XP Versus Windows 7

Just trying to gauge how many are still on XP.

Windows 7 is in my future... don't know when I need to pull the trigger.

Microsoft said they will support Windows XP SP3 until April 2014. After that date, there will be no more updates or security patches. I'm still using XP on my secondary PC. My main PC has Vista.

I've been in IT for over 15 years. I've always been frustrated with Windows and did everything I could to avoid administrating it (stuck with Unix/Linux), but now that I'm using NinjaTrader I have no choice. So far I'm pretty happy with Windows 7 SP1 and hope Windows Server 2008 SP1 is certified for NinjaTrader at some point. I would definitely suggest starting with SP1 vs installing it afterwards.

I'm running Windows 7 SP1 fine on an old AMD Sempron 1.8Ghz with 2GB of RAM.

Windows Server 2008 works fine with Ninjatrader 7. I run it on a remote server and is as stable as Windows 7.

I have found Windows 7 to be stellar. It is as stable as XP but looks much better and has some nice features.

XP, 7 or 8 ?

Still with XP, have an eye on 7 and waiting to see what Windows 8 will offer. After trying 7 as a RC i know it can work
on the machine that i have now, but before making a final decision, i want to know if "8" can adapt to it, and there is info
that it will, Microsoft Confirms Windows 8 will run on Existing PCs .

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
