Windows 7: Retiring Windows 7 Anyone Else?

I find Windows 7 much easier to use than XP, and much more costumizable too than XP was. It's also more responsive.

I believe that it's probably the person's computer, and the upgrade costs to both the computer and OS that is the problem here as some people install it on computers that are too weak for 7 and then whine that it's less responsive and slower than XP. No wonder when the computer was made for XP.

Please allow me to confirm your statement that I did not start the thread.

As was made quite clear in my post:

'This thread was started by a person who did not agree with a point of view that winows 7 is so good, and was interested if any one else felt the same. Like myself he was probably interested to find out if it was just his experience or if others felt the same.'

I would also like to point out that your offer to "come over and insult me personally" is not helpfull and it does not actually have any relation to the thread.

XP still necessary for me

I'm a freelance writer, and there are two programs which I use (or try to) every single day: OpenOffice Writer and Quicken 2010.
My new computer runs Win7 64 bit, my old and trusty computer runs XP.
On the Win7 machine, all fonts are a bit "fuzzy."
On the XP machine, all fonts are clean and crisp.
Which machine do you think I use as my "workhorse?"
After a half hour with the Win7 computer I get headaches, and so I go back to my five-year old computer.
Now how did I know I'd just wasted a big chunk of money on the new Win7 computer? Uhh. . . . .
Maybe everybody will figger out the problem someday.

Try adjusting the cleartype text...
Start - Control Panel - Fonts - Adjust clearType text

Or maybe it's the screen resolution?

Win7 "should" be clearer!

The new computer's screen res is set to 1360 x 768 - and it don't get much bettah dan dat nohow.

Adjusted ALL - many times

I've adjusted it all until I'm literally red in the face - blood pressure, doncha know? But seriously - I've tried everything that I - and a friend who works for Microsoft - can adjust/tweak/ etc.
Me thinks that Win7 is just too advanced for OpenOffice and Quicken?
Anyway - thank the gods of ether that I've still got the XP machine!
