Still happy with XP and don't have to update (yet) all my other software.

Re: free Windows® 8 For Dummie

I fought for a very long time not to upgrade from Windows 98. I had seen the later versions, and I did not like it, having got used to 98. Eventually I succumbed and bought XP Professional. I am quite happy with this, and I think I will be for some time to come.

Why are these upgrades released? Does Windows 8 look different, or do anything different? I understand about touch screens, but I certainly would not like to sit at my computer leaning over the keyboard to get to the screen to touch it every time I wanted to do anything. The mouse works perfectly well.

Having said that, I kicked against the use of a mouse for a long time, preferring to use the keyboard. But like a lot of things, eventually we get sucked in by the advertising blurb and get sort of blackmailed into changing what we have. I think I only changed my system when I found out that support was going to be ceased. Not that I had used them much - but it is comforting to know they are there if you need them. Stopping support is like kicking the stool out from under you - you don't fall immediately, but very soon after! So I changed my system. I wonder how long XP will have support?

Re: free Windows® 8 For Dummie

Microsoft employ close on 100,000 people who have developed a just about perfect product – so where do they go from there? Put in pretty pictures, loads of special features that nobody really wants, and make it incompatible with the other software that we already have. They’ve just got to keep going to survive.

It’s a total rip-off.

What’s the answer - wish I b** had one.

(Maybe we should just buy Microsoft, fire everybody and employ half a dozen guys to support XP)

PS I understand that XP support was due to finish about now but that they have extended for another 18 months or so due to public protest. It also seems that Windows 7 is about to be replaced by Windows 8 but our geeky TLF friends could tell you more about that.

Re: free Windows® 8 For Dummie

Oh well. My XP has never given me any trouble whatsoever. So I am going to assume that it won't in the future. The minor problems that do occur are generally nothing to do with the operating programme - just me doing something silly. Although non-responsive programmes that lock everything up do get me rather annoyed. Whether this is the system or the programme (or me) I don't know. It is just a bloody nuisance having to close down and re-boot. That in itself is not a problem I suppose, but I resent the time it takes!

So will continue with fingers crossed for the time being.

Maisie

Re: free Windows® 8 For Dummie

The reason I had windows 7 put on, was I was also told support was finishing soon
XP is a better system , from what I've seen of win 8, it's crap
google are just the same Dracey , they are withdrawing Igoogle next november "because it doesn't fit into modern life styles" ..??????????????????
Brain dead the pair of them and facebook too, just people trying to generate crap to keep them in jobs
