Why would you have to move up to windows 8? I know people that still use XP.
when i got my system last year they didn’t offer windows xp which is what I was use to and would have loved to have,
I told myself no way in H3ll was gonna get a vista.. so i ended up with a windows 7 which to me is nothing more than a glorified windows vista. windows 7 is way different than xp the file system is screwy, you can’t clean the registry, it has a ever growing winsxs file that can’t been clean or rerouted.
The Pagefile fetch directory using 10% of your memory unless you. either disable it or move it to another drive.
Same with the hibernate file. took me 2 months to finely get it so i liked it.. and forget using windows restore it will eat up your primary ssd drive if you use it.
only one word of advice i can give with window 7 if you get with a SSD drive for the operating system make sure its a big one, because the registry and winsxs folders grow in size with every windows update. and you can only clean it once after you updated to sp1. I thought for sure a 65 gig ssd drive would be big enough just for my operating system .. boy was I wrong . SSD drive are not cheap
I was going to uninstall win7 and buy a new copy of XP 64.
But unfortunately Microsoft will eventually stop supporting XP in another year or so like they did win98 in 2003 so that is why i didn’t bother.
I like Linux, I But not many software companies offer support for it because it is open source. Does daz even support Linex?
you hardly even see it listed in the requirements in the software specs.
