Did you try Windows 7? What were your main concerns?
I moved to Vista when it came out as I was anxious to try the new thing. I remember looking fondly back at XP at the time although I didn't seem to have the trouble others did. However, since I moved to windows 7 once it came out, I've been very happy with it.
If you have not given it a through try I suggest doing so. You might be surprised.
Yepper, I have several people I support who use Windows 7. My wife has Windows 7 on her laptop.
For the people I support who use Windows 7, I found that the parental controls, part of Windows Live Family Safety, are leaps and bounds ahead of XP. Ditto for other features.
Note that these folks, including my wife, did not upgrade from an existing system. They started with the system that came with Windows 7.
Windows 7, however, will not run on any of my systems. Why throw out a perfectly good, working system, when it still has many more months, maybe even years, ahead of it, just to pay Microsoft for the "privilege" of using Windows 7, and Dell/Acer/Whatever several hundred more dollars for a machine that will run Windows 7?
At home, I have one system that is pure XP. The others are running Ubuntu, with XP in a VirtualBox.
If I could run TCMD 14 under Wine, which, by the way, emulates Windows 2.0 all the way to Windows 7, I would be doing that. The only JPSoftware version that I can get to work under Wine is 4NT8. Visual Basic 6, PowerBASIC, and such, run just fine under Wine.
When people purchase new systems, I get their old ones. I clean these systems up, install Ubuntu, and give them to people who have no systems. Otherwise, these systems, which are in fine, working condition, would end up in the garbage.
If I were to move on, and "modernize", I would not be using the command line, and would have no need for TCMD/TCC. I am more productive with the command line than I am with the GUI, having started with such back in the late 1970's.
If Rex were able to get TCMD 14 working under Wine, which emulates Windows 7, I would re-purchase the registration keys for TCMD 14. Until that time, TCMD 13 and the Bash Shell will be what I use to get my daily tasks completed.
