XP partitions refer to partitions under Windows XP systems, so let's take a closer look at Windows XP.
Windows XP is a line of operating systems produced by Microsoft for use on personal computers, including home and Professional desktops, laptops, and media centers. The name "XP" is short for "experience". Windows XP is the successor to both Windows 2000 Professional and Windows Me, and is the first consumer-oriented operating system produced by Microsoft to be built on the Windows NT kernel and architecture. Windows XP was first released on October 25, 2001, and over 400 million copies were in use in January 2006, according to an estimate in that month by an IDC analyst. It was succeeded by Windows Vista, which was released to volume license customers on November 8, 2006 and worldwide to the general public on January 30, 2007. Direct OEM and retail sales of Windows XP were ceased on June 30, 2008. Microsoft continued to sell XP through their Custom built PC (smaller OEMs who sell assembled computers) until January 31; 2009.XP may continue to be available as these sources run through their inventory or by purchasing Windows Vista Ultimate or Professional and then downgrading to Windows XP.
Windows XP is widely used in different many areas.
