1. What ever made you downgrade from Windows 7 ???
<snip>

Bob,

You obviously never tried Windows 7, it's the worst OS ever!

I hate it.

Fortunately, my desktop has XP on it :), it's the one I spend most of my computer time on.

XP is the best OS ever! 8)

My laptop is the one with 7.  I only have to put up with it if I need to take it with me,

otherwise I occasionally start it up just to keep it updated.


I've been a beta tester since I can't remember when.
Windows 7 is the best OS Microsoft has produced up till now.

rdmaloyjr,
Unlike you, I like to keep up to date and at this point, XP is no longer the way to go.
If you enjoy it and aren't willing to learn or utilize the improvements built into Windows 7 then by all means,
remain with XP. It's your system and your right but please don't try to talk someone else into going backwards.


I wasn't trying to talk someone else into going backwards, I was agreeing with pmal67 for doing so.

However, I believe going from 7 to XP is going forward.  It's a shame that 7 isn't a better OS than XP.

I like to keep up to date, that's why I requested my free upgrade to 7, it turned out to be a booby prize. :'(

Bob,

It isn't within my power to make MS make a better OS than XP, maybe they will listen to you....

Yes if you install Windows 7 your computer will explode in a big ball of smoke and flame. Don't ever use it, it is the worst OS ever. You even have to learn how to use it, i mean wtf is up with that ? They changed the GUI and now i am supposed to learn everything anew ??! They even went ahead and put in a load of new security features like UAC which is just bloody annoying, never mind that i can turn it off, i still hate it. And they even made it faster, why would they want to do that ??! How do MS live with themselves after releasing such a rubbish OS ?  ::)

My Windows 7 is much faster than my XP, but that's due to the hardware, dual processors, to being a 64bit OS & more RAM.

But due to XP being a better OS I hardly notice. :)

As rdmaloyjr is standing on a pile of rubish its hard to see goodness and likes to stay with the old stuff as learning new things requires learning.  ;)

Hello all , things certainly seem to be hotting up !!!!
I agree with you all !! yes as an Irishman that is possible !!!!!!!!!!!!! why I hear you all collectively ask well here goes ,
1. xp pro for me is easy to use i.e. to fix problems that may occur yourself it is user friendly which is why I bought a laptop that could be downgraded.
2. windows 7 is not easy for the novice certainly not for the first time user to get to grips with .

Your replies were all interesting to read and thanks again for your valuable time and I think that you will all have to agree to disagree

As with anything new it takes time to learn.  ;)

Then there are those that refuse to learn and eventually will become extinct just like the Dinosaurs did many years ago but those able to accept change will survive. 8)

I have always believed:
Change is inevitable except from a vending machine!
