I remember back in junior high. The kids made fun of Windows XP, saying the names stood for "eXPeriment" and chuckled along. Then there was Vista and the "The WOW starts now!" campaign which bit MS in the behind when it was "WOW, this isn't very good at all". However, 7 is a substantial upgrade over XP and if you get a new machine, I think 7 is an OS you should really consider.
