Have had XP for several years and Win7 is like a whole new world. I suppose I'll become accustomed eventually, but, right now, I'm doubtful.
Do you like it?

Yes. Networking seems a little easier. I prefer 7 over XP. Windows 8 is pretty close to win 7 with some exceptions.

I felt the same way at first, but in a month you will be glad you have 7, it's a lot better, just a bit of a learning curve. We get comfortable with something and resist change, and we went from XP to 7 and Office 2003 to 2010 at the same time, plus having to learn OneNote and Sharepoint and now when I see XP I wonder how we managed so long with it.

Haven't dealt with XP on my own equipment in several years here (Been on at least Vista since RTM).

Hate, hate, hate, working in XP after all these years of dealing with Vista and 7. Will be really glad when we drop support for it completely next year and I don't have to ever see it again!

Win7 is great. It the new XP, meaning that people will be sticking with it for a long time. Just about the only thing I like better about XP is the logon UI. They somehow managed to make it simpler and more complicated at the same time in Vista/7/8.

Yes I do; having mine for about a month. Better than XP or vista both of which I had.I tried a windows 8 but return it within 30 days allowed and ordered two window 7 CPUs from HP. Wifes XP needed replacing and after using it decided to replace mine with vista before they stopped building them.

Windows 7 is not all that different from XP from a general use standpoint, be thankful you didn't go to Windows 8.

7 is Microsoft's best OS to date. Period.

Windows 7 is great. Windows 8, I don't like. I'm holding out hope for the new updates though.

I made the switch from XP to 7 last year. Of course it was just a bit weird at first, but now I've grown fond of Windows 7. It's more "polished" than XP, among other things. You were lucky to get Windows 7 on your computer. Every PC I've seen on the market comes with the dreaded Windows 8.
