I had win xp for years and I loved it. Win 7 came with a new Dell I bought. I can't put xp on it.I download a lot and I uninstall a lot and windows won't let me uninstall anything! It crashes all the time. Xp would crash once in a while. I prefer easy and XP is easy. I never felt this way moving from Win ME to win XP! I absolutely hate win 7. Oh yes another gripe, I have folders on my desktop. Games, other games and utilities. Win 7 loves to move them around in places I deplore. It would rather put the files on top of each other and that confuses me. I put my folder under a heading and expect them to stay put but nooooooooooo. 7 has to move everything. I'm a smalltime gamer. Mouse games. Thumbs down for win 7!
