But in order to use IE 9, one must "upgrade" away from XP. I don't care for either OS past XP. As a matter of fact, before I will upgrade to one of those, I will switch over to Apple.
Thanks for the information, but I've already experienced Windows 7. It was nearly impossible to remove it and re-install XP. I tend to think that Microsoft's "upgrades" are to be shunned and dreaded.
Maybe I'm just an old fogey. I thought Windows 2000 Pro was the best. XP is pretty good. Maybe if I took the hundreds of hours to learn Vista (which my daughter has on her laptop) or 7, I would like it. But I can do everything I want to do on XP. I have NO problems with Firefox. I recently got rid of the "redirect" bug on IE 8. And, with XP, all my software still works.
So, Captain PC, thanks for the info, but I will stay away from anything further from Microsoft.
