Microst XP is one of the best softwares ever made. Even though there have new developments such as Vista, Winows7, and Windows 8, one has to mention the role that XP has played in us developing the knowledge and ease of use of the later versions. Furthermore, many games, educational software, and other sofwares sold in stores have XP as a standard requirement still based on knowing that a lot of people are still impressed with its capacity. When I personally repair computers I recommend XP based on the year of the model of the computer. Due to the fact that technology is going all touch screen in the future, it seems as though XP may no longer be needed but if we are to learn a lot about the applications of a computer it is a great start. In using the later models a lot of people are having a hard time finding programs due to their new locations on the microsoft program but because they had good knowledge of the XP software they have ideas as to what categories programs and commands are a part of.
