Really? When you bought you last comp, what software was included?

Win XP Home SP2 ?

So please ensure that you're also running:

Wordpad XP SP2
Internet Explorer XP SP2
MS MediaPlayer XP SP2
Open Office XP SP 2
McAfee VirusScan XP SP2

... and lookung at the Linux distributions ...

Taking Red Hat 9.0 ... you may expect also

bash 9.0
gcc 9.0
xfree 9.0
gnome 9.0
mplayer 9.0

well, if you find something different, you might write an open letter to Microsoft and Red Hat that they really ensure, that all delivered applications have the same version the next time.
