First of all Mr Moderator, apologies for (probably) putting this in the wrong forum. If there is a general comment forum, as opposed to asking general questions, I missed it. Please move me to the correct place. Thank you
My point - at last! - is that no-one I have spoken to likes Windows 7 and was much happier with Windows XP. I'm one of them. One of the people I spoke to didn't realise that XP was about to "die" (become unsupported).
Seven seems to be for people who want to get things done without too much thinking or expertise. Which is an insult from Microsoft for the more abler (and I'm not boasting) users who want to make top-notch DVDs and website and more . . .
So, here's a plea to whoever is left at Microsoft (the former top man had gone, I read): restore XP to the marketplace as Windows 9 (or 10 if version nine is too far underway). Yes, I would be happy to pay for it all over again just to be able to use it.
I seem to spend twice as much time trying to get Windows 7 to do what I want it to do as I actually do working on something.
The Library system is totally baffling to me. I once had something in SIX locations and deleted five as a waste of computer space and memory! I lost a DVD I was well into completing. I was left with just blank squares, some with question marks, where pictures used to be. No amount of trying to restore the files from the recycling bin brought them back.
Never had that problem with Windows XP.
Please Microsoft, give the more serious users a chance!
