I'm still running Windows XP Pro on both my desktop and laptop.

I bought a new desktop last fall with Windows 7, and found out some of my client's software isn't compatible with 7. I went back to my old one with XP Pro. Till I figure out what to do with it, the new one on Windows 7 is basically a $600 paperweight.

I went to a three day seminar earlier this week, and we were asked to bring our laptops, if we had one. I have a little 13" to carry around when I'm on the road. One fellow had a new laptop running on Window 8, and he was so lost in the woods he just gave up and looked at his neighbor's.

My wife's computer has Windows 7, and she gets along great with it. But--she isn't involved in all the business functions I am.

One thing I can say for sure, avoid Windows 8 like the plague.

Hello Goose,
Had been running XP PRO 2 weeks after it came out.
That was a very good system. I thought it was time to change, so I got Windows7. It is running pretty well so far. Just a couple of glitches , but very stable,I don't think its a paper weight. Window8 is not an option for me, that was the reason of my post. Guido.

One company I work for has a building diagramming program. You can diagram a building OK on Windows 7, it just won't let you label the individual areas of the building. Works fine on XP and XP Pro. The techies are stumped.

Then, too, on downloading, editing, and resizing photos, it seems everything that takes one step on XP takes two or three steps on Windows 7. It seemed like when I tried to run 7, I wound up spending a LOT more time on the computer. And since I get paid by the job and not by the hour, I went back to XP just to get my work done efficiently again.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Just recently (about 10 days ago) I bought a factory reconditioned, Dell Latitude E6400 laptop. It came with Windows Vista Business and office starter. 2.56 ghz, 4 GB ram, and 150 GB hard drive. The only way I could find anything that did NOT have windows 7 or 8 was to go with a used computer. I am very happy with it. It performs just like a new one.
