The bump I felt in the transition was actually less than from 98 to XP.
Have you lived though such a change before?
And I've seen such complaints even when an owner get a new machine with the same OS!
-> "without going out there to try and find updates"
This is what many want today. They want "it" to just work. The industry has yet to deliver.
having been baught a new comp for xmas with win7 installed, i have read various writings on its performance, i agree with most on this that over xp it is good, but, when wanting my older programs on the system,it's a nightmare, the compatability program is completely useless here and i feel like returning to xp, or alternatively put xp as a second OS just to run my previous games and programs. but what is the point of improving an OS if you still can't get your previous programs to work properly or at all without going out there to try and find updates all the time! any other ideas out there???
