    I imagine so, I mean it won't get anymore security updates but will still operate.

    So what do you do with your older computers that are not powerfull enough to run vista or XP just throw them away, There are still millions of users running XP and will do for years just because MS stops supporting it don't mean stop using it.

    I guess never:D

    I love Windows Vista More than Windows 7 because of lower requirements and faster responses

    I meant it.

    And which functions/parts of 7 are slower than their vista borthers? Did you actually test windows 7? Usually every new MS OS is a bit slower than it's predecessor, but with 7 this is definitely not the case

    There is a little performance gain in Windows Vista since it is already evolved over the period and tested in higher number of systems compared to Windows 7.

    BTW I see only parrots saying Windows 7 is faster than Vista.

    I even told my friend to install Vista Ultimate over his 7 Ultimate and believe me he loves it more than Windows 7 which he was using for 6-7 months. He instantly found the difference of speed and response in that OS.

    He used to Keep his system for downloads from 8PM to 1PM. And even today he is sticking to Windows Vista over Windows 7.

    The only drawback is it uses by default more memory than 7 but has an advantage over it for Quicker responses to open,Close clicks etc.

    I would recommend you guys who use Windows 7 to give Windows Vista SP2 a try and tweak to give it an even better response than I have achieved. But in the end it is for you to decide to do that or not.

    Peace..
