I'm still running Windows XP on my PC. I do use newer systems on client computers, but I am reluctant to upgrade at all. Why? First of all, I like Office 2003, especially as I am so comfortable drawing complex diagrams with it and I find getting used to newer Office versions a bit awkward, especially with those infuriating Ribbons of Death. Also, every time I go to PC World the reps put me off buying a PC by trying to convince me to add on so much stuff I don't need, or by trying to flog me a pre-built PC that doesn't ideally meet my specifications. I just keep walking away empty-handed. Bonus: I can watch more Youtube videos than most users of more modern (i.e. more censored) systems. Problem: I can't run much in the way of VS software, but then the free versions were a bit deficient anyway, which has added momentum to my move to Java, though I can't use Netbeans 8. Additional problem: Windows put me off with all that Metro rubbish and its clunky 'touchscreen' icons - I want a PC OS not some hybrid. I will upgrade eventually, but I am reluctant.
