Windows 7 (pro 64bit) vs Windows XP (pro 32bit) = Am I Whining?

Ok, I am whining for I still long for XP and wish our government simply buys XP and give it for all commoners on earth for free and let them use it forever or whatever.

Till last week I used Windows XP pro32bit.
Now I am using Windows 7 pro64bit. (I was never interested in Vista)

I simply had to upgrade my OS because I felt that the time has come such as, no support for XP, people leaving XP, 64bit movement, etc....

But what do one really benefit out of Win7? why is it better? more convenient? better technology? looks fancy? all BS.

Currently I am using my Win7 in a 'Classic mode' for I do not need anything Windows 7 gives.
Such as.....
1. I do not need nor care Aero, peek, shake, etc, it's for kids
2. I don't care Snap, only lazy people will use it forever
3. I do not need Windows Search, for i know how I keep my stuffs and the old search was good enough
4. I do not need big taskbar, that's space wasting, I know how to focus on my stuffs
5. Library is a ok idea but I don't need it for I have a way of my own (separating hdd for OS & Data), it's for brain deads
6. I don't need themes, i don't care fancy, do you want to show off your pretty desktop to people ?
7. I don't need gadgets, I have all handy stuffs linked close for my needs


Some comparisons,
- Windows XP used 300mb when bootup with all softwares that I use
- Windows 7 uses 1200mb when bootup with all softwares that I use, what a TRUE WASTE !!! shame on you MS
(I cannot believe that people are not mad about this !, wake up people !!!!)

- Windows XP is much more snappier and response faster, clean, plain, simple
- Windows 7 is much more elegant in a bad way, fading out, elegantly ghosting, translucently hallucinating, BS....

- Windows XP boots as much as fast as Windows 7, I think it is the same.


Of course I do acknowledge there are more convenient things for dumb people, or computer illiterate.
Of course kids will fall in love for its Aero, trasnparent yet translucent, time wasting features.
Of course some won't care the huge initial ram usage compared to XP, saying that rams are cheap nowadays. BS....


I pray OS be just simple yet light and plain !
Those who try to throw me a stone, damn you, you are a computer illiterate !
Those who agree with me, I respect for your decency and independency of self intelectual minds !

Best solution

Yes ! You are correct, strokercrate.
Even for XP I used 'classic', I believe that was the look of win95.

You are a true gem for our society !

badge, forgive me if you think this is a flame bait.
But it is not. And I cannot seperate positive things only to its seperate categories for my thread is about comparison.

I will be using Windows 7 from now on, ditching XP.
The only paradox that I am seeking is 'why' I had to change to Windows 7 in terms of development compared to past.

I merely hoped veterans like you might enlighten me and persuade clearly why Windows 7 is the way to go.
I am seeking help on this, on this forum, Windows 7 help forum.

Regards,
PJ


PS. Badger, I hope you'r not working for Microsoft, or are you?

Yes, you're whining. Why are you even using winxp? By your logic, you should be using win95?

Or do you simply regard, 'help forum' as....

1. i can't install
2. my windows is green
3. icons are missing

These are help, but also,

My writing above is also a theoretical question seeking help.

Badger, I think you love Windows 7 and Microsoft, because you're simply blocking all negative questionares....

But I wrote that I am forced to use it.
You are not discussing.

I am simply seeking advices on why Windows 7 is better for the future.

WinXP is much more stable than Win95.
That is why I used WinXP. But still the plain look of Win95 was enough.

You are not discussing of anything. Stop whining on topics which you cannot meditate.

1 word, security

XP has been patched to high heaven, and somehow I think the trend wouldn't stop.

For me:
1. Aero is an "okay" addition, I could do what I originally did with XP and would probably wouldn't be looking at the transparent borders most of the time. I guess most people would be looking at the contents of the window which Aero really couldn't modify.

2. DX10/11 is not yet a "necessity", as the most you'd get are more explosions, a little bit more detailed environment, etc. Nothing really worth updating to, in the short-term.

3. I don't have cash for an SSD, so trim support is not really a big thing for me.

Time moves on. Enough said. XP is insufficient at supporting today's technology.

Turn off the "kids" stuff if you don't want it.

If you do not respect or want the opinion of others then this is not a discussion just a flamebaiting troll thread.
