Do you prefer XP, Vista, or Win7?

Postby THCAndy » 04 Feb 2011, 23:11

There are a lot of Vista haters, a lot of people who still use XP, and a lot with Win7 as well.
Which do you prefer and why?

I like XP the best, mainly because I never upgraded to Vista due to all of the known issues, and I never got around to getting Win7. Overall Win7 may be the best Windows OS however, because I don't hear much wrong with it.

my main system is a mac, but my daughter has a vista and my wife has xp on her laptop. I have to say that xp seems a lot easier to use and less annoying.

I like Windows 7 the best. That's a no-brainer.

Vista is better than people think it is. Besides being a little clunky, it is still the basis for 7, and everybody loves 7!
XP, at this point, is being phased out and doesn't support some newer software. It can't do DirectX 10 and 11, which are essential for the latest games. Also, Vista and 7 look cooler and have many additional features, along with easier networking.

My order of OS prefernece:
1. Win7
2.Vista
3. XP
4. Mac OS X
5. Win2K

thank you for not hating vista :)

vista is a decent operating system that is leaps and bounds more advanced than the archaic old XP. It's a little annoying and buggy, but if you disable UAC and update it often it's good.

I like them all, but I would have to say Vista or Win7.

I have Vista on my laptop but my sister's has Win7, there are a few slight differences. Nice updating. I would like to upgrade to win7 sometime, but this laptop's been pretty good to me :D

To be completely honest though, I base my opinion of Vista on my experience with one computer. My friend had a Vista that he was kind of locked out of (long story) and I played with it for like a year before we finally just put XP on it xD
That is, aside from the ones we've had in the shop, but all I've done on those were installed drivers and freeware... (and the OS itself)

I prefer Windows 7 because of the nice User Interface. But I am currently running on a Vista Home Premium 32-bit. My vista used to give me a lot of problems but now not that many.

Now that I've been able to update Windows 7 I have found that installing updates on Windows 7 takes too long. Other than that I absolutely love it.

XP is outdated and Vista is just a resource hog. I haven't had many problems with windows 7, so w7 gets my vote.
