Windows 7 and XP Pro.

The XP Pro system is so slow compared to my Windows 7 system. :'(
Of course it is, but put XP on the machine that now has 7 and see how much faster everything is.

The upgrade advisor has nothing to do with it. Of course it will tell you to run 7 because you can. XP will run faster than Windows 7 on any computer. It's just a fact of life. When XP was the new thing, you could put 98SE on a machine that came with XP and it would blaze. It's just a matter of the better hardware in the newer machine. As computers get faster and more capable, programmers find ways to use all that extra power and leave you with a machine that really doesn't do things any faster than the older ones did with the simpler OS. If you would put XP Pro on that better machine, it would be faster than W7. I have no doubts whatsoever about it.

I feel windows 8 would be another windows vista scenario. Requirements that are very high and a very buggy OS.

Windows XP till this machine dies a natural death.

A recent hard drive reformat, new modem, cleaning of the keyboard and tower case, and only just the programs I need on it, has my system running great.  Since all I do is E-Mail, Web Browsing, and Word Processing, upgrading to Windows 7 would probably not have me doing new things.  In short, this computer does everything that I need it to do, and for it's age (8 years) works just fine.

I have a relative who is a computer engineer and we will just start swapping out hardrives, OS updates and other upgrades when the time is needed to do that.

True and I was told the 2012 might come to an end before we might get a chance to drive the new OS :P
