Default Re: So Many XP Users Still

I upgraded to Windows Vista x64 1 1/2 years ago and all i got was problems even with SP1 installed. First it was random app crashes and slow downs, the hard drive continually chugged away and on the odd occasion when shutting down the OS it would sit there with the HD going crazy for around 5mins before it shut itself off. All the problems frustrated the sh*t out of me that in the end i gave up and went back to Windows XP. With Windows XP I had no issues and loved it, I did miss Direct X 10 a little but not enough to warrant sticking with Vista.
Now my Vista disk sits in a cupboard collecting dust, every time I look at it i am sick because I know i wasted all that money for nothing lol

When Windows 7 was released I reluctantly purchased and installed it on my PC and I am happy to report that it is working great on my PC with no issues. Its fast, i am able to game in DX10 and the new task bar is great.

After my nightmares with Vista I will never use it on a PC I own again!
