WINDOWS® XP
A REVIEW
by Mr. Computer
I recently puchased a new computer, or as my wife likes to call it, a two-thousand-dollar typewriter. Of course it came with the latest operating system, Windows® XP, from a company even the missus has heard of, Microsoft.
Well, I have to tell you, getting the damn thing out of the box requires an engineering degree, but once everything's set up and loaded in, it works like a dream. That is, until the cat trips over the extension cord, shutting off power to the computer, as well as knocking over a lamp. Leave it to my better half to buy drapes that aren't fire-retardant. The next thing you know, the house is engulfed in flames and we're living in a campground about fifty miles outside of town.
As for Windows® XP, my evaluation will have to wait - until we get electricity.
