Is anyone still running XP or Vista?

If so, why haven't you upgraded to 7 or 8? Are you happy with XP or Vista?

My mom's school district still runs on xp. It hurts when she brings her laptop home and asks me for help with something.

My studio xps 17 is still running vista. I have it to my dad and he LOVES it. (No he doesnt. He complains about it all the time.) But it does everything he ever needs. Web and videos.

I still have active comps with XL and Vista but 7 is my main now.

Tried 8, it's garbage .

It's not as if Win7 is so much better either, not worth to upgrade to it unless it's for very cheap or for free.

And Windows 8 is just a mess

He doesnt complain about the OS, hell, they run almost the same to begin with. He just has to complain about something so he can use my back up cp.

I still have XP on my IBM ThinkPad. The thing's almost 10 years old and it still works just fine. I'm kind of sad that Microsoft will stop supporting XP next year. Although I suppose that you have to move on eventually.

The computer I was using most of the time up until a month ago couldn't run anything past XP.
