Here is a list of reasons as to why the Windows 7 upgrade could be a waste of time.
  • If you have Vista running smoothly
  • If you have XP and it's running smoothly
  • If you don't see the point in the superbar
  • Not much has changed since Vista

1. Even if Vista runs smoothly, it's still a resource hog compared to Seven.
2. If you're still using Windows XP, you should consider upgrading. After all, Windows XP is EIGHT YEARS OLD!!
3. You shouldn't upgrade your Operating System just for "eye candy".
4. A lot has changed since Vista - most of which is "behind the scenes" to make it quicker, lighter on resources and more stable.

There are only 2 real reasons why not to upgrade.
  • You can't afford the cost of the new operating system.
  • You are using old hardware (such as a printer), which will probably have issues on Seven.
The latter reason can be extended to users using old software too (alongside businesses as it may not be worth the large-scale upgrade costs).

1) if ur a mac boy or linux junkie
2) dont know the pottential of win7
3) have not orderd it yet while its still cheap enough

i cant see a valid reason to not upgrade to windows 7 (even though i just posted a few) as win 7 has better security then win xp style of vista but performance almost = to xp and lets face it.. win7 is the best thing microsoft have done since windows 2000.. xp is by no meens more stable then 7

4) holding back the pennies for the worth while upgrade of dx11 gpus etc

Reasons Not To:
XP is perfectly fine, and I recommend using the original XP instead of downloading a torrent of W7 like what millions do.
Win 7 is expensive.
It still requires a lot of system memory, though it is less than Vista.
Win 7 is still slightly buggy. Wait for SP1 before upgrading.

That's not true (what illage is saying)
Why should you upgrade:
-If you have Vista running smoothly (7 is faster)
-If you have XP running smoothly (7 is faster)
If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

XP may not be broken, but the new OS' do some things better, and XP is nearing the end of its life span. I use XP, but if I get a laptop, its either gonna be 7 or BackTrack3 on it.
