Its a nice operating system, better then 98 by far.
Its a little high in Price
You can get free versions of this around, so $312 seems a litle to high, its easy to use, better layout then 98.

Experience: 2 Years


-Easy to use
-Easyer to use then Linux

-Needs to's make it a smaller install as well as a bit faster with better ram mangagement
-Not Linux
-SP2 sucks makes stuff so much harder (SP2= service pack 2)
Its ok but the price needs to drop cuzz you can get a cracked verion that will do the same stuff for alot cheeper, it isnt anything to good or anything it needs to be faster and microsoft has to deal with the hole virus issues.

Experience: 12 Months


Great user interface
This has to be their best effort yet into a Operating System so far since Win98. The interface is easy to use once you familiarize yourself with how to set it up right. Highly recommend!
