    According to my son, who is a tech whiz, Windows7 is going to be a big improvement on XP, with Vista being a complete disaster from day one. Windows7 wasn't rushed through like Vista was with all it's bugs plus being a huge cumbersom program. I must admit, I feel comfortable with the old XP!!

    From The Microsoft website..

    Mainstream Support delivers complimentary and paid support, free security updates, and bug fixes to all Windows customers who purchase a retail copy of Windows XP (i.e., a shrink-wrapped, not pre-installed copy). Mainstream Support for Windows XP will continue through April 2009.

    Extended Support delivers free security updates to all Windows customers. Customers can also pay for support on a per incident basis. Extended Support for Windows XP will continue until April 2014. New bug fixes require the Extended Hotfix Support program.

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------

    So basically you can not call Microsoft for support. Mainstream support ended in April. So for XP users, you will need to use support/internet groups and boards for support.

    It was more like about 50 trips to change the size of different things on the screen now that it's wide :D

    I think I will stick with XP for a while. Don't want to have to upgrade my printer, web cam, fax, & software for now. Do you think Microsoft would tell you buy this it sucks?
