    Windows Whistler is the codename for the first joint business/consumer version of Windows built on the Windows 2000 OS kernel for stability and reliability. To bring the reliability of Windows 2000 to consumers as soon as possible and address the feedback from enterprise customers, Microsoft planned a phased release of Windows XP beginning with the desktop products and followed by the server versions. Windows XP is their first step in the Microsoft .Net vision.

    In addition to what Dan O said, Win XP (formerly known as codename "Whistler") is the first OS by M$ that converges the W2K, Win NT, and Win9.x code bases. Furthermore, the intial release is a 32-bit OS but M$ plans to release a subsequent 64-bit OS version designed to run on Pentium's Itantium processor.

    On the subject of Win XP, i don't run it. But at the several computer forums i participate, i notice one overwhelming pattern of concern. Time after time, i see so many postings with people having various on their system after SP 1 has been installed.

    I have been using W2k (SP3) for the past 2-3 years and it's performed virtuously flawlessly. It's a personal thing, but i wouldn't want XP on my computer - i'm looking for Longhorn to be released. That will most likely be my next upgrade.
