Despite the similar name, there is nospecial synergy between Windows XP and Office XP, which works fine on Windows 2000.The Security Center lets you check the status of your essentialsecurity settings.XP certainly looks different, with rounded window corners, larger and moredetailed icons, and a clean-look desktop that on first installation shows onlythe taskbar and Recycle Bin. XP is also more customizable than earlierversions of Windows, and includes visual themes that let you change thewhole appearance of Windows in an instant. That is the window-dressing,but underneath are some significant improvements. One of the mostinteresting is Remote Desktop. A standard XP feature, this uses technologyfrom Microsoft Terminal Server to enable users to access their computerover any connection; for example, by dialing into the office from home.This is not just file access--this technology lets you run applications remotelyas if you were sitting at your desk at work. This is mature technology, stableand carefully thought out. So, for example, you can print from a remoteword processor to a local printer. A variation on the theme is RemoteAssistance, where the user can allow a remote helper to view their desktop,or optionally gain control of the keyboard and mouse, in order totroubleshoot a problem. The feature can also be disabled to ease securityconcerns.Laptop users benefit from enhanced powermanagement, with options to extend battery lifeby reducing CPU speed and display brightness.IrDA support has been fixed so that, unlikeWindows 2000, Windows XP can easily usemodems in mobile telephones via infrared. Anew screen font, ClearType, improves legibilityfor laptop or other flat screens, and there isbuilt-in support for wireless networking using thepopular 802.11 standard. A great feature of XP,also found in Windows 2000, is the ability tosynchronize network files with offline copies.Previously, these files could not be storedsecurely, but now they can be encrypted.The Information Bar in Windows XP Professional Edition with ServicePack 2 notifies you when it blocks ActiveX control or active contentand then lets you decide what to do.For Web browsing, XP comes with Internet Explorer 6.0. The enhancements in IE 6.0 are mainly of interest toWeb developers, and in any case Microsoft makes IE freely available to all Windows users. Although Java is notinstalled by default, it is not difficult to download a Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Windows Messenger, originally achat client, has evolved into a collaboration tool that allows for video conferencing and application sharing.Service Pack 2 allows users to instruct Internet Explorer how tohandle downloads from a specific publisherThe most significant new feature for Internet users is thebuilt-in firewall. A firewall protects against one of the mostdisturbing security risks, in which other users unknown toyou might connect to your computer while it is online,reading private files or causing other damage. XPs built-infirewall is a simple affair, but it does prevent most types ofunauthorized connection.Windows XP has strong multimedia features. The newMedia Player lets you copy music from CD to hard disk,create your own playlist, and write your own music CDs ifyou have a CD writer. Although there is loss of quality as aresult of compression, the process is easy and convenient.Media Player 8.0 can play back DVD video, but only if ahardware or software DVD decoder is already installed.You can also play MP3 audio files and MPEG videos, butsadly, not the popular RealMedia formats. In the end,Media Player does nothing that you cannot also do withfree alternatives, but it is slick and nicely integrated.The XP user interface is not a radical departure from earlier versions of Windows, but there are a number ofsmall changes that together add up to a significant improvement. The Start menu now automatically featuresthe most frequently used programs at the top of the list, and you can add and remove shortcuts by

Windows online help is integrated intoa Help and Support Center that works like an internal Web site, with searchable help, tutorials, andwalk-throughs.Windows XP Professional includes all the features of Windows XP Home, and adds support for dual processors,encryptable file systems, offline folders, the Remote Desktop as described above, and extra administrationfeatures that come into play when connected to a Windows server domain. XP is demanding on hardware, andit would be a mistake to install it on less than Microsofts recommended minimum requirements. There is alsoactivation to consider, a mildly annoying anti-piracy measure that requires you to obtain a code from Microsoftfor full installation, and in the future if you reinstall or make major system changes.Windows XP Service Pack 2 FeaturesInternetExplorer Pop-upBlockerMakes browsing the Internet more enjoyable by enabling you to reduce unwanted ads andcontent.InternetExplorerdownloadmonitoringWarns you about potentially harmful downloads and gives you the option to block files thatcould be malicious.InternetExplorerInformation BarProvides better information about events that are happening as you browse the Web, so it’seasier to know what’s going on and address potential security issues.WindowsSecurity CenterAllows you to easily view your security status and manage key security settings in oneconvenient place.WindowsFirewall updateAutomatically turned on by default, this improved firewall helps protect Windows XP fromviruses, worms, and other security threats that can spread over the Internet.Improvedwireless supportDramatically improves and simplifies the process of discovering and connecting to wirelessnetworks.BluetoothtechnologiesEnables you to easily connect to the latest Bluetooth-enabled hardware devices such askeyboards, cell phones, and PDAs.Windows MediaPlayer 9 SeriesMakes it easy to enjoy music, video, and broadband content with enhanced security.Read moreYou May Also LikeMicrosoft Windows 7 UltimateMicrosoft Windows 7 ProfessionalMicrosoft Windows XP Professional Full VersionMicrosoft Office Professional 2007 FULL VERSION [Old Version]Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate FULL VERSION [DVD] [OLD VERSION]
