Er is al een aantal nieuwsberichten geweest over WindowsXP en games. Heb je nog twijfels, dan heb je wel iets aan het WindowsXP gaming artikel van GamePC. Het nieuwste O.S. van Microsoft wordt eens goed bekeken met verschillende games en de bekende benchmark tool 3DMark2001. De conclusie is dezelfde als voorgaande berichten. Gebruik je Windows2000 en ben je tevreden, dan is er geen reden om over te stappen. Gebruik je 95/98 of ME, dan zou zijn er voldoende redenen om over te stappen.While some initial hardware issues have risen with oddball hardware, the general consensus is that Microsoft's latest OS is a winner. I tend to agree. I like Windows XP quite a bit, and if it weren't for that annoying product activation, I would recommend the upgrade to every PC user out there.

So, the question. Is it worth the upgrade? Windows 2000 users shouldn't feel the need to upgrade, unless the visuals or new features of the OS catch your fancy. In terms of performance and stability, XP and 2000 are very, very similar. For Win9X and ME users, you should seriously consider upgrading to XP, as the added stability of the 32-bit NT kernal is worth the money by itself. If you're in the market for a new PC, don't bother with a PC without XP, it's really that simple. SERIOUS SAM 1600x1200x32 - Metropolis Co-Op Demo (Higher Scores are Better) ME was geen succes, maar met XP lijkt Microsoft op de goede weg. Meer getallen, nummers en cijfers vind je op GamePC.
