“After I compared the performance of Windows 7 with that of Windows Vista, a lot of readers expressed interest in seeing a comparison with the decade-old, but still popular, Windows XP. So I decided to see how each of the three operating systems compared to each other in several crucial categories. Frankly, the results were a bit surprising. While they aren’t a knockout blow for Windows 7, they do show that, by some measures, XP outperforms Windows 7 on legacy hardware.”
