    I only use XP as a backup Operating System to Windows 7. When a program won't run with 7, or 7 just takes a shit on me, XP is there as a backup to fix 7
    windows XP mode, its in win 7 pro

    I'm still using Win XP because I don't think my computer can handle Win 7 and I just can't afford a new OS. I'm saving up for a new computer though and maybe I'll get Win 7 with it!

    I can prove in cold hard benchmarks that some video games and some general applications run faster (and I suppose subsequently, better,) in XP branches than Vista/7 branches. This bandwagon @#!*% for Vista/7 needs to stop. Vista and 7 use different technologies than XP, which, depending on what you're running, actually make XP-generation OSs far more reliable.

    OP is most likely running various applications that run better off in XP.
    The bandwagon? They are the newer versions of the software.
    Also, sorry for the censored stuff in the quote, the place I'm at has goddamn insane internet filtering.

    I like XP, I like the way it feels when I use it, but Windows 7 is just better. My computer came pre-installed with Windows 7, and at first I thought I wouldn't like it at all. But then I realized that it's so much better than Windows XP.

    I use XP on my netbook. Perfect for web browsing and running a few old games like Half Life: Oppossing Force.

    but on a desktop? 7 all the way.

    Most netbooks I've seen were too underpowered to even run Windows 7 Starter properly.

    I'm stuck on this shitty computer with Windows XP for a week. I never realized how much better 7 was than XP. The file explorer is the main reason that I hate it, because I'm trying to get SimCity 4 on here with an assload of mods, but it's so difficult because the file navigation is terrible.

    My gaming pc is stuffed and I've been using my backup that can NOT run Windows 7. It's that bad, I tried installing a fresh copy of Win 7 and the PC just shits itself.

    Windows XP is so god damn old and ugly.

    I got a netbook free due to disability. It was pretty slow, but there were two reasons for that. Firstly, the crap software that always comes with any laptop and it also only had 1GB of RAM which is more suitable for XP but struggles a bit with 7. When I got rid of the crap software and upgraded the RAM to 2GB, Windows 7 starter runs pretty well on the netbook.

    Um, netbooks usually have a shitty processor (atom or fusion) that hardly ever make it over 1.5GHz without paying out the ass for it. They are not designed to even run vista or 7 at all and to get the best out of them is to use linux. Upping the ram would only delay the memory swapping it has to do to run.

    Greetings!

    I'm using this old computer of mine which still runs windows XP ( sp3 ).
    I've been having some problems lately involving ntdll.dll and my dumbass replacement of core dll files. If one of you could be so kind to host your own version of ntdll.dll for me, I'd be very pleased.

    Thank you.

    ( yes, feel free to rate me boxes. )
