Hi guys,
I am using windows xp sp3 professional, and i'm completely satisfied.
However one of my friends just upgraded to windows 7 ultimate, and
he says it's super fast on his machine while xp was slow to respond
(PS: he does not take care of his pc, e.g instead of uninstalling
he just deletes the software folder...)
So here's the question: should i format and install windows 7
or should i stick with xp?????

theres no right or wrong answer there, its whatever you personally prefer.

currently i am using windows xp sp3 and for what i do on a daily basis, theres no need to upgrade to windows 7 yet.
Get on your friends computer and play around with it and see if you like the new os

I don't believe you can upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate. I believe it has to be a fresh install.


If you are happy with XP, leave it. Especially if you have an older computer. (like 5 years or so)

Make sure your system meets the system requirements
In the beginning there was the command line.
