Yes, win 7.

I actually had lots of problems with XP crashing, and it usually had to do with the drivers. Clean installs work great, but I had issues the longer the machine ran.

3GB can be enough, XP is not resource hungry, but the apps can be (which is true for w7 also).

Nothing wrong with XP, but for me, after running win 7, that is all I would install on a new system.

If I need to reinstall, I will consider it, but my install is clean, although it is several years old. I had a blue screen once in three years. No problems with drivers. But I did not build it myself, it is a standard Dell workstation, and I just update BIOS and drivers from time to time.

If I already had XP running on a system, I would likely leave it alone.

The advantage of Win 7 is that finally we have something more similar to a Operative System that works. that we had not before.

Take your Pips, go out and Live.

My biggest problem with windows 7 is that I can't get it to see my xp box over an ethernet connection. Xp sees 7, but not vice versa. I have tried all the fixes, etc. and I still can't get it to work. I was able to get it to connect wirelessly very easily though. It's not fast, but you may want to try it if you are having the same problems.
