It really depends on your hardware. Win 7 requires better video for Aero features(pretty interface effects) ---better 64-bit --Has more drivers included on dvd/out of box --Printers install easier Win XP --It just works --64bit is iffy but needed for large amounts of ram --support will expire in 3 years ---some newer devices/manufactorers already stopped guaranteeing compatibility If you told us what you wanted to use it for and what system you were putting it on then we could better answer. Personally unless it's 3+ years old I'd go with Win 7. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
