It'* an OS and it'* got more in it then you'll believe. 96 isn't bad at all, when just an UPDATE to Mac OS 10-10.2 is $130.....

Oh yeah, games are really only good on PC'*. Macs don't have nearly the hardware support for the newest Video cards (usually a generation behind) and most companies just don't write games for them... Not worth it to them.

Mac, yeah, but Lindows or Linux?? It allows you to write your own drivers for hardware, I suppose, if you're language savvy. I'm to lazy for that.

It won't have Office unless you buy it, for around $400. It'll just have Outlook Express, and IE 6.0.

XP home is a really good OS. In my experience and research, XP Pro is alot less buggy, but it should work well for you. Here'* my info center on XP:

www.winxpnews.com <-- Full of awesome secrets and tips. If you have Windows XP Home or Pro, I highly recommend.
