Links can help you decide whether to launch Windows XP

Whether you love it or hate it, Windows XP is here. Do you know enough about it to know if the new OS is a fit for your organization? Follow these links to make an informed decision.


Microsoft’s newest operating system, Windows XP, hasn’t received the warmest reception from TechRepublic members.

TechRepublic member Flashtube said in one discussion, “Microsoft is only worried about making money and plenty of it. I don't think we need several more buggy OSs floating around the world causing havoc.”

Jppascoe joined the discussion by adding: “Based on conversations I've had with other techs, nobody else here sees the point in trying to upgrade to XP.”

While many TechRepublic members denounce XP, the OS is here, and sooner or later, you’ll likely have to explain why you think your organization should or should not make the move.
