Subject: RE: windows 8 microsoft admit failure
I don't want Win8 - I'll wait till the next one come out before considering an upgrade.

The Win7 Ultimate is a great program, but it doesn't play nicely with some of the older devices and software. I have to use the 64-bit version of Internet Explorer, but the other browsers seem okay with 64-bit. I had to retire a couple of peripherals (a backup hard drive, and something else, I don't remember what now.) I should probably go back and see if there are drivers for those older devices now, but the Western Digital external drive was relatively small compared to others I'm using now. Probably not worth the trouble. I had to upgrade my version of Nero to work with the Win7/64bit system.
