XP, still

Last night I showed a rare level of self discipline by not installing Windows 7 on my laptop. My laptop runs XP and works flawlessly. The Windows 7 disk was free.  The disk went into the drive. I ran the compatibility wizard. I was going to have to install all my applications again and a couple of them might have needed updates. Windows 7 might have run faster. It is newer. I was going to have to learn to use all of the new things that are different. Did I mention that Windows 7 is newer? The final ‘install’ button was staring me down. My finger moved the cursor over the button. To push or not to push. Good vs evil. I came back from the brink. It was a small but significant victory.

The disk is safely back in its plastic sleeve.

Only a geek would understand.
