    I've watched others use XP more than I ever used it myself. The
    person was asked 2 or 3 times "do you really want to delete that
    file?". And similar questions for any other commands that could be
    semi destructive. Maybe it was their settings too????

    No, but that is just one example of many other unneeded changes.

    See above

    OK, Thanks.
    Just curious about the inbuilt CD burning. Does that mean that with
    XP you have the software built into the OS for burning CDs?
    I see that as "ADDED SOFTWARE", not really an improvement in the OS,
    but I'll wait and see what they really did before I make a judgement.

    Yes, I do know it can handle more memory. You got a point there.

    What is CLEARTYPE?

    You won't ever use it. It stinks.

    I use DeepBurner, as always.
