    Downgrade from Windows 7 to VIsta
    « on: June 08, 2010, 01:47:25 AM »
    Although Windows 7 is better than Windows XP and Vista. But why some users downgrade from Windows 7 to Vista or XP?

    One reason might be compatibility. I know some games don't run at all or have issues running on Windows 7, for example World of Warcraft, which reportedly has issues on Windows 7 but runs fine on Windows XP and Vista.

      This may not only be the most moronic post I've ever read, it's also among the most insulting.

      "People like what they know" Applies to everybody, not just "old people".   ::)

      For example, I prefer Windows over Linux, because I know it better. 23 hardly counts as a senior.

      Whatever, Grandpa.  ;D

      That post shouldn't be insulting or moronic. It's quite true. A lot of people don't like change, especially when they struggle with understanding computers in the first place.

      Out of curiosity, who do you think developed computers in the first place?  If was a bunch of "old" people.  A bunch of "old" people were developing computers before most of us were born.

        True, however...

        or some people like what they no. like old people or people that dont understand computers

        A little work on the presentation is needed here.

        One reason might be compatibility. I know some games don't run at all or have issues running on Windows 7, for example World of Warcraft, which reportedly has issues on Windows 7 but runs fine on Windows XP and Vista.

        Crysis is another one.  It'll work in Vista compatibility mode on 7, but not out-of-the-box. 

        Also Windows 7 dropped support for Windows Meeting Space and Dreamscene.  I know these two things aren't widely used (and the latter can be hacked back in), but still. 

        The classic Start Menu is another thing that was "removed."  Yes, I know there are ways to get it back in Windows 7, but not out of the box, and if it's not out of the box, people are going to shun it.  Why?  Because...

        A lot of people don't like change

        Part of the problem is most people don't generally deal with computer problems. So for most they think that close enough is good enough.

        Crysis works fine for me here on windows 7 without any special settings...

        I hated XP and wanted to go back to 98.

        Then I realized it wasn't a hate for XP as much as it was a hate for change. Also, that and the fact that I was quite certain I would have a lot of work to do to get my programs working properly in NT. (turned out the issues I did have with it were minor)

        So as i said before people like what they know even if the new might work better. And by the way most Granny's are to computer illiterate to understand how to turn the f-ing computer on and off! So before you get all pissy why don't you take a step back and look at the majority instad of the minority
