Windows XP is one of the most popular operating systems in the world. It was first released on August 24, 2001. By January 2006, over 400 million copies were in use. Despite the fact that it was replaced by Vista in 2007, Windows 7 in 2009, and Windows 8 in 2012, XP remains one of the most popular operating systems in the world, especially in businesses. That’s why we have made it available for you to download for free with our windows xp iso.
As of February 2013, Windows XP still had a 38.99% market share, though it is slowly declining.
Windows XP stands for Windows eXPerience, which showed Microsoft’s focus on the user experience in this operating system. With the release of this OS, many of the visual features were given complete makeovers, including the Start menu and the taskbar.
Drop shadows were added, users were given the ability to group windows of the same program under one button on the taskbar, and users could also lock the taskbar to prevent unintended changes. This was the first truly “user friendly” operating system that the PC world had seen.
The system requirements for Windows XP are fairly low by today’s standards. You need a minimum of a 233 MHz processor, 64 MB of ram, and a Super VGA video adapter with an 800 x 600 resolution or higher. You also needed 1.5 GB of hard drive space for the base OS, another 661 MB for the first Service Pack, another 1.8 GB for the second service pack, and 900 MB for the third service pack.
If you wanted to run Windows XP at the recommended specs, you’d need a minimum of a 300 MHz processor and at least 128 MB of ram. However, the specs for the video adapter and hard drive space stayed the same. You’d also need a keyboard and mouse, as well as a sound card for your computer to function properly.
Windows XP had hardware limitations as well though. Window XP Professional, Home Edition, Media Center Edition, and Tablet PC Edition all had a maximum of 4 GB of ram. The Starter Edition had a maximum of 512 MB of ram, while the Processional x64 Edition had a maximum of 128 GB of ram that it could support.
Overall, Windows XP is one of the best OS on the market. Many businesses and schools around the world still use Windows XP because of the customarily and easy to use user interface that the operating system provides. However, since Microsoft will stop supporting Windows XP on April 8, 2014, many places are being forced to upgrade to a newer version of Windows or to a different operating system all together.
