I use XP and it would take a lot to get me to switch to a newer operating
system. Upgrading is supposed to be painless but inevitably there will be a
problem recognizing some hardware, and new drivers are often required for
stuff you've been using for years. Sometimes drivers for old hardware just
are not available for newer operating systems and some software isn't
W7 or Vista-- no thanks.

I have yet to try Windows 7, but prolly will soon. All day, every day I use
three computers at work. One XP, one Vista and one Mac. I can find faults
with each, but for overall stability and ease of use, the Mac is pretty darn
good. The XP machine is also very stable and I often don't reboot it for
weeks or months. Vista locks up once a day, every day. From what I've seen
of 7, it looks more Mac-like, but the migration path from XP is non-existent
and if it is as stable as Vista, I'll probably pass. Most reports, though
give it pretty good marks.
