Microsoft Windows® XP Home Edition gives you the freedom to experience more than you ever thought possible with your home computer and the Internet. With a variety of new tools and better ease-of-use, Windows XP appeals to all home users! If you are a current Windows user and are considering whether to upgrade, here are ten reasons to give Windows XP a try:

1. Fast-User Switching
Share a single computer with everyone in your family? Now you can each access your own personalized accounts without having to close each other's applications or restart the computer.

2. New Simplified Visual Design
The clean, simple design of Windows XP puts the features you use most often up front and center, so you can get to them quickly. It also allows you to personalize your welcome screen, start menu and system settings.

3. Windows Media Player for Windows XP
Windows Media Player for Windows XP gives you a single, easy-to-use place to play DVDs, organize music, burn CDs, and more. It's also the first media player with integrated full-screen video controls for all supported video types, including Windows Media Video and DVDs.

4. Windows Messenger
Windows Messenger is the easy way to communicate with your friends and family in real time. You can see who is online and choose to communicate through text messaging, voice, or video with excellent performance and better quality than ever. Windows Messenger even features the ability to send text messages to cell phones and pagers.

5. Windows Movie Maker
Windows Movie Maker lets you capture, edit, organize, and share home movies on your computer, whether you made them with a digital video camera or an analog camera. Thanks to Windows Media compression technologies, movies created with Windows Movie Maker are relatively smaller in size and are more practical to share via e-mail or a Web site.

6. My Pictures
My Pictures is the place to work with your digital photos. Here you can organize, preview, and even order prints of your pictures via a Web service. Once your digital camera or scanner is connected to your computer, your pictures are ready for viewing!

7. Internet Explorer 6
Internet Explorer 6 includes new and better features to simplify Web browsing tasks, increase reliability, and help keep your personal information private. The latest version of Internet Explorer also features innovative browser capabilities, media playback, automatic picture resizing and more so you can experience the Web exactly the way you want.

8. Remote Assistance
Remote Assistance lets you allow a friend or support professional who is also running Windows XP to remotely control your computer to demonstrate a process or help solve a problem. It also includes the newly designed Help and Support Center, an all-in-one reference resource that is easily accessible from the Start menu.

9. System Restore
System Restore actively monitors system file changes, so that if something goes wrong with your computer, you can restore your system to a previous state without losing data.

10. Network Setup Wizard
Network Setup Wizard makes it easier than ever to set up your own home network so all the computers in your house can share printers, devices, files, and an Internet. Windows XP Home Edition's Internet Connection Firewall also keeps your personal information and financial data secure.
