Migrating to Windows 7 from Windows XP in Windows 7 Posted October 14, 2009 For the likes of me, I cannot figure out what all the hoopla is about with windows7. I was one of Microsoft's beta testers for windows7 and was not impressed with it. In fact, I found lots of problems with it and the operating system reminded me constantly that it was Vista with a new name and a new face. I'll stay with XP. It has no problems to speak of and is secure. I read yesterday that Microsoft released 10 major updates for Windows7 due to some major flaws that caused it to crash. Imagine that... Furthermore, why would I want to change from a dependable operating system to one that won't be around for more than a couple of years. Vista lasted maybe 2 years and Windows7 will last about 2 years and then Microsoft will decide it needs some more money so it will create another operating system by 2014 which is the final year of Windows XP support. I've already advised my clients not to upgrade to windows7 let alone Vista. I've advised them to stay with XP since they're not having problems of any kind.
