Yep, we'll basically post anything that interests the male 18-34 (which really seems to be 14-40) demographic, with our primary focus on PS3 while including articles like this in the mix. Personally I am bored to death of "PSN down" and "PSN compromised" articles so I try to keep them to a minimum... most likely next week will come a slew more when it goes back online with a new PS3 Firmware update.
A curious part is "offtopic" articles like this generate 3+ pages of replies while actual PS3 homebrew articles often get only a handful... which makes me wonder if many here like myself enjoy reading about the updates but are too busy/can't be assed to try each out to comment on.
Well the old cliche - each to their own. Yeah if you're not driven by the looks or the outer layer of 7, and are not one for change, then I'm not surprised you want to stick. As for 'simpler OS', true, 7 does have a lot more option paths and can be a bit of a forest. For me, the looks and feature set / options just make it my favourite.
If you're able to get SSD functionality on XP, then yeah a small one would be good. No more defrag. Almost instant load of programs. I will say though SSD performance on XP might just be a fraction degraded with the older XP chipset drivers, but might not either.
Perhaps I am just stubborn and too fond of my XP system. I dunno, I just generally dislike how Win7 is setup, to me it's very much like vista, and for my needs I have never found anything, aside from the UI appearance, that I would want that XP doesn't give me. I personally prefer a simpler OS, and while I may have a old PC and an old OS, I bet my comp is just as fast as a higher end Win7 machine (my comp was originally designed for Vista --resource hog as well-- but I quickly got rid of that and installed XP with dual boot).
And you now have peaked my curiosity about an SSD drive, I may consider getting a lower GB one just to run my OS on, I will do more research. From a quick search it does seem XP can run an SSD with a few tweaks.
Agreed. Windows 7 has both the stability and class that all others lacked combined. It may use a touch more resources, but this is before you tweak the services, ie Windows Search, Superfetch. So many say Windows 7 is just for newbs or something, but there's many of us experienced users that find it better. And SSD is pretty awesome. I have 2 128gb SSD's running now, 1 for the OS and 1 for games and it's just so sweet not having to wait for stuff to load. Even if you don't game, the difference is very distinctive.
