Very cool. I thought it was running the new kernel like MCE does. MCE is a little faster than XP is.


Media Centre uses the Professional Kerneral. Basically MCE is Windows XP Pro with extra stuff installed on it.

I would advise that you type messages that we can understand, or I will start
deleting them.

Thank you. I hate it when people type messages like that.

Back on topic: How is work coming on that translation KenOath?

I've just come across something on a Microsoft website for XP Starter Edition, http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/newsroom/winxp/WinXPStarterFS.mspx
There it says:

Quote:
Windows XP Starter Edition Geographic and Language Availability

Windows XP Starter Edition ships on low-cost PCs sold by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and Microsoft OEM distributors in more than 88 countries around the world, and is localized into 25 languages. Two multilingual versions of Windows XP Starter Edition were released earlier this year. These multilingual editions will enable people in and Malaysia to operate PCs in their native languages or English. An English version has also recently been released for distribution to most emerging markets worldwide.


That sounds interesting. It means there is an English version of XP Starter Edition. Now to know how to get our hands on that. Maybe ringing MS?

Also on that page, it mentions the (maximum) system requirements have been changed for XP Starter.

Quote:

PCs with Intel Pentium 4 processors not supporting Hyper-Threading Technology


PCs with Intel Pentium 4 processor models 541, 531 and 524 supporting Hyper-Threading Technology


PCs with AMD™ Athlon™ XP, Duron, Geode or Sempron processors


PCs with similar value processors from other manufacturers


233 MHz processor minimum, 300 MHz or higher recommended

So that means that it'll only work on 32bit single core processors. So it appears to be the opposite of Windows XP x64.

I'd like to know what happens if XP Starter is installed on a PC that exceeds these maximum requirements, i.e. features a 64-bit CPU, for example. Will it work although it's unsupported or will it refuse to work...

(Anyway, I'm glad MS has released Windows FLP by now – I like it much more than the regular XP, and that was what my old P3-600, 128MB laptop needed when it came to Windows as an OS (until I sold it):))
