Wow! I totally forgot about 7. Wasn't even a blip on the radar. Yeah you are right about 7 being much better than Vista. Foggy haha but I remember. If I could have any of them running smooth still, I'd choose XP. I think though, if I weren't so lazy to learn it, I might like Linux and never look back?IMO Windows 7 was the big improvement to Vista. 8 & 8.1 were steps sideways. 10 was another big step forward. Jury still out on 11.
