Why The Big Hurry To Upgrade?
I’ve wondered for a long time why it is that most people seem to be in such a bleeding rush to get the latest version of whatever. In the case of security fixes I understand. However when it comes to OS “upgrades” such as XP to Vista or Seven, I really don’t understand the big rush.
My philosophy is “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it.” and that’s the approach I take to OS upgrades. XP pro has worked form me since I first installed it. Over the years I’ve gotten to know it and many of it’s little quirks fairly well and it easily does what I need it to. Therefore I see zero reason to “upgrade” it to Vista OR Seven. I’m going to stick with XP Pro for as long as it will do what I need it to.
Besides, I am entirely too busy with entirely too many irons in the fire right now to be able to take time to learn the ins, outs, and little quirks of a new OS.
There’s another advantage. I know the specs on my laptop say that it’s capable of running Vista or Seven. I also know that the specs for XP Pro are much lower requirements. This means that a computer capable of running vista or seven should, and in my case has, perform especially well if it’s running XP. It’s lower system requirements leave a LOT more resources for my video editing and animation applications.
