Microsoft Windows XP is the first operating system coming from Redmond to combine the advantages of the Windows NT core with the ease of use and flexibility of the Windows 9x series. Basically we can state that Windows XP is the fusion of the best of two worlds: Windows 2000 & Windows Me. After years of promising, Microsoft finally did it: Windows 9x is condemned to death (although it'll be supported until 2003) so home users now have access to the unprecedented reliability of the NT engine. Windows XP has made the news so much since its inception its hard not to want to be apart of the Windows eXPerience. Windows XP was internally referred by Microsoft as Neptune at first and later renamed Whistler before finally becoming XP.  

After several years of intensive development Microsoft has probably released the most ambitious version of Windows yet - similar to what Windows 95 was to Windows 3.1. Windows XP will surely mark computing history while OEM and system integrators expect it to boost sales in these economic troubling days. Microsoft Windows XP is available in two different flavors: the Home and Professional editions. Behind the green or blue box lies exactly the same operating system with a few minor feature differences. The professional edition adds some extra business oriented features over the Home edition with the support of SMP systems, Active Directory and IIS Web server. Weve written our review based on Windows XP Professional.
