I actually prefer Windows 7...
In fact, we're already at the point where Windows XP is becoming the source of some problems. When the official SDK for Portal 2 came out, there was an issue that only XP users faced, that caused it to not open and function properly. Not saying anything against Windows XP. Windows XP is historically one of the best versions of Windows to date, if not the best up until Windows 7 and even then, that's not saying much about Windows 7. It's newer so it's a little better and though XP is/was one hell of an operating system, it's time to move on.

I said the same thing about Ubuntu switching from Gnome to Unity. Then i got used to it. Same with switching from XP to 7. Just had to get used to it, and now i actually wouldn't be able to go back to XP.

The one thing i have a REAL problem with is 32 and 64 bit operating system compatibility issues. It's getting better, but things that are 32 bit used to just break on 64 bit systems, and vice versa 64 bit software wouldnt work AT ALL on 32, for obvious reasons. I'm not sure this will ever really be solved until the majority of computer users are on a 64 bit platform.

This windows 8 crap sounds awful. It looks like it is too much aimed for touch, with classic desktop tacked on, "oh yeah we got that too for older software". I understand tablets and touch are becoming more mainstream, but developing a major pc operating system around the concept? we'll see about that.

New does not necessarlily equal better. Why does everyone assume such a trend?

I prefer Gnome over Unity to be honest, i just find the loss of the top bar when running applications annoying. Similar thing to win XP too, I prefer a conventional program list of some description over docks et al.

People still claim windows get blue screens of death? I haven't seen a blue screen of death in 10 years, maybe I'm doing something right? For a while there, I thought circy removed the blue screen of death, so I was happy, but now MasterM is getting them all of them on his own! this is so unfair, circy, why are you doing this??

That's true but in this case, Windows 7 is newer and it is better so theres no reason not to upgrade if you can afford it.

Actually there is one little reason, it's called "personal preference"

Of course, until system compatibility starts dropping Windows XP off the radar. At one point, Windows 98 and Windows 2000 were always tacked onto the box of virtually any piece of software. Quickly though, Windows XP became the lowest supported OS. Even quicker than that, not even base Windows XP was good enough, you needed an upgraded version of Windows XP, Service pack 1, then 2, then 3. When we have software that not only requires SP3 but other software that already starts showing signs of glitching on Windows XP due to compatibility - we're fast approaching a time where your personal preference is going to start feeling like a heavy weight and before long, a burden that you'll start thinking twice about wanting to carry around.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for personal preference at times where it makes sense, and right now it does still make sense that some people still prefer Windows XP over Windows 7. However I'd say it's more to your benefit to learn to like Windows 7 before you're ultimately forced into it.

I have had no problems on XP to date, things just work - all the problems I have are on Vista and 7 . I am a pretty proficient PC user - writing software, tools (mostly in C), 3D rendering, HD video editing, engineering design, and of course using klik tools

All I want MS to do is to offer an OPTION for me to set the start menu to a classic style - without having to resort to shell modification tools. Is that too much too ask? Sure have the default as the new funky style, but the classic style should be an option IMO. At least with Ubuntu I have the option of running Gnome on boot...

What next MS, will my Windows 7 get bricked (next update) with my shell mods (ala Apple iOS style) ?

Here is a possible OS for you Sketchy. It's even more shiney

Does dragging stuff off the dock still make things get deleted?

Hand's up if you have developed: PCIe instrumentation cards and software and drivers? 480 Megabit USB 2 peripherals and software (through libusb)? Remote controlled (via TCP) lighting units (hardware and software)? The list goes on... I would say I am quite proficient at PC software and hardware development , and although I think Win 7 is a good OS I like choice.

At the end of the day everyone has there own likes and dislikes dude.
