I'm another one who has no plans to downgrade from Windows XP any time soon. BTW, you can buy genuine versions of XP on ebay easy enough. Glen On 4-Mar-2010 09:59, Gerald Levy wrote:
Microsoft intends to continue support for XP Sp3 through 2014. But millions of users will probably keep using it well beyond then. As long as it still meets your needs, there's absolutely no reason to upgrade to Windows 7. All these people who rush out to buy a new computer every time MS releases a new version of Windows must have money to burn. I don't. As long as my XP system keeps running and does what I need it to do, I plan to hold on to it as long as I can.Gerald ----- Original Message ----- *From:* Dorothy Ingram-Gorban <mailto:dorothy.ingram-gorban@xxxxxxxxx> *To:* jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx <mailto:jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> *Sent:* Wednesday, March 03, 2010 5:40 PM *Subject:* RE: Jaws with Window's 7 I am wondering how long xp willbe supported,and by Jjaws,it is not just Microsoft but the makers of screen reading software that may not support older versions, are many of you using windows 98?

I just had two systems built with XP. My computer tech had the foresight to purchase quite a number of XP licences before they went out of production. Contact me off list and I can provide the computer geek's information. He provides the computer with XP installed together with original XP disks and licence and registration.

I want to get a new computer, but apparently windows XP isn't sold anymore. Does jaws work with windows 7, because windows vista? I tried that on my mom's computer and jaws just...ugh. Security windows popping up everywhere, jaws wasn't reading properly... Does anyone know if windows 7 works with jaws, and if not, do you know of anywhere that will sell XP or add XP if I have a computer custom made / build up from scratch, etc? Thanks so much.
