I've been trying to tell myself to move to Vista, and also that I should wait for W-7. But my five machines running XP Pro just do not break. I've played with the W-7 Beta, and I have a copy of Vista Ultimate on a spare hard drive for my main computer. I've played with both of them, and in a way they're nice. But, damn-it, I just don't see any benefit to me.

If it works -- don't change it.

How else do you learn, if not changing things that otherwise work? Seeing other people do things or reading a book only gets you so far.

On your main computer you leave it so it works.

On your testing computer you do whatever on it.

Just make sure your primary computer works haha

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
