    Hi, I seem to be getting updates to my version of Vista nearly every day the latest one today is nearly 20MB, if they carry on like this I have a feeling it will be the same as Windows 7 in a few months so why change

    Wndows 7 is a dressed down version of vista,basic Vista was a basic a Buisness designed OS,,if you notice it takes around 750mb ram to run Vista where as XP needed a min of 256mb,basic they cut a lot of the crap out of Vista and launched it as Windows 7,its a shame they didnt listen to a lot of people ,XP was so user friendly,you needed to find anything couple of clicks your there Vista was a minefield to find anything,hence i stick with XP


    and i agree were stuck with Vista on laptop,would have to replace HD just to go back to XP ,and all we have had over past few weeks is updates ,so i shut it off so no updates :Rofl1:

    Thank your lucky stars Jim - means you won't be tempted to "upgrade" and make a mess of your machine :BigGrin:

    Apart from patches/service packs I've never felt tempted to change the OS which came with a machine since the days of Win 3.1 - and that was only to take advantage of networking in 3.11 :Smile:.

    And how many updates has it taken to make Windows xp and even vista stable after how many years?

    Yes there are many similarities between Vista and windows 7

    7 uses memory and processor more intelligently and is the obvious progression to vista.

    PS I've just finished upgrading a "raw" xp sp2 image on my wife's new laptop and it's taken some 3 hours with the service packs.

    I still stick with the opinion, after running 7 for a couple of months or more, that it is a far more solid O/S.
