I compared the performance of Windows 7 with that of Windows Vista , a lot of readers expressed interest in seeing a comparison with the decade-old, but still popular, Windows XP. So I decided to see how each of the three operating systems compared to each other in several crucial categories.




Thanks

well windows xp is a great OS windows vista is a terrible OS I think that vista is like the old windows me in that it was a OS to basically test because they were working towards windows 7 like windows me was a work between when they were going towards windows xp.
like I mentioned earlier if xp is doing fine then stay with xp, windows 7 is a great OS but if you want to use windows 7 you might want to turn off allot of features but by turning those features off then your OS is going to look lot like xp.

Isn't Windows 7, 'Vista revised' or Vista 'Service Pack X?'

Windows 7 is basically Vista with a slightly different UI. If you like Windows 7 then you like Vista as well, no matter how much you try to deny it. The only truly meaningful technical difference between the two is that 7 allows you to run multiple different display drivers simultaneously.

Most of everything mentioned here makes perfect sense. I would consider a better cpu or gpu over a new OS as you'll gain much more imho.

keep your OS unless you REALLY want some feature of Windows 7
upgrading CPU, GPU can make a nice improvement
