How long did you use XP for?

How long did you use XP for, and are you still using it or have you upgraded to a later Operating System?

I used Windows XP for about 5 years, but I finally decided to upgrade to Windows 7 after a lot of thought. It was hard to leave XP but it was worth it.

Re: How long did you use XP for?

On my desktop, back home, I have it since 2007 I think. And it's still running good. Before, I had another PC, which was also running on XP. I got that one from 2003. You can call me a big XP fan.

Re: How long did you use XP for?

If I am not mistaken I am using XP from 2003 or 2004 and still using it without any issues. I feel much comfortable using the XP rather then the Windows 7 which I have installed on the laptop.

Re: How long did you use XP for?

I am still using XP on my little netbook, only because the specifications is very low and probably wouldn't support Windows 7. When XP is no longer supported I will consider installing an old version of Ubuntu. You can't install much on an 8GB netbook though!

Re: How long did you use XP for?

I have used Windows XP for almost 4 years before i was introduced to Windows Vista,but it was shortlived because i soon upgraded to Windows 7.currently i am using Windows 8 on my PC,which i bought 4 days after official launch.
By far Windows XP has been the longest used OS for me.

Re: How long did you use XP for?

Never had a computer in my house running it (used it a lot at school tho). My parents went from W98 (and it's predecessors; dad started on Win 2 or 3 and mum started with punch cards and reel-to-reels with all the valves an' stuff) straight to OSX (which before XP came out was quite frankly the best OS available, not the lame POS it is these days), mums still on OSX, dad had a Linux phase swiftly followed by 7 which I have warned him not to upgrade to 8

Re: How long did you use XP for?

I'm a hardcore user too. If I remember well, I started using 7 in 2009. Until then, I was on XP, since 2002 I think. Pretty much, but it was an awesome OS.

Re: How long did you use XP for?

I have one plug-in boot disk for XP Pro 32, I have one plug-in boot disk for Win 7 Ult 64, I have one plug-in boot disk for Win 8 Pro 64, and I have one plug-in boot disk for Linux Mint14 64, all for an i7-920/X58 system with 24GB RAM. I have been running XP since it first came out, and skipped Vista completely.

I was thinking of putting one together for Win98ME, but it's too much of a pain to find drivers for a recent computer, so I didn't. I suppose I could set up my (still running) Pentium machine, currently supporting DOS 6.22, for it, but it's hardly worth it.

I used the XP for around 5 years. I last used the XP in August 2010. I am using the Win 7 from the last 2 years when I bought my laptop and it was equipped with the Win 7 Home Basic.
