Is anyone here still on Windows XP? If so, why?

1) Older PC games. You know, the ones that were actually good.
2) Better customization, being able to write your own scripts and embed them on the context menus for instance.
3) Many programming, hacking and gaming tools only work on WinXP or earlier.
4) Faster and more productive GUI. Smaller number of clicks required, Up button etc.

This coming from someone who has free access to Microsoft's OSs.

The bane of WinXP is that there's no decent x64 version of it. It's why I'm running Win7 on one of my laptops.


Also winxp has less latency issues than 7. Mainly to do with Aero. I read it in the bsnes forum

I use xp on the 5 year old netbook. Runs fine.

Most of the time, compatibility modes just don't cut it, so I play some older games on my other PC with XP. Now I'm looking to get Windows 98 and DOS machines as well. I think I might start collecting the big box games.

there are apparently fixes available but none i cba to look into just because some people(according to the answer given) are too damn stupid not to f*** up a completely fine feature.

also, i boot into W7 for DX10+ gaming so no loss there either.

PC hardware doesn't need to match console hardware in price when PC gamers save literal thousands from the software they buy. http://www.steamgamesales.com/
