    As one Geek tip to another do not and warn others to avoid upgrading or new systems that have Windows 7 Home Premium. From first hand experience it supports less software than the Vista Home Premium.

    The only versions anyone reading this and will want tell others about to buy are. Windows 7 Business, Windows 7 Pro, and Windows Ultimate. These are the only versions that support the additional XP Mode that I know of currently.

    Once again do not buy Windows Home Premium. Make sure also to inform others.
