Windows XP

I was looking at a book about Microsoft XP and Office and part of it read something like this.

"Your office just upgraded its computers to Window XP. As the IT person you should read this book to know what has changed so you can help users if they have questions. Questions, such as:

'Why is my computer slower running Windows XP?'

'Help bubbles keep popping up and telling me that I have a USB 2 device on a USB 1 port, I &*$*&$ know that!'

'I hear that XP is the first version of Windows to ship with viruses preinstalled, is this true?'

'The paper clip keeps autocorrecting my files when he shouldn't, is killing a paper clip murder?'

* Please note that parts of this work were fictionalized.
