    Operating System

    I'm planning on getting rid of vista.
    My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 6400 and was built for XP but is Vista capable (but not really)
    Not sure If I should change to Windows 7 or XP
    1.83GHz
    1gb RAM

    What would be best for me and why?
    I don't have a spare usb drive anymore but I have a few DVDs I can write stuff on.
    The DVDs are a maximum of 4.5gb (Or near that)


    So what OS should I get

    I enjoyed XP Professional, it didn't have too many bells and whistles but you can add WHATEVER YOU WANT to the bitch. The good old days

    Yea XP Professional was legendary back in the days. Pirate XP or just use any XP you have lying around, unless you want to buy it. Windows 7 would lag with all the Aero effects.

    Fine
    Unless you're looking to play games you could perhaps give some linux distro a shot. Perhaps the noob-friendly Ubuntu. Or just stick to XP (though 7 could work, but not quite as well)
