Expected to be released in the third quarter of this year, XP will be available in several forms, including Windows XP Home Edition for consumers and small businesses and Windows XP Professional for larger versions. A third version, Windows XP 64 bit edition, will be available for technical workstation users.

“Windows XP represents the realisation of a dream of Microsoft for a long time,” said Bill Gates, chairman and chief software architect, Microsoft.” Take the code base of Windows NT and make it the code base of the entire PC.”

Also included in the XP family is the embedded server version, code named Talisker, and the server version, which the company has yet to name. The Home, Professional and 64-bit editions of XP expected to be released to manufacturing early in the third quarter of this year. The server version of Windows XP will be released later.
