Thanks Forseti. I have both XP Pro and MSOffice 2003 on disc bought and paid for so I am teetering on the edge when it comes to changing. Thankfully I can still use Office 2003 with W7. I agree about the commercial users of XP. I would hardly think a company would be in the throws of changing their OS at this present economic downturn. Apart from the cost of changing the soft and hardware, they would experience all the other teething problems that come with change and that might put them on the spot financially.
My current PC is six years old now and showing signs of wear. Bits are falling off the case and the CPU struggles sometimes. That can be a bit frustrating, especially when we all rely on these things for our photography habit. I would rather change whilst it is working than wait till it collapses on me. At least it will be a straightforward changeover.
Thanks again OldBoy. That's interesting. W9 will probably be the all singing all dancing OS by then knowing Bill Gates. The one thing that concerns me more than anything is not getting security patches after that date, as we do all our banking on-line these days like a lot of people I suppose. Mind you, I guess they would have found most of the holes in the XP OS by then.
