And when you need an OS really bad,

by CharlieSpencer In reply to could have been SP3

MS has a really bad OS.

Man, I've been bashing them a lot lately. What's up with that? I've been running Vista Home at the house, and both 32-bit and 64-bit W7 at work without a hint of dissatisfaction, and I like the changes in Outlook and OneNote 10. Maybe I'm just in a snotty / snarky / snarty mood lately.

XP SP3 remains the primary OS at work. Dropping support might drive us to upgrade, but I doubt it. How many problems are going to crop up after ten years? What's more likely to push us are new hardware and software that requires W7.
