Windows 7 isn't exactly difficult to steal, but I'll say no more on that before I start violating rules
Anyway, my $0.02:
Personally, I think most XP users really don't "love or hate" Windows 7. Im sure there are plenty of XP "Fanbois" (hell we get alot of them on here) but I think most people probably don't care one way or the other. If it works, and runs their programs/hardware etc. then I doubt most people who aren't "in the know" would care whether its XP, Vista, 7 or even Windows 98!
We of course, are in a unique position, most of us are
enthusiasts, and have followed Windows 7 on its long winding journey to being (in my humble opinion) the best Windows, hell the best (again, IMO) OS out there!
