XP is nice for an old computer, but using 7 and gaming hasn't been slow for me, so I'm pretty happy with it
shiny true so true.

you need to keep up with the times and this is win7 time.

You can use a magnifying glass with dx 9 and 10 screenshots next to each other and you won't find a difference. So people might say dx 10 on xp is not really dx 10 its just a hack. But in fact its just some clever people who finished something ms Shouldve done by adding those simple features to xp. In fact xp still have hardware acceleration and no hacks needed for the sound like vista/7. Xp was a good os it will still be on my boot list but 7 will be no 1 on it. Xp is just a bit more prone to crashing than 7 and more sensitive when drivers don't like each other or software don't like certain other ones.
Vista is another lovely os. Out of the box its junk. Throw it in the grinder with vlite and rip the bloated junk out and it runs like a dream. Every ms os runs wonderful if you stripe it down by removing all the unneeded junk. Make your own Windows lite for free.
I looked into this awhile ago and I understand that the project to get DX10 onto XP was abandoned.

Think I even tried it and it was a big fail.

If you look at XP in it's early days and it was not much till Sp2 so give win7 some time. It might be worthwhile noting that it's essentially rejigged Server 2008 R2.

You might also check out the free Classic Shell project I mentioned earlier.

I <3 Win7! XP just seems old and clunky now....
post #130 of 133
i like xp, but the gui is too outdated, i like the gui and speed of win7

but i really hate win7 taking 900mb of ram, give my ram back,

i also hete win7 last a lot more to boot, while xp was almost instant (i am talking when the desktop shows up)

but the gui and effects, and overall speed is nice in win7
