Windows 7: Most XP users hate Windows 7!!!

I remember reading that article when it was about XP itself.

It was about how Win2k users would hate/hated XP because of all the frou frou. I actually know some people that to this day still use classic mode on XP!

At some point people just get "stuck" in time and that's it for them and technology. It'll likely happen to every one of us at some point as well. But things gotta move forward. I sure wouldn't want to be still using Dos 3.0 and playing games on my 4 color 320x240 CGA card :P

All I have to say is I dled Windows Seven on a whim
1. Because I wanted to see how it was different from Vista which I completely skipped over
2. Because it was free and I also wanted to use up more of my 8 gigs of ram.
And now couldn't have been happier. I still have a XP hard drive I occasionally go to to use certain apps and to keep updates up to date and all i can say is it looks so antiquated it's not even funny.
So I say let those nonconformists hang on to XP, they have no idea what they are missing.
Oh by the way 2 really nice cars Greg!

You think that's bad, there are lots of people (maybe even a few here) that still use classic mode on Windows 7! (No offense to those people BTW, but seriously...)

It is pretty incredible that the same people who flamed XP for years are now clinging to it with a death-grip. Same as the (rare) people who use iOS 2.x, the PlayStation 1, VHS, and dial-up Internet. I even heard a story about someone that hated CDs. To him, it wasn't music without the popping/crackling/static of a record. That's perhaps the best explanation of the mentality.

Anyway, it should be noted that most of us probably know someone (I know at least one) that was a die-hard XP user, right up until the day Windows 7 came out. Then they got a new computer for one reason or another, and fell in love.

I was stuck to XP-PRO big time. Then one day after a little research, what the heck give it a try. With a little time learning all the goodies about Window 7 it was obvious to me that W7 is the best operating system out there so far. Some people don't want to give themselves and W7 at little time to know each other.

Their problem, the simply don't accept change, even if it's for the better.

To them; "Ignorance is bliss".

in all fairness to change, some people are not passionate and interested in the workings of their computer, they simply want it to work. So, when they switch to something new and cannot find it, or struggle to make it work like they are used to...it's just that...a struggle. Some people simply have no interest or desire to evaluate whether a new method of doing something is better...they just want to stick to what they know. Eventually though, the technology does change and they are either left behind or they adapt. They can keep using their XP machines as long as they can, and when they die, they are likely going to be forced into this new OS. And I'm sure given time, they will figure out what they "need" to figure out. The rest will just be lost on them.

That is a shame, they're missing out on technological progression.

Oh yeah, they don't understand what makes it "tick" or even have a thought about what their system is.
