is XP worth the ......?

By chaosrn ·
Is XP worth the tears and knashing of teeth
that will most assuredly follow an attempt
to upgrade?
and is it truly more stable than 98SE (which
as we all know isn't), and ME (i won't go into this one)?

Using the Beta versions XP is a good system,yet the headaches will come if your system is less that 3 yrs old,which will most likely not make the hardware compatibility list,for what it offers you may want to consider keeping your present system,so No it is not worth the pain,considering the price for the OS

Yes. My MCSE instructor says thatXP solves
most of Win2000 compatability problems, and yes it is more stable than Win98Se. I do however recommend waiting a while maybe a couple months or so while the major bugs are worked out. In the interim, ifyou have not already done so,
1 upgrade to fat 32
2 delete temp internet files
3 run scandisk
4 run disk defragmenter.
5 make sure your swap (or page file) is not on the same partition as your system. (it will slow you down)

For home user:
If there is no problem with the current OS, keep using it! Since upgrading an OS costs a lot and some unexpected things may happen!
For Server:
Use the up-to-date product is a must because the technical support and the security arebetter.

It might be the greatest thing since sliced bread but I am not interested at all in paying Microsoft a yearly fee just to use their operating system. Another ploy from Microsoft to rip you off in my opinion.
