Your NT upgrade has finally arrived - Looking to upgrade from your aging Windows NT environment? Many corporations eschewed Windows 2000 as it was well known that 2000 (NT 5, for all intents and purposes) was a brief stop for Microsoft, which was already hard at work on XP. If you are viewing 2000 as the XP beta, you can be assured that it's now time-tested and ready to rock!Written for humans by humans!

Reviews about Special Edition Using Microsoft(R) Windows XP, Home Edition (7):
I have been dual platform user ever since, i.e., Windows on the job and Mac at home. I have owned 2 Macs at home for past 12 years. However, I purchased a PC with Windows XP just a month ago for my home. At the same time I bought this book. In the book the authors described the Windows XP in a very comprehensive and systematic way that I learned a great deal about Windows XP. Although I am familiar with Windows 95 and NT and have used Windows 2000, Windows XP is so different and advanced that I feel glad about my decision to switch to Windows at home, because most of the objections I have been holding against Windows in the Windows vs Mac argument have evaporated. For one exemple, Mac users have long objected that Windows does not know "where its mouth, nose, and ears are". Windows XP now detects many new hardware that is attached to your PC and attempts to guess what you want to do with that hardware. This book is really a blessing for me to switch successfully from Mac to Windows. Last but not least, I sent an e-mail to the authors seeking further help after reading the book. I got prompt reply with helpful advice.
This is probably okay for average or slightly above average home user - not for Dummies or advanced users.
This book covers just about everything you need to know when using XP Home Edition. The level of information contained surpassed my expectations. It covers topics ranging from the history and evolution of Windows to choosing a network and cabling system, to multi-booting with Linux.
For first-time users the new XP features are explained in detail. For experienced users, these new features are compared with features from previous operating systems, bringing a smooth transition to this powerful operating system. If you have not made the jump to XP yet, I assure you will be convinced to move after reading the first chapter of this book.
The book is not intended to be read from chapter 1 to the end in sequence. Basic XP interface usage is explained from Ch.4 through Ch.7, but then there's a whole bunch of additional Graphical User Interface (GUI) information covered in Ch. 21. I would have grouped all these chapters together before getting into more advanced topics, but I guess the authors had a purpose for that.
The Bob and Brian's Signature Tips are a plus in this book. Together with the Notes and Cautions the reader obtains valuable real-world information and is also encouraged to experiment with the software.
What I enjoyed most about this book was that the authors did not limit coverage to simply the XP OS, they also wrote about useful 3rd party utilities such as Tweak UI, Partition Magic and Virtual PC that provide additional functionality to the XP system.
This book is highly recommended for everyone new to Windows XP, and for experienced users of previous OS's that made or are planning to make the upgrade. Windows XP Home is an entirely different OS and you should have this book handy so you don't miss the many new features it provides.
5 stars and 100% recommended.
I bought this book as a resource and an overview of XP Home Edition. I got much more than I bargained for. I read the entire book, cover to cover (skimming parts that didn't apply to me, of course); and over-all I found the book to be written in understandable language and in a tone that will appeal to many lay readers of computer literature. The authors have done an excellent job of relaying technical information in a way that is not stuffy and actually holds the reader's attention (most of the time). This is worth the money.
I sat down and read its 950+ pages from cover to cover. It is well written and organized and is successful in 2 ways. First, it offers an excellent overview and explanation of arcane and cryptic things like the Windows registry, disk partitioning, and Network Address Translation in a way that suffices perfectly for the educated but causal user who wants to know more about his computer. Secondly, it provides detailed descriptions of specific thing a user can do, from monitoring CPU usage to sharing files across networks to configuring the desktop. There are also numerous troubleshooting sections where you can learn what to do when things inevitably go wrong. I have been using Windows for 5 years and XP for 4 months, and only just decided to educate myself about all it can do. This book added tremendously to my knowledge, and I feel inspired to learn even more. Now I can diagnose problems more easily, plan new computer projects, and save money on software, since a lot of software that is available does things that Windows can do already. Highly recommended for anyone who is not already a power user.
