 Come find out why WindowsXP will revolutionize the way you interact with your computer.  Windows XP extends your experience beyond the desktop and provides you with the best of the digital age.

 Here are just some of the areas you’ll learn about in Windows XP: 

  Help others without having to leave the comfort of your home
With “remote assistance,” users needing help can invite a friend or support professional to connect to their computer over the Internet to fix a problem or answer a question. If your friends need help with their computers, you can do it from your own machine.

 Digital Photos 

Windows XP Home Edition boxRecord life’s memories by easily acquiring, organizing, and sharing digital photos. Windows XP will help you get digital images from a scanner, web page or digital camera and then keep them organized the way you want them. Once you have them, with just a few clicks, you can print them on your color printer, send them to a photo finisher to create prints or automatically optimize them to email to friends.



You’ll see the new Windows Media Player, the all-in-one place for the discovery, download, storage, and playback of the highest quality digital music. Windows Media Player allows you to create custom play lists based on artists, titles or genres. You can easily burn CDs or move songs to your portable music device. With the WMA file format, you get CD-quality sound at half the file size of an .MP3 file.

Windows XP’s Movie Maker feature makes everyone a director. It gives you everything you need to create, share, and enjoy videos on your computer. You’ll be quickly able to edit your home movies or digital video footage. Windows Media Player also does a great job playing DVD videos.

With dramatic enhancements to the audio and video performance, your games have never sounded and looked this good. Hear it and see it for yourself.

With the new Windows Messenger, you can communicate with your friends and family. With a microphone and camera, you can easily add voice and video to make this a great way to stay in touch with loved ones.

  Connected Home
Easily connect and share the computers and devices in your home. If you’ve got more than one computer in your house, the home networking wizard will make it much easier for you to connect them to each other and share printers and other devices.

 While you’re waiting, you can test-drive Windows XP Professional Release Candidate 2. Try before you buy!  Details can be found at: http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/preview/

 You don't have to call ahead or register—simply show up and experience the newest version of Microsoft Windows XP.
