I have a free computer that is a single core, with 1.5gb of ram...I'm alive. I put a 'borrowed' copy of win7 on it and it runs just fine.

I'd understand people sticking with XP when MS was trying to push for Vista but Win7's is superior in every way

I have a better than average "higher end" computer system from about 4 years ago.
Not that great any more obviously, but still good enough to run many current games on high settings.
Although I don't even game that much any more anyway, so it's not a big deal.

I only have 2gb of RAM, so there isn't much sense for me to upgrade to an OS that takes more resources.
I'm not sure what more could I do better with the newer OS,
considering I already know how to troubleshoot or perform daily maintenance on my system so it doesn't run into "unstable issues".

I plan to get a new computer maybe within a year or so, and until then,
I'll have a reason to upgrade to 7, just because I might as well,
but there's no reason for me to upgrade right now, especially with an older system.

^my computer was pretty high end 3-4 years ago too.
i got windows 7 when it came out and never looked back.

no offense but a lot of you sound like old conservative people who are stuck on their ways and refuse to accept new things.
windows 7 even runs well on older systems thats one of the great things about it.

Or we don't want to spend the money to upgrade for little benefit. I've never had an instance on my laptop where I thought "Shit! I really wish I had Windows 7 on here so I could do "x" thing"

if you build your own computer like some of the people on this forum - you can keep the license for future computers. If you end up building another computer in a years time, just transfer the license to the new computer.

AND - if you know someone who's a student, the licenses are dirt cheap. Even cheaper if you know someone who works at MS.

I can see not upgrading to win8 from XP as it's a lot different. But not upgrading to win7 is ridiculous. Windows 7 is pretty much XP but better.

I'll prob be on win7 for a while.

ram is so fucking cheap nowadays... I don't see a reason why ppl are using less than 4GB... and don't give me the crap that XP have x64 version. everyone know the x64 XP has hardly any support in hardware

IIRC... XP doesn't even have TRIM support for SSD.

Windows 7 is the first OS I've paid for since I bought my first PC with Windows 95 on it. It was worth it IMO, I had been using a pirated XP for so long.

I doubt I'd upgrade to 8 anytime in the near future.

haha support for XP died a little while back..

this just looks like windows 7 with a touch shell over top of it..

as for Windows 8.. I think I'll wait a little bit..
i've tried the developers version.. but it doesn't do it justice unless you have a touch screen..


still love my linux..

Don't get why people are complaining about windows 8 looking like windows 7. The focus of windows 8 is to support arm procs. Once it works with arm processors, it should work with most of the tablets we have today. The metro UI is a great supplement to the regular windows7 UI, remote desktop on a win 7 comp with a tablet sucks. Lets just hope MS isn't a dick and make it into the next windows CE.

windows 8 looks like 2 different operating systems crammed into 1 for no reason at all....

heck even the browser in Metro is unrelated to the browser on the normal desktop.... so bookmarks/cookies/history is separate

ill just wait for windows 9 or Windows 8.1 /.5
