    What Windows Version do you use with RR ?

    We'd like to know which windows version RR users are using/not using so we can better improve the code based on the capabilities of our user's machines. Mainly we need to know if there are still any users of Windows 9x/NT/2000 as we're almost in 2010! (specially when many newer features require better machines and a minimum OS support).

    Please pick ALL the versions you CURRENTLY use in your machineS (If more than one).

    I use Win7 on my desktop and XP in the car. It is hard to test it on Win7 as many functions are different.

    I think ME should have been a separate option.














    Just so we could have a big laugh at anyone who selected it.

    funny thing that you mention Win ME. I actually still have an old box laying around my apartment running ME. I basically use it for a few old school dos games I still play, but WIN ME as an OS was a blue screen of death nightmare.

    The only person who voted for 98/ME so far is running linux so I assume this was a joke.

    Maybe he's just been blagging the Linux bit because he is embarrassed at being the only person in the world still using ME.

    What are the advantages of using Win7.
    I have the beta but it seems more eye candy than functionality.
    Maybe I just dont have the ambition to switch from XP.

    The coolest feature I know of is the individual volume control for different applications.
    Now this is very usefull in a car but
    But XP is incredibly solid, well supported and honestly is the best OS microsoft has come up with in a long time. Just seems hard for me to fathom switching to something new. Eventually I probably will though.. Who knows....
