I have been using Windows 7 for years. XP and Vista had their bugs. 7 is really nice to use. I also like the layout of the Start button, the Control Panel, etc. I have an iPad which is not bad, but I don't like the Apple OSX software layout. With Windows, if something like my wireless printer quits working, I know where to go. So far, I am on my 2nd Windows 7 laptop (1st Toshiba lasted 3 years of hard use and abuse). It's fast, it's secure, it works. People always ***** about Windows but to me honest I really enjoy it. I have heard Windows 8 is a disaster though, but 7 seems great. You?
