    Installation very fast but partitioning is text which can be quite droutant for novices.
    No problem of incompatibility OS has a lot of bottle.
    The setup is pretty simple.

    ADQUATION / PERFORMANCE

    I tourn XP on a laptop mount equipped with an Intel Core Duo 2x2 Ghz 2 GB RAM.
    It is very stable. No crash.
    The OS is fast.

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    I use it for 4 years now.
    I should point out that it is more stable and faster than the wagon.

    There is a consquente advance between Windows 98 and Windows XP. The core is strong enough, I have not had a virus problem by having put a firewall and free antivirus.

    I highly recommend this OS which currently is the most stable at Microsoft.

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    7n400Pro2 Gigabyte, AMD Athlon XP2600 +, 1 GB DDR 7200, 1 and 1 MIA Midi Omega Desktop. Windows accepts everything and does not choosy as some (dj deficits above). XP is "fast, reliable, and gnagnagna gnagnagna" as is said in the doc '. That's true. I've always used, as a musician poor, to work on config 'the Mad Max with a stove pipe as a fan and the corrugated metal home with string in banana bark to keep all windows it says "no problem with this is a what?"

    OVERALL OPINION

    Actually I use it since its release (2 years I think). What I like most is the rapidity and reliability of Systm what I like least is the sermon preached by Bill Gates about piracy while commercial shark as it raises the all the same. I went from Windows 98 98SE, Millennium, Mac OS9 and OSX. It's expensive ... IS monopoly monopoly. I am happy to work on PC with a reliable platform and not factory gauze as LINUX, the current market situation, I do not think we can REALLY talk about choice, comrades.

    The problem with Windows is that it becomes unstable rather quickly, trs random image management of the data on the HDD (but Mr Gates, kill the Abrate of DFrag! !), some install / uninstalled a few months of intensive use, the folder 'Windows' and the registry obse grow and get started rowing. I reinstall all the Systm 6 / 8 months. It's heavy but now it's routine.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use this OS for 2 years.
    Overall, Microsoft provides a system that possdant qualities (ease of use, compatibility but boring dfaults trs (instability downturn, big resources, monopoly is ...). price to pay for a product key that sacrifices performance in favor of ease and a esthtisme (doubtful?).
    This is not to say that I deprive myself of Systm seen that one can install 2 OS on the same machine and qu'normment of thing turns primarily on the operating system. .. Linux fan, I am very eager to get Agnula ...

    - Easy installation if you remember to make him swallow the SATA drivers at the right time

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    - Config: AMD Athlon 3000 + HDD + SATA Motherboard Abit NF7-s (NForce 2) + 768 MB DDR
    - The impressive performance compared with those available in Win2k SP4 with the same configuration.

    OVERALL OPINION

    A very good ergonomics and performance really there without trying to optimize.

    Listen, I'm a Linux user at the base ...

    then, since I make music, that is to say several years ...

    what I like? uh ... software running on it.

    I dtest? uh ... microsoft?

    I tried tons of Linux distributions from ultra machinbidule alpha 0.000001unstable pif pocket from the last until the end of the Fedora and RedHat sponsored by IBM ... gnial really, but highly entertaining and informative ultra trainer ... but not for me, because the era was the linux audio ... um ... and then I think I wanted to have a girlfriend one time or another, I think my guitar Premire ... and voila, things went wrong and I became a big rock star ... casually ca windows can worry about anything other than its OS ...

    Then install the drivers, because nothing will be recognized automatically with XP, you must install all your hardware yourself.
    As long as you do not have the CD of your motherboard, and no other PC, you will be bothered to download the drivers for your hardware without internet connection ...

    Additionally, if your PC works with SATA hard disks, it may be that XP does (s) not detect! To you therefore to hack the CD to include the SATA driver, which is inconceivable for a beginner.
    Moreover, in order to install XP SP3 on my PC and its 2 Fixed SATA HDD in RAID0, I had to integrate the driver in XP CD with nLite, and therefore the re-imaged.
    Same problems with my Laptop HDD and 160GB SATA disk not detected without first having integrated the driver.
    2 PC => 2 CD ... Super convenient!

    SUITABILITY/PERFORMANCE

    Configuration:

    1.86GHz core2duo, 4GB ram, 160GB SATA RAID0 2xHDD

    The performances are good, although careful, XP 32-bit detects only 3.25 GB of ram maximum!
    OS fairly stable, crashes are fairly rare (though it happens), the starting time is correct, the heavy applications running smoothly, and games as well.

    That said, after a few months, XP gets heavier and becomes increasingly slow. Nothing to do, multiple defrags will change nothing, you will one day have to either have to format and reinstall Windows as this one will become too slow and unstable ... not terrible that Mr crosoft.

    Please also note that XP is very sensitive to the virus and picks up everything that happens! To you on your own to protect your XP, and even with firewall and antivirus, this OS is still very vulnerable.

    OVERALL OPINION

    XP was very good when it was released to replace Windows 2000 but is now largely outdated.

    The fact that the OS is not stable over time repulses me, I was a little tired of having to reformat my PC every six months because the performance is deteriorating day by day and became less and less stable.

    Securing the OS is inexistance Quazi, no integrated antivirus, firewall a nickname that does not do much, many security flaws that Microsoft takes months to patch ... and again!

    So for me XP is finished, I found it more efficient and far more stable and secure Linux.

    Value for money bof is far too expensive for what it is!
