Windows XP is the latest version of Windows, and Windows XP Home Edition is the version that's intended for use in homes and small offices. It's an update of both Windows ME (Microsoft's home version of Windows) and Windows 2000 (the corporate version), with many improvements on both, and it comes loaded on most new IBM-compatible PCs. Our mammoth book includes an enormous range of topics, from configuring your desktop to getting on line to configuring your web browser to setting up LANs and Internet connections to coercing ancient DOS applications to run. Every page offers the benefits of our hand-to-hand combat with Windows XP, so you can get going and up to speed fast. This book also covers Service Pack 1 (SP1), the downloadable collection of bug-fixes and upgrades that Microsoft released in September 2002, and which comes pre-installed on new Windows XP computers.
