Guess why.

No DirectX 9 support for Battlefield 3


anyway. I need someone who is using/had used it to tell me the benefits (system speed, etc) enough to convince my dad to do that...

I've already got the money, I just need to convince the old man.

Tell your dad that win7 is fastest OS ever created(i am using it). If some program stop working in windows 7(Dads always hear rumors about programs that can only work on win XP) tell him that windows 7 has virtual windows xp so if some program won't work, virtual xp is available.

Dude.

THAT'S COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE!


IT WOULD BE LIKE TELLING EBERT TO REVIEW A REMAKE OF NORTH.

^

Imagine you're doing that. Only it's convincing a former tech-reviewer to upgrade.

I'd willing to hijack his dreams if I can.

You confused me there but here is another thing:


Tell him that windows xp won't be available as microsoft said, so programs will be discontinued for xp.

That will be a good one.

But I need MUCH more than that.

I have time until December...

Tell him (lol): Cheesy


Windows 7 is easy to handle, much easier than xp. It boots a lot faster. All programs are nicely in line...

Mass Effect 3: XP, Vista.

"easy to handle"
UAC blocking everything ever
"boots faster"
Nope.

You need a reason? Tell him MS is phasing out XP and you need Win7 before they stop supporting it.

It's the only reason many people are leaving XP and getting 7 at all.

You sad as i said. When i said about booting, i didn\t sadi the loading screen, i sad about welcome screen when it pass welcome screen it starts faster and it don't freeze.UAC is blocking hackers as i heard, UAC isn't blocking everything, unless you  ain't administrator. Third, his dad is probably not a gamer a program maker or something, so he probably does not care about updates, he is a real person. But programs that will be in the future...2014,2015, probably won't be for xp.... So he may need some of those programs.....

XP really isn't any faster than 7, honestly.
A lot of people think it is because their XPs had good specs, then they move to a computer with 7 with horrible specs and blame the OS for it.
I reccomend 7, and as you guys have said MS won't be supporting it anymore.

No support

...

This would actually BE good

Since I'm going to plant this idea a few months from now, and the old man is converting to Mac. Thanks guys

but I still need some more. He's a tough nut to crack.
 
Granting I'm going to plant him this idea

also. From experience using school win7 computers, it certainly shuts down a LOT faster than my 32-bit XP.

you have to understand. He does not think that way.

He is a coldly logical man with anti-conformity thoughts and a MASSIVE ego.

Mac can't do anything, at all, no form of programming, and it's just... linux, but, worse.

They're almost never compatible with anything, they actually DO slow down, but, admittedly, not as fast as windows

BUT, this is only because they do virtually nothing.

they're barely running ANYTHING, i'm pretty sure they don't have a task manager (as linux does not)

Also, inform him that everything they have said (except robs statement) is bull.


Windows XP is getting phased out, and from what i've been noticing, windows 7 is XP 2.5

The only thing that really slows it down in comparison (and what people are complaining about) is the aero GUI, which, you can just get a custom one, like the one i'm using.

And even then, aero doesn't do that much.
