Well you'd have to define 'better' first. If you define 'better' as being fast no amount of tweaking is going to let 7 run as fast as xp.

But if you define 'better' as Zidane does, better being overall better then ofcourse xp can't beat 7.

7 has way more capabilities and a [S]crappier[/S] complicated gui so Zidane is right as well.

As i said earlier: reality is in the eye of the beholder

This whole thread is ridiculous. If I was running LCARS from Star Trek in the 24th century, some would probably say that Windows 7 was better.

Some just have to stick to archaic software with archaic reasoning. There's no reasoning with them, they'll pick one subject, better performance on old outdated hardware and fight to the death that it's better just because of that.

IMO, overall, in every category that matters, not only perfomance, Win 7 is better than XP.

If you want to stick with an ugly, more insecure, less user friendly OS, because it's runs better on your old crappy hardware, go right ahead.

LCARS is so '90s.



My limited defense of XP notwithstanding, I use Windows 7 for a reason. And when EdgeStream updates their client (or ABS-CBN standardizes their codecs), I will have only two reasons to maintain XP on two different platforms.

One because it works on my old crappy hardware as a single purpose machine, the other because it generates support-based revenue (on modern not crappy hardware).

The thread is ridiculous.

Initially i've created this thread to see what others would try with a pc like mine!

If people don't like it moderators can delete it!
