Naaa People will just stop buying windows and start buying Macs smile

Uh… NEVER!  I’m not a MAC fan in the least!  Don’t argue, just accept that there are those that don’t do animation nor like MACS!  wink

Definitely NOT! I’ve been a computer technician (that’s what we called ourselves before they coined the term IT professional) since the early 80’s I’ve dealt with Macs since they first came out, and I HATE them. They are over priced and over rated. Believe it or not they use many of the same off-the-shelf parts as many other computers. (i.e. Drives, memory, etc.) but buying them through Apple to get the Apple Certified replacement, will cost you 3 times as much. I won’t even get into their proprietary bios, OS, and software. I’m not a big Linux fan either, as major software vendors don’t support it, so if I have to run a Windows emulator to get the software I need, I might as well suffer Windows itself.

Yes. I’m one of them.
Upgrading to new operating systems should be taken with great care.
If you’re getting the performance you want with your current system (ie your software works, etc) you might be wise to hold off.


I don’t get a new operating system until I get a new machine, and that’s only because it comes with the machine.

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.

I didn’t know all that about Windows 7.
Do you think Windows 8 will be better or do you just think it can’t be worse than what you already have?

Not that it is on topic, bit Windows 8 is worse than Vista on the desktop. If you have a tablet, it will be better.

I finely got to like windows 7 now.after moving the file system around and installing a drive for my back up. I tried windows 8 beta on my old system.
It has a Metro Interface which runs like a App on a cell phone or tablet ..  Microsoft will be releasing windows 8 on a tablet the same time they release windows 8 for PC in Nov this year.
I think some people that are use to using tablets and Androids will love windows 8 but if your like me and liked windows xp you will hate windows 8

But you know how people hate change myself included.
