Carolyn, Windows XP does a great job. If Windows Vista hadn't come preloaded on my last laptop, I would have chose to stay with XP. Service pack Two pretty much corrected all the initial problems XP had. It is now a good operating system. Windows Vista and Windows 7 have some quirks I don't like. I think I just like the minimalist approach to operating systems. I wish google would come out with the droid system for laptops.

if you do decide to upgrade the os stay away from vista

7 is much faster and more stable just make sure you got at least 1 gig of ram (2 preferably) I personally run 4 gigs of ram.

however with that being said I would recommend you run the upgrade advisor to be sure all will work well

link to downlad the advisor from microsoft is at the bottom of this page

And yes I have an external hard drive and an external dvd drive just for those times when some one wants me to work on thier netbooks

Cuz,

Are you trying to tell us you feel a little challenged in some technical areas?
