Windows XP

The client version of Windows superseding Windows 2000 and prior to Windows Vista. Introduced in 2001, XP was a major upgrade with many changes to the user interface. XP improved support for gaming, digital photography, instant messaging, wireless networking and Internet connection sharing. It also added a personal firewall (see Windows Firewall). Although XP is a client operating system, it also functions as a server (see peer-to-peer network).

Home Vs. Pro

For example, XP Pro can log in to a domain-based network in an office, but XP Home cannot. XP Pro can also be run remotely, and it supports Intel's Hyper-Threading (see Remote Desktop and HyperThreading).
