an 'old but trusted friend', and if you want to pick out a new program, go with this. You won't regret it! :)

      "still works if you buy upgrade pkg off of ebay"

      December 11, 2010   |   By pdossey

      Version: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.1 (Build 2600: Service Pack 3)

      Pros

      if your Microsoft ME operating system won't work anymore, buy a upgrade package off ebay that converts your o/s to XP home. Yes, it works OK and allows you to keep your current computer a few more years.. as Microsoft will support XP thru 2013+

      Cons

      no choice but to convert to xp from ME. XP home works just fine and all my old software works great on it. No support for ME which worked great for me for 10 years. Time to move up to XP to keep software current.

      Summary

      XP will probably go down as Microsoft's best operating system ever. After service pack 2 and 3, they finally got it working! Why reinvent the wheel? I'm happy and set for at least 2 or 3 years thanks to a $50 upgrade pkg purchased off ebay
