    Two words: .NET Framework

    It's so sloppily coded, I'm forced to use XP to resolve performance issues. And before anyone asks, no the issues will not go away if I recompile the code natively (using .NET native) or buy a faster computer. I've tried both, and performance still stank on Win7/8.1...

    There's just something about XP's uber efficient code handling of .NET Framework apps.

    Btw, this rant is very valid b/c if you take FireFox 40+, it runs just as fast on Win7 as on XP. MSFT's forte was never in coding efficiency as is evident by the bloat each successive Windows version receives.

    I absolutely love the way people complain about Vista being a resource hog, when the reality is that Vista SP2 is faster than 7 SP1.

    Windows XP however has always been light and I have never had any 'slowness' issues with it, which is always a good thing - although I do not use XP anymore, I have never had many issues to it, as stated.

    The problem that started with Microsoft later on in time is never good.
