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

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
in 2020 who knows WHAT types of OS'es will be available. That's 9 years away -- and even 5 years in computing technology both hardware and software is equivalent to a Geological age.

Looking say at Windows 95 or 98 -- both OK for their time would be in Computing terms going back to the Jurassic era (perhaps that's where the expression "Dynosaur Technology" came from).

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit, Windows Developer Preview, Linux Mint 9 Gnome 32 Bit

Windows 7 is the BEST operating system I have ever used. Its also the BEST of all OSs by Micro$oft. Period.

If they want to stick with XP, that is fine but I am really upset about them making rants about Windows 7. Sure, its not perfect but its way better than Windows XP. If you learn how to tweak it and make use of its superior functions than XP, you'll love it way better. With modern hardware and software being made and developed, they have less to complain about.

Its their problem that Microsoft are slowly killing Windows XP. I guess they were right that technology doesn't stand still and neither could them.

Windows7 Pro 64bit SP-1; Windows XP Pro 32bit

I like my XP.

Kinda like an old pair of comfortable shoes.
They aren't worn out but getting scuffed and the heel is a bit thin.

I love my Win7 after just a few weeks of use but I can't throw out those old shoes quite yet.
Besides my old games play nicely on XP.

Sure, Microsoft isn't going to spend time going after the individual pirates...but be clear that they care about piracy at the individual level as well. If they didn't, we would have things like activation and windows genuine advantage checks and the like. Without a doubt, Microsoft expects that you will go into a retail chain and purchase a retail copy of their software for your machine. Heck...they have even publically changed the EULA and made a stink about end-users/hobbyists using the OEM licence for personal computers and are trying to curb that behavior somewhat.

I got out my Vista x86 laptop last night for a routine programs update and after using my Win 7 x64 desktop for just 2 months Vista now seems like a relic of the past! I'm glad that I used Vista for over 2 years though because Windows 6.0 prepared me well for what I would have do deal with in Windows 6.1.
