Since XP was considered risky and my old laptop became much too slow I added Ubuntu to my desktop and used that. However due to my desktop having so little RAM Ubuntu was slow too so went back to using XP Yesterday I got great problems using XP so I reinstalled it using the cd. Some essential parts were missing so I was unable to use any browser in XP and had to go back to Ubuntu. I found it too difficult so I decided to try XP using a USB. That was a fatal mistake. I can now neither use my old laptop nor my old desktop so I am writing this from a friend's computer. What I would like to know is this. Can I download XP from the internet to my USB and then install it in my desktop so that I shall be able to use it to access the internet again? Or is Vista possible and a better choice? Thank you for helping.
