hi everyone I have a pc which used to have windows xp on it then I didn't like windows xp so I switched to Linux and installed ubuntu because it was free but after a while i started missing all my windows programs I know there are many replacements but there's nothing better then a the original windows version of it and so I want to install windows 7 and delete ubuntu is this possible and if so how ant what steps should I take.
start of buy telling me which version of windows 7 I should get and I really need to save up to get a new phone so nothing over around £120 any help is apreciated
Just going with my first click here. W/7 actually uses less memory than Vista.
I know nothing about it just what I read.
As Myself and rawprawn are not 100% sure maybe wait for another opinion before you buy anything. I do think that you would struggle with the 512 Mb I know mine worked Ok when using XP with the same amount of memory.
I don't think it is worth upgrading the computer to a newer version of Windows unless you are prepared to upgrade the RAM. Vista would be horrific with only 512MB (it's usually still quite bad with double that), and while Windows 7 is a much better operating system, I don't think it would run particularly well either. 512MB just isn't really enough anymore for a 'modern' operating system.
On a similar note, what is the spec of the rest of the computer? If the processor is getting on a bit or just plain gutless putting Vista or Windows 7 on it probably wouldn't help matters at all!
