Windows 7 is worth the jump from Vista. Actually don't even think about it just do it.

Not as nice as WinXP, but you'll get the hang of it eventually. A lot of the "safety" pop ups are whats going to drive you mad, but its part of the times.

The best OS in my opinion Microsoft has made including server lines.

Windows 2000 Desktop,
Windows 2000 Server,
Windows XP Pro
Windows 2003 Server

I do not want it. I have XP and Microsoft Office 2007 and that was a learning curve. I was much happier with Microsoft Office 2003. All the best...

I'll stick to Vista...I know that many said that it was a problem...but so far I have not had anything that comes close to a problem.

Well .... I replaced Vista with Windows 7 in my Laptop about 6 months ago, and I love it!!! It works great!! But then again it's a legit copy ...................... Smile With Vista I could not seem to get my home network to work properly and with Windows 7 it was simple. I can now print (wireless) from my laptop to the printer connected to my Desktop Computer that has windows XP, with no problems. I can move files back and forth between computers etc. with no problems. It just damn well all around works better then Vista!!! Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy IMHO!

I have Windows XP and it works fine but slow so I also installed in a partition UBUNTU which is a linux system that is always fast and always no problems. Just can't put some of the Windows or dos programs on it otherwise I'd only use it. I have to have Win. to cover some of the applications I have, but mainly I use UBUNTU.

Have you tried WINE? Many Windows Programs work under wine.

I thought that was "Small talk OVER wine".

WINE = Wine Is Not a Emulator.

It converts the function calls of Windows programs into Linux ones. It does not actually emulate the Windows environment, it simply passes parameters.

Dimitri have some wine!!
WINE= Windows Compatibility Layer (so there)
Well it works with some programs but not all. I put the Point Blank program in Windows just because I didn't know if it would run in UBUNTU. I haven't taken the time to try the programs I need but I know it works with some word processors/text editors. Wine is a work in progress. Many applications still need Windows components to run and all in all it's very complicated (at least for me) to use it. The way I'm set up I can either boot Windows or UBUNTU on the one computer and actually I rarely use Windows so this is ok by me.

Suzanne,

You should have tried Wine when it first came out. Using it nowadays seems like a breeze with all the help available on the internet now. Laughing
