Initially I was wary of Windows XP being a Win2k fan. However, I installed XP on my near silent liquid cooled FutureClient 1.8GHz P4 and after several months use I can truly say it surpasses Win2k in all respects.

I've never had a crash although Dreamweaver & Photoshop still cause a few minor instabiliy problems (as it did with Win2k) but XP has dealt with thses just fine.

All in all a fine OS with lots of features and usability. The only gripe is the MovieMaker application that crashes when trying to work with AVI files but that's it.

The only thing I've changed is the theme from blue to silver - much easier on the eyes.

XP lives upto it's hype and more. Go on give it a try. It's certainly is far better than Mac OS9 but that's not a fair comparison and allows me to work on dotNET web applications which the way to go.
