I upgraded to Vista in 2012. XP had problems but after service pack 2 upgrade it was ok. Vista is basically the same, just new name without the errors XP had in the beginning.
It is pathetic that Microsoft are forcing People (Consumers) to upgrade and spend money.
I ran multiple monitors from my Windows 2000 laptop, so I don't see what Windows 8 has to do with that. The last touch screen tablet I used was made by Lenovo and had a proprietary operating system. But the one application I see people mention Windows 8 for is touch screens; aside from that, I see a lot of comments that people don't like Windows 8 as well as Windows 7.
Windows XP users really should just upgrade, these mid-range windows 8 touch screen laptops are great. Quad-core, multiple monitors.
Some people will take a while to re-engineer their thinking of what a computer was and what they are now..
Business users require simple products, which work all day every day, never kick up a stink, and are easily modified.
XP allowed for all those things, and windows 8 allows for none of that.
Now i know why on the 8th of april i got a small pop up on my monitor stating no more microsoft support etc. Yes im still using WIn XP service pack 3 & im sad to hear this news. I had intentions of sticking with win xp till 2020 if i could, now i dont think so.
Imo it's the best Op software ive ever used, and i still have win 98 & win me also have win 2000 lol. I thought win me was good back once, then came win xp.
Bye Win XP
