I like my XP and have no intentions of dumping it. I have alot of treasured old Vintage After Dark screensavers and other programs that while uncompatible with XP- I can still install on XP because of XP's compatibility wizard. I tried to install them on my father's Windows 7 PC
but they didnt install properly-
For me it's not just a matter of affordablity and being thrifty- not to keep changing over to something new unless really necessary, but
it's also a matter of really being comfortable with my XP and all the treasured programs that I can still run on it, that are not
compatible on Windows 7, etc.
My father has Windows 7, and I do also appreciate Windows 7 as well-- it really has some beautiful touches to it, but I am happy
with my XP as well- and even own a licensed copy of Windows XP to re-install in case it ever crashes. When I get the urge, I borrow my
father's Windows 7 when he's not around- but at least I still have XP on my PC so I can also enjoy my older programs on it that won't work
on Windows 7.
I'm not the sort of gal that has to keep junking a good electronic just because something newer came along. My saying is "Make new Friends, but
Keep the Old- one is Silver but the other is Gold
