[quote="Alex01UK"]You're better off installing Windows 7, and turning off all the fancy gui stuff. And if not powerful enough still, upgrade your hardware. A decent PCI graphics card isn't very expensive at all. A possible problem could be if you're at your max ram. Just upgrade your motherboard, and throw the old one away. Why do people insist on trying to run old / often faulty hardware? What is the point. It's really not that expensive to stick a new motherboard in with ram / onboard graphics etc.
[quote="Alex01UK"]Why would anybody in their right mind want to run XP? It's rubbish! The 64 bit version has problems with drivers, and the 32 bit version is, well, 32 bit! Stuck with media player 9 and ie 9 I think? What is the point in that when you could run LUBUNTU 13.o4?
Agree I like windows 7 but heh some people prefer XP bless em.
As for your legacy hardware point there are probably several reasons but for many the biggest one is probably a lack of funds to be able to upgrade to the latest and greatest.
My legacy stuff works just great and is still pretty grunty for its age. It can do everything I need it do and more with my special customised DIY operating system which I am pretty damn proud of.
So I think we should stop this tiresome need to put people down who run what they do it does nothing for the community and only puts newcomers off. My point a person's financial situation should not penalise them from being able to use a computer because they can't afford the latest and greatest take a look at this as an example of this in New Zealand http://www.molten.org.nz/
Some people have software which won't run on the latest windows which runs on XP.
If you enjoy the latest and greatest good for you. So have a great day and enjoy your Ubuntu - glad you like it.
