Merry Christmas eve eve, everybody! Is it worth me "upgrading" to Windows 7? My aging desktop PC is currently running XP. I use it for mostly gaming, DAW's, music and movies etc. It's not connected to the internet and has no Antivirus (my choice). I don't like clutter so I use my laptop to virus check my new goodies (music, games etc) and then move them to the desktop PC. Everything seems to need higher spec machines nowadays (obviously) so I'm considering building a decent PC. I understand I need Windows 7 to make use of high-spec stuff. Thing is, I hate Windows 7. To me, it seems like a watered-down mess. I'm not interested in Tweeting or apps or iAnything. I just want to make the most of my new hardware and that's it. And I bet all my old games won't work on 7. XP service pack 4 would be great, but that's not gonna happen. I don't want to upgrade my whole PC just so 7 can do the same thing as XP, but use more resources. Am I screwed? My current spec is: Intel Pentium Dual core 3.4ghz 4GB DDR2 RAM Nvidia 9600gt 512mb Hitachi 1TB sata hard drive. I can't remember the motherboard... Cheers guys, have a good Christmas!
