Why step away from the XP? At least it works which is more that I can say about Vista. Win 8.1? Very unattractive and user unfriendly. XP was M.S.'s first truly succesful operating system and might just as well have been their last. Anything that comes after is just an exercise in extorting money out of users pockets. Same for Office apps. Is their latest Office (2013) really better than what came before? Not really. For almost all home users XP and any older Office version is more than good enough.

One part of me enjoys this comic and the other part is saying 'why does the bazooka have ammo clip'. The other part of me was later killed using said submachinegun bazooka.

@ CharlieTuba: I haven't been following the Dilbert comic strip for very long, only a few months. I'm in the process of reading every strip in chronological order.

And I wasn't trying to be condescending in my original comment, just informative.

mjponso. Where were you last May when this strip came out? As you can probable tell I an Apple (Mac) fan. My first computer was a //e (the old 6502 8 bit processor) back in 1983.

@CharlieTuba: It's called Windows 7 because it's supposed to be the version number of the operating system (Windows 95/98/NT was version 4, Win XP was version 5, Win Vista was version 6). But if you look closely, the actual version number for Windows 7 is 6.1, which lends credence to the suggestion that Win 7 is meant to be Vista with all the bugs ironed out.
