Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Review Coursework Commentary.

Extracts from this document...


Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition Review Coursework Commentary My piece of coursework is a review of the recently released computer operating system, Windows XP Home Edition. It is written for a PC magazine, for example PC Plus. Such a publication is aimed at the experienced computer user and excessive knowledge of computer terminology and functionality is often required. Simple examples from the text include 'Operating System' (abbreviated 'OS'), hardware, and software. 'Operating System' refers to Windows itself whereas hardware and software refer to computer devices and programs respectively.

As previously mentioned, the detail of the review is limited. The necessary data is given to the audience so that they can make a choice of whether to purchase the product or not. I have concluded the review with a short paragraph about my opinions, which summarises the points throughout the article. At the end is a ten-point grading system which rates the most significant aspects of Windows XP, as ell as presenting an overall score. In progression from my previous draft, a variety of features have been changed. The columns have replaced the standard line-by-line layout, and the screenshots add authenticity to the document. The title has an added sub-caption and the reviewers name is now included. The whole text has been re-checked and modified in places where I found necessary. ...read more.
