    possibly i find myself getting lazy these days...... the reason i dislike Ubuntu is after you install it you have to spend hours removing excess crap you'll never need nor use. Thats why i do a Debian base install with no GUI then install exactly what i need/want. Youll notice the system runs eleventy billion times better


    and yeah im an oldschool redhat fan.... i should check it out again i havent played with redhat since RH 3.0 im sure alots changed in the last 6 or 7 releases since then.

    XP is the best OS Microsoft has released. Win 7 is just a Vista make over. It suffers from bloat. It is also difficult to manage in a corporate environment unless you completely chug the MS Kool-Aid and have everything in your data center an MS product. Try running 1000 PC's on Win 7 with a Linux data center and corporate Gmail.

    For a home user, XP is especially good now that MS FINALLY released security software - MS Security Essentials.

    I will agree that XP definitely has it's perks. I will be sad to see it go. I do love my 7 Ultimate though.

    You can stay on it....But no security updates will kill it quickly.

    vista wasn't so much of a mistake the problems came from when people tried to run it using the minimum PC requirements. if you had a decent computer with decent ram vista ran just as good as windows 7.

    this was Microsoft's faults for listing lower specs then what it really took to run the OS.

    vista had compatibility issues like crazy... win 7 seems to have corrected that. they're similar, yet night and day at the same time.

    vista's issue was not just sys requirements.... at least not from the experience I had with the computers I troubleshot that were running it.

    I cannot stand Windows or IE. Whenever I design a webpage, it alwsys looks frakked up in IE. They are always lagging behind other browsers. I use a Mac and Safari.
