XP was great as was NT but we had to move from NT to get to XP. I have Windows 7 on a new Lenovo laptop but this post is being typed on XP.

It's an evolution of sorts. We have to go with the flow. Eventually, this XP box will have to be retired but I'll go with the flow.

xp x64 vs win6 x64? win7 hands down.

xp or vista or win7?

wasn't impressed with vista and win7 is just vista on steroids. Heck of a time with game compatiblity in win7 so for me that is major points negative.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

XP can still be considered faster by many means and for many uses.

XP has some ways to speed it up a lot for gamer and to slim it down.

Most users would be best served by using Window 7.

For older hardware, especially anything before Core2, anything with less than 2GB RAM, or if you want to run really old software, you are best staying with XP 32bit
For new modern hardware, Windows 7 has features and stability you will want. For systems with 4GB RAM or more, especially with a fast CPU and really up to date hardware, go with Windows 7 64bit for two reasons. First, it supports more memory, supports the next generations of CPU's, and will support the newest software in the next few years better.
Edit: Apparently can't count, that's 3, sorry.

good,

the win7 is a featured for higher machine (more clock core, more more...) ok on this.

on a modest machine (1,6MHz/512MB/4200RPM-75GByte/USB2.0/Net~200KBPS/Lan100MBPS) i sow that xp is better then win7(32). but i have to ask if some have other viewpoint.

so, we have the same opinion. xp is better.

Even today most applications make little use of either gpu or more than 2 cores. A 6x or i7 with 12 ht would be of little use to most people.

Your applications and use would dictate what is best by testing.

Windows 7 is not really "better" for newer hardware but it may support or not support your hardware.

My opinion is that a common user with xp installed may wish to stay with xp. A user that bought a computer with windows 7 installed may wish to stay. Only advanced users with full knowledge of their system and it's desired use could determine which is best.

If you have an old machine, stay with XP.
If you have one of the newer XP machines and want Windows 7, run upgrade adviser to see if it will run well.
If you are purchasing a new machine and plan on using it for a few years or more, go with Windows 7 and if you can, stay away from the cheapest systems out there. Your usage will determined if a mid range or higher is best for you.
