My friend bought (or rather, was sold) a laptop running Vista - the shop had the same laptop running the Greek version of Windows 7. Do you experts recommend: 1. Install XP 2. Install Windows 7 3. Do nothing We are in Crete so English versions are hard to come by but I'm visiting UK soon and could buy the appropriate software - please do not suggest download (if that is in fact possible) because his internet connection regularly breaks down and could not be relied on for a big download. If your advice is to do nothing & live with Vista, can you suggest a simple book for simple people learn how to to do simple things in Vista!
The install of Win 7 over Vista is a simple one - I've not used it much yet, but like what I see. The books on computing that I like is the Dummies series. I haven't raed the Win 7 one yet, but found the XP version great for my less than computer literate friends/family. Can get it from WH Smiths or on line. click here
