Well according to many of the pundits Windows 7 - however, if XP is working fine on your home PC and you don't 'care' for the added security and 'cooler' look of Windows 7 then there's really no need to upgrade!
Thanks..I want to buy a laptop which comes with a preloaded windows 7.However I am comfortable with the Xp in my desktop.I was wondering whether I should insist on xp or buy with windows 7.
I don't think you'll be able to get a new PC with XP soon.....Windows 7 isn't that different from XP - I believe you can set it in 'classic' mode which even looks like XP anyway.
If you're using XP and you're thinking about upgrading, my advice would be "Don't bother." If your current computer is working fine, then don't fix what ain't broken!
Eventually you will have to buy a new computer, and it will have Windows 7, and there ya go. Until then, don't shell out the cash just to upgrade your OS.
I am using window xp never use Windows 7, but i think its better to use now Windows 7. If u r satisfied then use it else remove and make ur pc load free.
I just bought a laptop with windows 7 on it and I love it. It is fast and secure. My old comp has Vista home premium on it and that was pretty good too, but I do like my 7 better.
Thanks RedSonja..this is what I wanted to hear!Yes,I will go in for windows 7 for my new laptop.Thanks.
You like Vista RS?
You are the only person that I've seen Compliment that program.
If you post a copy of your endorsement to Microsoft.. They'll potentially offer you an executive position
you can change a settings of vista then the speed is recover for any os like windows 7 but u can love it windows7 then tri to your choice ok.
Smart repartee there. I've suffered through vista and it took microsoft months to come up with fixes.
I am running XP / Vista and 7 (on 2 desktops and 1 laptop) and can you guess which O/S crashes/hangs the most?
Yes, Windows Vista! I am very surprised with Windows 7 in terms of it's ability to become a worthy sucessor to Windows XP. It has a different feel to it but after a few weeks using it, you will wish that you had the same freedom with XP as you enjoy with 7.
Another plus is that Windows 7 also has native XP application support which should help minimise the cost of software upgrades.
I am envious of MAC users though because I bought an iMac back in 2005 and I have never updated the O/S or any software on it and yet if I switch it on today there won't be any problems when I try to connect to the net or do anything else on it. It doesn't even have anti-virus software yet runs like a dream.. I just could never get used to the single button mouse!
I'm running XP on 2 and Vista business on one PC No problems at all on either (knock on wood)! No need to upgrade yet, let them get the bugs out, although I hear Windows 7 is running great so far, good reviews.
To put it simply, I believe Windows 7 is a much faster, more user-friendly, more visualistic, operating system than Windows XP. Why would Windows make something worse for their next generaton of operating systems? I do, however, believe that Vista was a step down from XP, but Windows 7 will make up for that.
Windows 7 is just Vista with slutty red high heels on. The main benefit I see to XP over 7 is that many security holes have been patched with XP by now. I haven't had trouble with Vista on some varied clone equipment, so I'm not sure why folks have so many issues with it. The beta of 7 I played with gave me no grief on my old clones either. One issue with 7 is loop rebooting during the upgrade which Microsoft doesn't know how to deal with yet, so my productions PCs will wait on it. An independent tech forum poster or two has found that 7 reboot probs seem to have to do with manufacturers loading the same image for AMD processors and Intel processors, a common shortcut by lazy IT folks. The AMD processors hang in a loop because they want their OWN image, and why shouldn't they get it? LOL I'm a pro geek...Microsoft has keep me in jobs for years. I'll bite on 7 with caution. It has some great features XP does not.
anytime XP!!!! it is one of the most stable versions of windows..but if u are a user who wants to have a cool interface,extra security resources then go 4 windows 7...
I've got XP, and I haven't had any real problems. I've never used Windows 7 though
Undoubtedly Windows & is better, it is the best product according to me in OS so far Microsoft has produced:
You can get more information through my hub:
Windows 7 is best OS.For more information about windows 7 see here - http://windows7.iyogi.net/
Currently using both.
Windows 7 ticks all the boxes. I am yet to find a software / hardware that dont work with Windows 7, so it's looking good so far.
Although never had any issues with XP.
definitly xp ...the best window the microsoft have developed till date...i love working on it and right dont need any chage...
xp all the way...although I've not used win 7 since they fixed all the bugs...
Love it or hate it, you are going to upgrade to Windows 7 soon. 3rd party softwares will stop developing for XP in year or two so you'll upgrade sooner or later. (This happened before with 98 or XP, now again with XP or 7).

Which Windows do you think is the best? and the worst?I recently wrote a hub about the reputation that Windows Vista has gained, but now with the release of Windows 8, I have to ask... which Windows do you think is the all-time best? and which is the all-time worst?
by davidwillium 7 years ago
actually, there is really no "THE BEST" os in the market.. It's all about user preference.. but I can give you the most preferred OS'es by the masses..- Windows (7, xp) - these are preferred by people because of its "user friendliness" and a lot of softwares are compatible with...

Which is better XP or windows7?
by Michael Willis 8 years ago
I thought I was buying the whole Windows 7 from Dell when I wanted to upgrade from Vista. I now find out that this is just an "Upgrade" which means that Vista is still on my hard drive, just with Windows 7 running. I have to keep Vista for 7 to work. Dell tells me that Vista is still...

I know Windows 7 has not yet been released, but I received a Signature Edition of it today and am nervous about installing it. Not because it isn't legit - it came from Miscrosoft - but because it's new and I have no idea what to expect.Any techies (I'm NOT one) out there have any knowledge...

Is it worth upgrading to Windows 10? 7 is offering a free upgrade. What are the pros/cons?I'm not sure I want to take advantage of the offer. Has anyone tried Windows 10 yet? If so, what are your thoughts? I'm comfortable with Windows 7. Does the latest version provide a better user experience?...
