My personal favourite tip is being able to see a quick list of all shared folders, all accessed folders, and all active programs; perfect if you think some person may be accessing your PC without your knowledge. Once you've mastered WindowsXP, you'll want to see PCstats review of some sweet PC4300 DDR533 memory from newcomers Buffalo Technology.
