Yes, but you should have got windows 7 with the option to down grade to windows XP pro till you got ready for windows 7. MS is going to stop supporting XP in the near future! You also could got windows 7 Pro or above and got virtual windows XP from MS for free and then you could have ran both windows7 and windows XP side by side. Just some thoughts. Beside windows 7 is not that hard to get use too and use. -----Original Message----- From: tabi-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:tabi-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Tinetta Cooper Sent: Friday, June 11, 2010 11:39 AM To: tabi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [tabi] Re: for those with a brand new pc I got my brand new Dell PC yesterday, but I didn't choose Windows 7. I'm sticking with Windows XP and I'm getting used to Office 2007.
