O.k. - My daughter is in college & wants a Laptop instead of a desktop (o.k. with me, as I'll be inheriting this 1 year old computer plus I won't have to lug it up all thoses flights in her dorm). What I want to know is which O/S works better (less errors). I realize this is for the most part a matter of preference, but it would be nice if I could avoid any horror stories! I know what Win 98' is like, but haven't heard much about Win XP. Any takers?
