With Windows XP Professional SP3, you get safer browsing and
communication, powerful security tools, and improved experiences.
Windows XP is the operating system release that unifies the Microsoft
range, with all the desktop versions now built on the NT/2000 code
base rather than the shakier foundation of Windows 95, 98, and Me.
That makes XP a great upgrade for users of the now-obsolete 9x and Me
line, but for those already on Windows 2000 Professional it is a
closer call. Despite the similar name, there is no special synergy
between Windows XP and Office XP.
