  1. I'm pefertly satisfied with MS Me on my Dell laptop, but with my plans
    to began making films I'm wondering if I should upgrade to MS XP?

    Windows Me is a joke. From the line of Windows from Win95 up through
    any current version, Me is the least stable of the bunch.

    For doing video work, you'd probably want something a bit more robust
    like Win2k or XP. That, plus you'll want either of those OS's so that
    you can work with files larger than 4GB.

    If the computer isn't a very fast one, I would recommend Win2k, if it has
    to be from Microsoft. The GUI on XP slows it further down, and Win2k have
    had some time to have a lot of bugs corrected.

    upgrading laptops is usually trickier. Make sure the drivers for your laptop
    don't ONLY exist for 'Me'
