CNN: "We had an opportunity to test drive an evaluation copy of Windows XP Professional, scheduled
for official release on Oct. 25, and were impressed by improvements in its user friendliness,
stability, speed and performance.
At the same time, we were a little bit concerned about its lack of compatibility with some
software that has been developed specifically for earlier versions of Windows and won't work
with Windows XP. But on balance, the improvements outweighed the compatibility issues, many
of which are likely to be further addressed in the weeks ahead."
