why? I don't see the point in me signing up for dozens of different sites & forums to discuss things that are offtopic but of interest. Did anyone make you read the thread? True it's in the console news section instead of the old PC news section, which incase you haven't noticed, is gone.
Believe it or not quite a few members of the forum use PC's and a few of those might, just might, use windows OS's so it'll probably be of interest to these very few members.
no there is a 64bit version of XP it's just terrible and generally unsupported. As for a SSD I'd seriously reconsider using one, not as a replacement for old HDDs but as a supplement just grab a cheap small one and use it as a drive for your windows install, everything will be much much faster, quieter and draw less power. Not to mention even forensic departments can't recover deleted data from them if you're the more security conscious.
But the point is saying Windows 7 is worse than XP because it uses more resources is nonsense. It uses more resources because it's a much more complicated OS with vastly improved support. Windows 7 is evolutionary more than revolutionary obviously hardware designed for XP is going to run it poorly and hardware designed for windows 7 is going to run XP faster, it's a 10 year old OS, same as it'll run win95 at lightning speeds.
That doesn't change the fact that right now Windows 7 is a much better supported OS with more features.
Though back on topic and from what I've seen from Windows 8 I wouldn't be suprised if the name changed before release as it looks more like it's designed to work in tandem with Win7 on tablets rather than replacing it on desktops. I might try get my hands on the build and give it a shot first though, it really depends on how invasive the touchscreen optimisations are on a desktop optimised version
If you have a Win Xp 64bit version you can do everything a Win7 can do just thought i put that out there seeing as i am running WinXp 64bit myself, But don't get me wrong Win7 is a nice OS and 100 times better then Vista.
I just hope they don't go messing it up with Windows 8.
