The problem most people I know has with ME was drivers.

The big 2 reasons why I went from Vistas to Win7 were: 1) external drive issues, 2) support for newer hardware [driver] and software. It also helped going from 32-bit Vista to 64-bit Win7.

I still have an XP laptop, but there are more and more hardware and software that wants at least Vista to run, or does not run well on XP.

The only reason to upgrade to Win8, to me, is the advanced touch options, as long as you have a touch display though. My only touch display is on my Android tablet and that will be the case for the foreseeable future.

understood why people always dogged on it so much. It worked great for me.

Vista, on the other hand, needed to be scraped from my boot from the
moment I had a computer running it. I was more than happy to upgrade to
Win 7 (although, to be honest, I still think XP was the best version of
Windows ever produced and I still run it on my computers when I have the
option). I've only had the smallest amount of time on Windows 8, but it
seems apallingly bad and I have no plans to EVER put it on any of my
