Windows XP and High-End systems...

I heard that windows xp performance with high-end system (I mean, a quad-core processor) is very poor compared to windows vista... is that true?? and I read that just the professional edition support dual-core processors... is that true?? and does it support a quad-core processor??

  1. I'm dual booting between WinXP Pro 32 and Vista 64 Home Premium, with a quad core CPU, and 4G of system memory.

    WinXP hasn't had the first problem doing anything I've thrown at it to do and I haven't had to disable any cores to do it, WinXP has done some of the fastest DVD ripping to hardrive I've ever seen with the quad core CPU.
  2. XP pro is limited to 2 physical CPUs = dual socket motherboard. XP will handle quad cores just fine.
