Transform Windows XP into

Introduction to Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005:
Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition is one of the earliest steps in the evolution of touch screen PCs, giving you the freedom of touch with your personal computer.  Now-a-days computer manufacturing giants like Apple, HP, Samsung, etc. are inventing new styles of touch screen computers like iPad, Slate, Galaxy Tab, etc. Microsoft has created Windows 7 and Windows 8 which give you the freedom of touch to PC users.  Touch screens have lot of advantage, some of them are discussed on this link:



Today, most of the laptops are coming with touch screen facility.  If your LCD monitor lacks the facility of touch screen, you can get this facility in a very cheap way by installing Multi-Touch Screen Overlay (MTSO).  MTSO is like a soft-layered screen filter, which is connected with CPU via a USB connector, receives users input through the touch of fingers.

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE:
Since some application files might have been "patched" or "compressed" (packed) to work properly on your Windows operating system, therefore, some "false alarm" or "false positive" may happen to some clean *.exe installers/applications /installation processes, although they are actually CLEAN & SAFE and does not pose a threat to your system. The term "false positive" is used when an Anti-Virus Software wrongly classifies an innocuous (inoffensive) file as a Virus. This incorrect detection may be due to heuristics or to an incorrect virus signature in the database of Anti-Virus. Usually some great and famous Anti-Viruses (such as Kaspersky, AVG,Norman, McAfee, etc) won't have such problem so far. If that happens to you, then simply ignore it and continue installing as it's guaranteed actually 100% safe and clean by me and other guys who are posting these applications. But again, it's still your own choice and right to decide.

  7. whats the goal of this writing (except personal gain)? as comments written above, most links to key parts of software transformation are missing. this makes the above writing not usable, and not interesting to visitors. but: cascaded redirections from page to page loaded with much advertisement forced on users without giving them the declared transformation. dissappointing - usable for every but the visitors.
