The crap Microsoft came up with is like rearranging the controls and pedals in your car for the new models, but it can be fixed.

Looks like Vista all over again. 7 was perfect. Not sure why they decided to put that awesome idea in a blender with Windows 95 and a tablet OS but hey, it's Microsoft.

I found a way to tame it, too. I call my fix "Windows 7".

I reluctantly upgraded to 7 on my desktop machine, after buying a new laptop for the kids and seeing that 7 isn't so bad.

After two weeks of tweaking, I finally have 7 behaving and configured like XP. Gee, that was fun. Maybe I just should've just upgraded to XP 64-bit.

Windows 8? Hell, no.

I've been on W7 for about 6 months. I like it. Before that I was on XP for 2 years. Before that I was on 2000.

I stuck with 2000 until Autocad and some other software makers stopped supporting it. I will stay with W7 as long as I can or at least until 9 has been out a few years. Every other one is crap.

Are you serious? If you seriously considered putting the abortion known as XP64 on anything then you are a sadist of the worst order.

XP was fine in its day, but it was not the be all end all of desktop OSes. The only reason most people were so crazy about it was the fact that they were coming from the Windows 9x platform, those of us who had already been using the NT platform for a long time liked XP but didn't see it as being revolutionary, and not even that huge of an upgrade from 2000.

I'd been using XP since ~2003. I recently built a new machine, and I figured I might as well try to take advantage of some of its capabilities. I realized I was behind the times when I had to make a Vista boot CD to properly format my SSD, before I loaded it with XP. I like XP - it's stable, and does/did everything I needed it to. I knew Vista was a bomb, so I was similarly skeptical about 7. After playing with the kids' laptop, I came to realize it wasn't so bad, so I took the plunge. But I did it by adding a new drive for 7, and kept my XP hard drive, just in case. I figured XP64 would run a little faster on the new machine if I wasn't going to upgrade to 7. Relatively happy with 7 - stable, no crashes. My only real complaint is the winsxs folder, which is now up to 9GB.
