Top 100 Toys Reviewer

Yes at the moment I think this is the best operating system out yet. I upgraded from 98SE and I have no problems at all with this "NO FAULTY BLUE SCREEN" thank god!!!

It is really easy to install - it does most of it for you all you do is press some buttons and that's it!!

I will not go out and buy Windows Vista yet as there are some serious compability issue with it... But you will not find this in the WinXP Pro Edition as it comes with Service Pack 2 (or you can go online and order or download it free from Windows).

Great product and at a reasonable price.. I would surely recommend this rather than a VISTA.....

4 stars due to fact that I believe it is a bit slow than VISTA and slightly faster than 98SE. Otherwise it would have scored 5 out of 5!!!

 Spot on!
