Is Windows Xp Still The Shizz Or Not?


manuleka

well i've seen alot of threads about windows 7 and linux, but i'm just curious if there are still any xp users around? if any if not many? i am still pondering on the old xp, it's quite sufficient for my daily use - warcraft, movies, surfing, music etc... anyone else here on xp still?i have played around with windows 7 and i think for me xp is still the shizzy wizzy

I don't mind Windows XP, but I prefer Windows 7 because of its newer features in Windows Explorer as well as keyboard shortcuts like WindowsKey+Left. I also like that I can use Internet Explorer 9 in Windows 7, even though I use Chrome and Firefox as my defaults. As for Linux, I occassionally use Ubuntu, but I tend to use the Ubuntu in my Virtual Machine (running on my host of Windows 7) when I need to do some programming in C.Windows XP is fine for daily use, just make sure you aren't using Internet Explorer 6

lol... yes i use chrome as well, but my default browser is Opera... i'ved been with Opera since early days when they use to have forced ads on it (unless purchased)...

All my systems purchased with Windows XP are still working like a charm. So I am satisfied with that and I will continue until big hardware failure.I will probably have to switch to Windows7 when I will buy my next PC, but till now I stick to XP as long as I can.

Well, as I said in another topic, at home I am using Windows 7, as my computer is not so old, has lots of memory and can easily work with Windows 7, even though when I bought it, it came with Vista, I removed it and installed XP, but I couldn't get all the features of it, as drivers weren't as good as for Vista, but I was quite patient and soon Windows 7 appeared, as I am a student, I got myself a copy of Windows 7 Pro for students in the MSDN program and samsung released drivers and everything, it works like a charm, much better than XPBut for older computers, which were designed to run XP, I think they should run XP, as I can't find anything bad about XP, I am using it at work and have no problems, even though the computer is new at my workplace.. just as it was said, you need to NOT USE IE6 ;)Whoever wants to use IE9, need to use Windows 7, but on XP IE8 is quite satisfying , so... just use Opera or Chrome :lol:Besides, I think XP has better performance and other stuff for some not new games which requires DirectX9, if there is no problems with drivers, when it's a good OS.
