I want my Windows 95 back. The paintbrush program was better, it had other photo editing & cropping & fading/transparency features, and it had really cool themes & screensavers. I miss the "Horror" and "Mystery" themes.<quoted text>
W7 and W8 don't like to play together. Microsoft did that intentionally.
My next question is personal and brutally honest:
"Why on earth do you want W8 ?" I spend more time getting it OFF computers.
My professional opinion is: If you have no overwhelming reason to NOT use XP then don't upgrade....ever.
"We put a man on the Moon with the functional equivallent of a Commodore 64. Now why do you need a $5000 PC to do your job ?" LOL
I told the damn Windows people, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." But would they listen to me? Nnnnnnnnoooooooo...
