I picked up a P4 with Windows XP but after seeing strong opinions expressed here about latency being much greater than on W98SE, and after having seen W98SE preferred here for a long time, I installed W98SE.

I\'m a piano player and would like eventually to use Giga for live performance, I realize the latency issue doesn\'t affect everyone.

On a related topic someone told me XP is the way to go, so I\'m confused. Regarding drivers on a P4, XP is certainly more convenient.

I\'d very much appreciate your recommendations.
