The best os ever is XP!

7 sucks. :(
Sound's like someone needs to relearn computers, i certainly dont regret moving up to win 7  ;D

The more I learn 7, the less I like it. :(  And the more I long for XP. :'(

I have yet to be impressed by win7, yes there are some useful functions, but I wouldn't call them crucial must have. But overall I still prefer XP Pro, I certainly have more control over it, that computer seems to belong to me and not the OS.

rdmaloyjr,
If you currently have Windows 7 on your system, you can always install XP on a seperate partition.

If you have XP, then unless you're constantly using Win 7 elsewhere, you can't really fairly judge.
There is always a learning curve. There certainly was such a learning curve when XP first came out. :)

Yeah, you're right XP is the best OS, until 2 years ago...

Don't you think 9 or 10 years are a bit too old for an OS? I think it's time to move on now...

I totally agree!  I'm waiting for M$ to come out with an os that's better than XP.

I have a feeling that it's going to be a very long wait. ::)

Indeed I feel Windows 7 much better than XP... But much much better... Maybe it's because my computer is also better than when I was using XP ;D

BTW, the harddrive in my XP machine went out again.

I'm using it with a Live Puppy Linux CD, very fast. :)

It's a shame I can't afford W7 :( Boo. But Windows XP, after all these years, is doing just fine. (Apparently, it's "death" will be in 2014 when Windows will no longer update it.)
But I know it as a lot of people I know have it. I also have Vista, but it's really slow and "kind of" complicated....as in "the OS has a mind of its own and doesn't belong to me.." that's what I feel like anyway. But I must admit from what I see and experience that Windows 7 is really light and fast. Kind of better Vista. And the graphics are amazing.

People...if I remember correctly MicroSoft took the best of XP and the best of Vista and got rid of all the bad things of both and created Windows 7. So you get the best of both worlds.  :)

And I love Win7 over Vista any day.  8)

Shame on me...I used to think Win7 was actually rubbish (British speaking person here  ::)). Dunno why, I just felt it.

But I guess the more I use it somewhere, then the more interesting it seems.

Windows XP is actually more present in places like work, schools, and library computers, since it's cheaper than Vista or Win7, but it's still very popular.
