Introduction

Microsoft® Windows® XP offers you many new features. And its excellent overall performance—which includes dramatically faster boot and resume times, along with highly responsive applications—creates the conditions for a very satisfying user experience.

For most computers that meet Microsoft's minimum recommended hardware requirements, Windows XP is the best-performing Windows operating system ever created. This paper addresses some of the key performance improvements in Windows XP, and highlights some of the issues you should keep in mind when evaluating a system configuration.

Because Windows XP is still in development, Microsoft is not able to provide you with hard performance numbers at this time—though benchmarks from an objective, third-party reviewer will be provided in the not-too-distant future. Until then, the information presented here will help you understand more about Windows XP and about its resource requirements.
