I used to love windows xp and when windows visita came along, I wasn't too excited about it, because I loved my windows xp. But, eventually I had to replace my computer and it had windows visita, it was ok I guess, I got used to it after awhile, but it had a lot crashes. Well this year I upgraded to windows 7 and at first I didn't really see to much difference but after having it for awhile I have gotten used to it and it is pretty good. As for the windows 8, don't like it, I was given a chance to pre view and I think it is alot like vista, don't really like the layout of it. My favorite windows I have to say was windows xp, and windows 7 comes into second place. If they would have an updated windows xp , I think I would go back to it. Which is your favorite and why? ANy recommendations on which you think is better?
