Truly a great OS. And I will be using it until at least 2014.
Windows 7 is gaining.
I almost don't want XP to die - it's so much easier a target compared to any modern OS it kinda keeps the heat off of the rest of the world.
windows xp user here
I think XP is microsoft best build to date after service pk 1. IMO it was smooth and trouble free for the most part.Windows 7 is pretty good compared to vista that gave me more blue screens of death other then ME that was a total joke.
long live xp. Runs like a champ even on a lowly netbook.
XP will be a pallbearer at windows 7 funeral just like it was present at vistas untimely demise.
You would think after all the years that bill gates buildin OS and all the money he would have the best,most stable and secure OS in the world.Should have spent more time with steve jobs god rest his soul.
Yes indeed! They were close friends in the beginning
Now thats not a nice thing to think let alone to say out loud in public. (but it is no doubt true)
Is this really true or some kind of cyber-urban myth? Having said that, I know at least two people personally still running XP who recently have contracted infections. I think it was a clickjacker in both circumstances.
Whilst I admit Win 7 is in many ways an improvement over Vista, I have had virtually no trouble with my Vista machine for over three years. Vista was anything but a joke. I certainly preferred it to XP.
...! It is a joke of yours', please yes?
Honestly, I've not had any problems with Vista. It is a bit RAM intensive though. I think that it just got an early bad reputation, particularly in the US, but by the time it got to Europe they more or less fixed it (especially after service pack 2).
I also think that it became a bit of an Internet joke & that actually damaged Vista sales. IMO, most of the people who joke about Vista have never actually used it.
I suppose you speak as you find things. Now ... Safari for Windows ... there's a bit of a joke ...
I had a lot of blue screens at first but mostly software related,I agree it got better as it went along, but many still wouldn't upgrade from XP.As far as a joke, I was refering to windows Millenium.
Yes, it got me too, sorry Daveski17. I have to suppose that computerizing joke automaticly translate to millenium in my fuzzy mind. I never tried Vista, actually! And I loved to work on XP, but I now consider 7x64 as a good leap forward...
Yes, I have heard that ME had more than a few colourful pseudonyms. I never used it, which is probably a good thing.
Yeah, my desktop has Win 7 64 bit. I must admit that I am impressed by it. Like I said, I never used ME. I've heard it called quite a few rude names though.
Windows XP was truely an awesome OS once they ironed the bugs out of it.
However now we have Windows 7 and having used it extensively i could never go back to XP now.
Each successive OS becomes larger and requires more memory to run.
My XP PRO installation was about 7GB. Currently running Windows 7 64bit with an installation over 30GB.
I think it's called the bloatification syndrome LOL.
Well that is generally true but there are exceptions like Vista <-> 7 (the latter requiring less resources).
That said, just because an OS requires more resources to run doesn't make it slower. Quite the contrary in this case actually. Windows 7 is the most efficient Microsoft OS to date. It is better than XP in every way (not counting user interface, as it is a subjective matter). From a technical standpoint Windows 7 is the best Windows at the moment, hands down. On older systems Windows XP is the way to go but if the computer is decent enough, then Windows 7 will actually be faster in daily usage.
Thanks. Actually, I like Windows 7. I have an older machine (4 years old) and was given Windows 7 as a gift. Originally, I had 2 GB of memory and upgraded to 4GB. I made the decision to use the 64 bit version so all 4 GB could be used.
