  1. I would install Windows 7, but be aware that it will run a little slower than Windows XP. Not as slow as Vista, but slower than XP, and it will require more memory. It really is time to get a newer PC.

    i have 2gb ram , i thought windows 8 is faster than windows 7 and better in many ways , whats your final verdict

    i've run both, and I'm running 8 now. I'm not sure 8 is faster, except that it boots faster. The only way I will use 8 is with either ClassicShell or Start8. I don't use it on a tablet or with a touch screen, so without Start8 it is a non-starter for me. Since Windows 7 is Windows v6.1 and Windows 8 is Windows v6.2, there isn't a heck of a lot of difference, except I love the Windows 8 Task Manager and I think the file copies are better, but other than that I don't see a lot of difference. Go with 8 if you want, I don't think it will make any greater demands on your ancient hardware than 7 will.
