Windows XP SP2 Windows XP is the OS that simply will not die, and for good reason: It’s mature, stable, and – – most important — fast as the wind on today’s hardware. In fact, Windows XP outpaced its younger siblings by a factor of two during multiprocess workload testing — concurrent database, workflow, and multimedia tasks on our dual-core test bed and by up to 66 percent on our quad-core test bed.
Considering Windows 7 is beta, maybe his speed right now is just half of its total speed when the final release comes. So we better hold our judgments for now. And XP, it’s old much more stable and faster right? –but how about Windows ‘98? We just need to embrace change, what’s in and what technology trend will bring us.
