  • Hard drive going out, should I upgrade to winders 8?

    In another thread I said my boot hard drive is going out. I was looking to just clone that onto a new hard drive and keep going. I am running windows xp at the present time. I am now wondering since I will be getting a whole new hard drive would it be a good time to just get windows 8 and go with that? Any opinions on this?

    Microsoft will stop updating/supporting XP in April of 2014. If you intend on keeping your current machine past that time, then upgrading is probably a good idea.

    The discounted upgrade pricing for Windows 8 ends January 31 so if you are going to do it do it before then.

      Okay thanks. I have a lot of older programs that I would like to keep. Would if be better to go to window 7 or window 8? I have been reading that windows will not run a lot of different software.

        I don't know which would be better at running old programs. Sorry.

          Depending on your computer, you can run two HDs.
