Windows XP's New Multiuser and Multiple-PC Features

Because Windows XP is built on the Windows 2000 engine, and because Windows 2000 was designed to be a multiuser network-enabled operating system, it makes sense that XP would include a bevy of multiuser and networking features. Chief among these features are XP's new user accounts, the new Network Setup Wizard, and the even newer (included with SP2) Wireless Network Setup Wizard.

XP also includes the capability to set up a single network card with two separate network configurations (great for portable PCs used both at home and at work). You can also use XP's “network bridge” capability to connect two separate network segments—even if those segments use different networking technologies. (For example, you can use XP to “bridge” a wireless network to a wired Ethernet network.)
