What operating system do you use? Well I've used XP home and Pro for a long time and some people would swear this is the best, lately I changed to Windows 7 and found it a little bit better, what about you? What do you think?

hi, I am still continuing with my windows XP Pro. I have not yet changed to Windows 7. I had a look of Windows 7 at my cousin's place. I found it good but still I am so used to XP, so it should take some time for me to change form XP to Windows 7. Recently I heard a news about XP. From 2014 Microsoft will no more support XP that means no updates. I thought 2014 is a long way to go, in the mean time I think we all will shift Windows 7. Happy browsing Calpro

hi,I hope you can get an upgrade soon, having a system that is no longer supported can be risky. Yes money is the problem and your idea of getting one that you can register is a good one, yes buy only original, guess that's how good old Bill and his Microsoft boys conduct their business

Windows XP is outdated, and support will stop for it. The only choice in my opinion is to upgrade. I use a mac myself, but also have a Windows 7 laptop that I use occasionally. Windows Vista was the loosing system, and 7 is what Vista should have been. I find 7 to be quick, responsive, and just as good if not better than XP.

Yes I agree with everything you said, guess the only down side of an upgrade would be sytems requirements like a bigger memory ... etc . Yes Vista was the worst , never thought I could get the hang out of the XP experience, but once you try and learn Windows 7 , you would love it as well

I did use Windows Xp Professional, Windows 7 and Windows Vista Ultimate. I have used the home edition of Windows Xp and Vista and did not like them because some of the features were disabled in those OS. I am presently using Windows 7 and Windows Xp and both are cool and have their own plus points. On my Laptop using Windows Vista Ultimate. Vista is slow compared to these two in my view. I cannot remove Vista because company has given it with the Laptop.

I would recommend you to use Windows XP rather than to use Windows 7 because of many security reasons. Windows XP is user friendly OS which has almost most common security control as built in Windows 7. Also i would recommend you to use Windows XP for the below stated reason. 1) Security- Windows XP has a high level of protection from defective software and malicious attacks. 2) Reliability- Windows XP is the most reliable and stable OS. 3) Compatibility- Windows XP has introduced a new compatibility layer that falls between application and the Win.32 APIs. 4) Performance- Windows XP has a very high performance on desktop systems, which are largely constrained by I/O performance, Server systems (where CPU is often the bottleneck), and large multi threaded and multi processor environments (where locking and cache line management are key to scalability). 5) Extensibility- Windows XP has the capacity to keep up with advances in computing technologies. 6) Portability- Windows XP has the capability to be moved from one hardware architecture to another with relatively small changes. 7) International support- Windows XP is designed for international and multinational use. It provides us support for different locales via the national language support (NLS) API. Hope it will helps. Bye and have a good day!!

Hi louievill, I personally use XP at home because i've never wanted to get a new OS. ever since people said vista is very bad, i've always relied on XP. I mean XP is so stable and reliable and it has been a classic over the years. I fear that i might be a little outdated without windows 7, but it's okay. I love the classic touch of XP. I always used that since i was a child and probably will always use that forever :D. But my little bro recently got a new laptop with windows 7 on it and i think windows 7 is kinds good, But i'm sticking with XP for now :)

Well, Windows 7 is good because it is a fusion of Windows XP and Windows Vista. It got its speed and efficiency from Windows XP and the beautiful design from Vista.

Many of them says Windows 7 is good. I couldn't agree more.
