Even Linux still interests me more than XP, & I'm not as savvy with Ubuntu as I am XP. I mean...Damn...There's been 2 versions of DirectX since XP. I thought that'd be what got computer IT's into converting. Seriously XP & 7 are so different in the right ways that I'm shocked there's still people around who prefer XP. I've been doing Microsoft E-Learning, & considering the stability, & gratification from my W7 installation (plus my clients experience) I've still learned quite a bit of handy odds & ends bits of information. My only complaint is that a small population of mostly retail computer I've seen that even hardware a few years old even have no drivers except Windows XP. So I guess ya could say some companys need to get workin' on their drivers, or actually make them if possible. Although...I've got to give a hand down for winning OS for it's ability to run so stable, especially on older systems with alright specs, but lacking some of todays more regular features like a Dell Latitude D600; I know the CPU, & RAM on it could run it alone, but I was told from a member here on OCN that the graphics card ran on the Radeon 9000 "Legacy" drivers. I tried the full CCC, & also the WDDM driver; both of them said there was no compatible hardware. I checked the graphics card in the control panel, & also Ccleaner, & it said it was a Mobility RADEON 9000. But that was on XP, & a install that I just did not like...I've noticed from some of my W7 clientele that since upgrading to W7 they've gotten less viruses after time. I give everyone the same security I have: Ccleaner, Spybot, & Housecall. Simple enough for the average user also
Windows 7 is life, just gotta be smarter than the operating system.
