“I have a laptop & desktop with windows 2000 on it, is windows7 a good upgrade or not

Never put XP or Vista on them”


If you are happy with 2000 stay with it, Windows 7 is Vista with a facelift and some major

changes that make it more compatible with XP and Vista programs and more user friendly

Making the upgrade from 2000 to 7 would be a major upgrade for you as the layout and access to

difference areas of the OS can be a real pain


If you want try windows 7 I would suggest that you install it on a second hard drive on the

Desktop, which would you to change back to 2000 without to much hassle, by just rebooting the

computer and selecting the correct hard drive to boot from

Sorry “which would you to change” should read, “which would allow you to change”

The two hard drive system is what I have at the moment on my desktop which allow me to

choose which OS to boot from XP or Windows 7

If they both came with Windows 2000 on them it would suggest that perhaps they are a bit too old and restricted in specification to even run Windows 7. A bit more information on the hardware specs of both machines would make it much easier for meaningful advice to be offered.
