I will not part with my cash no matter how many people tell me it is the best, just because it was a freebie.

£150? Nearly buy a new PC for that. How long do you think I can carry on using XP? Getting on for seven years now.

I think they were saying it's £79.99. Bit of a confusing article.

Have I misread it/ If I wanted to swap out XP for 7 in this PC, it would set me back £149.99, wouldn't it?

Not that I would............

all those who forked out good money for windows ME, er I mean Vista will be chomping at the bit to buy the next WOW factor, 7.

The vast majority of sales will be just like Vista, you are forced to have it with a new machine unless you can get the drivers and upgrade it to Linux or XP.
