Weakness: Haven't found any yet!
This is great, prompt shipment. Jut would have liked more details because it installed in addition to...not over my Win 98. However, problem was in my hard drive, I think. Works fine now. Thank you.

Fan of MS's Dependability, Flexability, and Credability
Strengths: Lots of POWER and flexability for the common USER. More than ready for the 21st Century.
Weakness: The limitation of 1 OS copy per computer. In addition, XP has CRASHED on me upon encountering various unfamiliar programs or operations (doesn't happen often).
I have Windows XP Home(full ed.) and XP Pro(full ed.) on two of my computers and I need to update the operating system on my children's computer(also a fan of Win 98, but it's limited by today's standards). I've always used MS operating systems due to their Dependability, Flexability, and Credability. Their updating is almost instantaneous. I am a TRUE fan of MS Operating Systems.

Windows XP home Edition
Strengths: Great price!
Had to buy a new operating system for my new computer. Have been using win 2000 but couldn't play older win 98 games. After installing Windows XP worked just fine. Registerd with Microsoft with no problems. System seems very stable. I am happy with the purchase.
