See the heading... this is the Windows XP forum... and NO
... I won't be "upgrading" to Windows 8, let alone not biting for Windows Vista or Windows 7.
Because my current Core-2-Duo 8400 3GHz machine, with 3GB RAM and Windows XP SP3 does everything I want to do, does it well, and so far without fail in nearly FOUR YEARS. I use Lightroom, Photoshop, WordPerfect suite, and a hundred other programs with 3 TB of hard drives holding tens of thousands of files.
When and if something blows up and I need a new machine, then MAYBE Windows 8... but not until.
I also drive a 20-year-old Mazda pickup.
Because it runs like a clock, has NEVER failed me, and costs next to nothing to keep on the road. Besides, I haven't made a car payment in nearly two decades.
Again, when and if this vehicle's parts fall out on the highway and leaves it beyond repair, THEN and only then will I be looking for newer wheels... but not until.
All you characters who jump on the hyped-up "latest and greatest" products (which are RARELY genuine improvements) simply have more money to burn (and time to waste fooling with them) than I do. I cannot believe you actually NEED any of this stuff... you just WANT it so you can "keep up with the Joneses."
