XP Pro rocks!
Windows 95/98 were fine, windows NT sucked! ug. I hated it when my parents had nt on our family computer. fortunately after i bought my computer with XP Home on it, h went out and bought XP for the family one, do NT is long longer! yay!
I actually really like the way the star menu is set up with XP, and the design on the windows. Once i got rid of that horrible greeen, that is
Windows '98, it's the only one I have used...
Windows XP Home
I have XP Home, and find it to be the best version yet! Bear in mind I have had my new computer for under a week, and it was the first time I have used XP Home... and already in a week, I love it!
What is the difference between XP Home and XP Pro?
I've been using XP Professional for a week and it is really nice though it takes some getting used to.
I think the difference between XP Home and XP Professional is that XP Pro is more oriented towards business whereas XP Home is more oriented towards Home users. Other than taht I don't know. Probably on Microsoft site.
Yes, I thought those differences would be pretty obvious!
From what I recall, XP Pro has better security features, while XP Home relies less on security, but more catered towards Audio & Video.
Can anyone confirm this?
I have XP home, so I wouldn't know about XP pro.
You forgot Windows ME!
Xp pro is the best!
Yeah Gath, you forgot ME
OK, in terms of troubleshooting, 98 is the best and easiest and 95 is the worst.
3.x isn't supported by anyone and I haven't even seen it since 1998.
ME is pretty good, pretty much the same as 98.
NT is a giant pain in the ass.
2000 and XP are almost the same, but XP is annoying because you can personalize it too much which makes troubleshooting annoying.
My favourite version of Windows is Windows XP Professional. So much better than Windows 95/98.
I'm a big fan of Windows 2000 Server; I've been using it for over a year now and I find it to be very stable.
Windows 2000 is THE most stable OS that Microsoft has released.
XP is decent, but...
... networking is extremely difficult, due to the plethora of 'helpful' wizards that are available. IMHO, XP goes too far with the concept of 'User-friendlieness' and creates a system that cannot be used by a high-end programmer. Also, XP has almost no reverse compatibility in any sense, from networking to gaming to hardware tweaking!
Although the XP Start Menu Options are fairly helpful...
I apoligize for the massive venting, I will try not to let it happen again, but not making any promises...
And yeah, I think the main difference between Pro and Home is just that Pro has more emphasis on security, that you're average home user might not need. Still, because I operate it on a notebook, which means the computer isn't always in the safety of my home, I prefer to have more security.
I didn't like XP Home the first time I put it on my computer, but after I upgraded my memory, it works alot better.
Windows must bleed.
Go Linux! Open-source all the way.
