    Thank you, Cliff. I've been waiting for someone to say that.

    I think I only used XP for about 6 months then jumped on the Vista band wagon. And I was glad I did. Of course I move to the next higher OS when I can or buy a new PC any how, so I guess that's not saying much then. I did get lucky and skipped 8 and 8.1(my desktop came with 8.1 update already).

    Uh oh... Don't you bash Windows 8/8.1 Cliff. I'll let you know I love that OS.

    What a coincidence Cliff. That is very similar to myself in that I only used XP at home for a few months at most (first PC bought Dec 2006) and I upgraded using my free Vista disc as soon as possible. That old Acer 9301 laptop is still going strong and has successfully run XP, Vista and Seven, W8.1 and Ten as trials. Its back to its super clean Vista install now and it doesn't disappoint.

    8.1 is the stand out performer from all so far imo. And I never liked Seven.

    Chuck... 8.1 update is my favorite OS ever, be it Windows or one of the thirty-odd Linux distros I have tried. The only reason I'm upgrading my Win8.1U PC is security and to receive more doo-dads later. I found it(personally) the most intuitive OS ever. But I do like the ability to resize universal apps in Ten.

    There you go! Dude The author wasn't Steve Forbes to begin with but a Contributer. So you get whatever?! The 2-4yrs. however isn't so much the life cycle of support of hardware but the 2-4yr. actually more like 2 or 3yr. schedule for each new version of Windows upto and after what was seen while XP was having it's own extended glory days until MS finally got Vista ready. They were 3yrs. late according the 2yr. or 3 yr. release schedule they had been seeing with the Legacy editions and ME, Win 2000 which came up from NT on the Pro/corporate side of the equation there.

    The desktop market as such until it slumped big time during our recent depression? or recession was proceeded by companies upgrading to each new version by replacing existing machines with new ones that came with the next version pre-installed or they upgraded inbetween and their IT dept.s tended to the OS upgrade by volume. The consumer simply went out to Circuit City or Walmart to grab a new machine desktop or laptop to get the newer version if not savoy enough to upgrade on his or her own.

    Ah, I see. I misunderstood you.

    I plan to dual boot Windows 10 with my Windows 8.1 copy.
