hmmm, so when we buy 7 we get xp also, and if we already have xp what should we do with a extra cd key? sell it?
if you sell it, you'll be selling your ability to upgrade back to Windows 7, so no I wouldn't do that.
Maintain corporate images, maybe. Possibly buying PCs every two years as part of the corporate upgrade plan, and you only buy 1/2 at a time. This way you can buy 1/2 now (on schedule) and then buy the other half and move all to Windows 7 in another 2 years.
Umm why not run Virtual XP that comes with every version of Windows 7?
NOT not with every win7 version. Only with profesinal and ultimate
oh ok thanks, my bad.
i hear that virtual xp cant run games or other graphically intense programs. not sure if thats true though.
lol, you really think this is the place to ask ? funny
call up the manufacture during the week
is it a PS/2 mouse?
If It Has Warrenty I Recomend You Return It And Not Mess With It Or Warrenty Will Be Void
In company, you need to be on the same plateform, also if your computer is too slow for it.
could always just stay with xp if windows 7 turns out to be hot air
Microsoft dont sell Xp anymore, if you dont have enought Liscence Key, you can get this, ask for 200-300 downgrade key and then you also have Seven if you want to upgrade 🙂
linus please…. stop wearing your mothers earings on the air
they're mine 😉

Can you help me out? I got an .ISO, and put it on a 4.7 GB cd, and when I put it in it loads the whole CD, then it gets to "Opening windows" or something at the enhd were the menu is about to open up, and I get the BSOD (Blue screen of death), and was forced to restart my computer.
I have a 1 TeraBite hard drive, with 500 Free space.
Omg thanks so much =D iloveyou =D
@REPOMAN24722 Why would you want to downgrade to Windows Vista from Windows 7 when Windows Vista is the mother of all hell? Windows 7 and Vista is based on the same kernel, but because Vista got such a bad publicity Microsoft decided to rename their Windows Vista Service Pack update to just "Windows 7" while retaining everything that makes up for Vista, plus adding more "features/GUI's" that's why future DirectX updates are backwards compatible with Vista. Downgrading to XP makes more sense.
Ever since the problems with Windows Vista and how Microsoft changed Vista's name to Windows 7 later on to dump the name of Vista due to bad publicity, I have decided to keep on using Windows XP, while I dual boot to Linux too (Ubuntu . com) as my current phase plan since for me, Linux sounds like a better upgrade, on Linux you can forget about viruses, trojans, etc since its open source, any vulnerabilities founds are patched real quick by the Open Source Developing Community worldwide.
@REPOMAN24722 I too have a dx 10.1 video card and 8 GB of RAM, that didn't stop me from downgrading to Windows XP 32 bit. Here's what will happen: You will have Dx 9.1 working, I heard about the DX 10 hack for Windows XP but have never tried it. Yes, you will have about 3.75GB of RAM available, but in my case, I took off 4 GB of RAM from my motherboard and placed it in storage in case if I need to replace on of the other 4 GB of RAM I am using if they become faulty in the future. All works.
@REPOMAN24722 part 2/2: Also, because you have one of those "Dx10.1 video cards" Windows XP will accept it even better, because that card has other features that will be more welcoming to your Windows XP computing experience, such as a much faster GPU, better anti aliasing, faster PCI-Express speeds (maybe up to 16x) now you will be able to play those games at a higher resulution without stutteting, something that was barely possible with a 4 year old video card. You might want to dualboot Linux
Are you gay? :O

XP is very light, compared to Vista/7.
