Windows 2000 after a facelift. The Professional variant is a decent, robust OS with very few nagging points (provided that you disable all of the extraneous garbage and useless services). The Home Edition variant, however, is crippleware aimed solely at the computer illiterate soccor mom who couldn't tell a mouse from her studded leather dildo; contrary to popular belief, it is crash-prone and becomes very unstable when running more than 2 applications at once. It's "Luna" theme, by the way, is a laughable ripoff of Apple's "Aqua" design theme that is nowhere near being as elegant and intuitive.

I don't like Macs very much, but I'd take OSX's svelt brushed metal and blue orb design over Windows XP's clunky blue-and-red coloring book design ANY day.
Windows XP Professional - A worthy successor of Windows 2000
Windows XP Home Edition - Dumbed-down bullshit OS that puts the Win2K kernel to shame. Is only marginally more stable than Windows ME, and just as worthless.

Windows XP is the latest operating system published by Microsoft Corp. America. It is an accronym for 'Xtreme Performance' and incorporates a wide sense of user friendliness and professional usage capability. Codenamed Whistler after a certain hotel, it is estimated to have captivated over 95% of all computer companies, thus rendering itself the monopolistically dominant computer operating system in the world. Its predecessor is Windows NT, and its successor is said to be Windows Vista Codename: Longhorn, surfacing in 2006.
Windows XP is the most popular operating system in the known world.

An OS that was decent from Microsoft in 2001. After years and years go on, you kinda keep Windows XP because you have it. This doesn't apply to those who use those fancy Macs or actually have Windows 7 or above and other shit, I'm not a techie. Anyways, why does XP treat me like a fucking 3 year-old?
In 2001:
" Look at me, my Window XP will suit my needs... of watching porn (WAT!!!)"

In 2013:
" I can update to Windows XP anytime now, wait why am I still in my parents basement???"

In 2025
"Still using Windows XP, *munch munch*

That 3D dog used to be cute a decade ago...

Another fine Weapon of Mass Annoyance from the Osama Bin Gates terror cell.
Ready to forge an international coalition and call it Operation Infinite Folly: shock and awe Redmond with mass quantities of inconvenient error reports. I want to choke the bastard who thought of that one.

A fairly good computer created by Microsoft. Just do defragmentations often, and erase all that porn. "Send error reports" can be annoying. Crashes very little if you keep it clean. Best yet of all computers.
Guy 1: Dude! I just cleaned my XP! It goes a billion times faster now!

An operating system based on the PlaySkool interface. Magically appeared after Apple introduced it's "Aqua" environment, making the first move to make a computer operating system more enjoyable, and pleasing to the eye. Basically, take Windows 98 and Windows 2000, mix them together and add PlaySkool design techniques, and you have Windows XP.
XP User: Whoa dude check out my new Windows XP i just bought! My start button is GREEN! HEHEHE!!!
Mac User: Oh umm, ok sure.. check this out *moves pointer across dock as it expands*
XP User: Whoa thats slick, where did you download that!?
Mac User: Um, i didn't download anything, I purchased a computer from the correct section of the store at CompUSA.

A simple yet complex OS, Microsoft has released on October 25, in year 2001. This OS seems to be a highly bloated system based off of the Windows 2000 Professional counterpart. One thing about the biggest difference is IT'S FISHER PRICE THEME .Once setup with proper drivers for display and Video card Non

Microsoft signed Drivers as of Microsoft's cheap drivers when the graphics are set first. You will experience this Luna (Default Blue) .msstyle is quite hideous. Most people seem to move back to Classic or the the Olive (Green) .msstyle or the Silver. Yet none of them seem, to kick it off right! I prefer Classic or Olive (Green) mmm Greeny!
Dude 1. I got Windows XP
Dude 2. Hm Luna blue Fisher Price theme is yo theme?
Dude 1. Well um Whoa?
Dude 2. Dude you can change the theme to Olive or Silver!
Dude 1 Really? huh show me!
Dude 2. Oh dear lord *shows him Olive and Silver*
Dude 1. Oh ya I like Olive (Green)
Dude 2. Ahh good now both our eyes can feel bit better and not make me wanna puke jelly beans!
