1. Are there actually any programs I plan to use that will only work under XP? IE proprietary/custom software or extremely old software.
2. Do I already have XP and am i too lazy to have a dual boot?
3. Do I not know a student in college who can get me win 7 pro for $30? (same price as home premium)
edit: Link to $30 win 7. When you click to add win 7 to cart, look for a little popup that asks do you need to connect to your school network? and click on that for pro for the same price.http://www.win741.com/
