Why are people still using vista? WHY??


Believe it or not but a Laptop I bought not that long ago and was fairly decent was not totally Win7 compatible, it did eventually work but only a after a load of searching for drivers! This was a Dell laptop so cynical as I am, suspect they wanted you to buy a new laptop for Windows7!!

I run Win7 Pro on 8 year old Inspiron 8200, P4, 2Ghz. All I did was upgrade the memory to 2GB, even though it's only suposed to handle 1GB. Perfectly good performance in normal usage.

Had to do a fair bit of hunting around for a driver for the card reader, seriously poor show from Dell. This was no slouch either Dual Core, raid etc. Mind you its like going back in time with this old desktop of mine right now smile Used to be fast in its day, its sitting here creaking as I type!

I've had this current laptop since August 2007 and it came with Vista Home Premium pre-installed. Since then I have installed all of the most recent service packs and things have worked fine. As others have said, if it works OK for what you need it for, and you cannot justify the money for Windows 7 just for a marginal improvement in performance, then just leave it.

I have nothing against Windows 7, and have used it happily on other computers, but I'll happily wait until I replace this laptop before I get Windows 7.

It's for laziness and cost reasons I think smile

Yeah. I've got Vista on my laptop too. it works fine; why pay to upgrade it. Now, if it was XP that would be another matter.
