No,Windows 7,Windows XP and Windows Vista are very user friendly. They are not like Windows 8. As for installing Windows 8 on one of my netbooks. First there is no CD drive. But I could install it the same way I installed Linux Mint. Mount the ISO file on virtual clone drive. but the catch is you have to first partition the hard disk. So I read but with Linux Mint you don't.Because you can install it inside Windows. But Windows is different.
Also I do not know how to partition the hard disk. And it is likely that if I tried I would mess up my computer. Also I could wipe out my Windows 7 operating system altogether, if I did not know what I was doing.
I would love to install Windows 2000 alongside my Windows 7. some people do it. But I have read many tutorials and it is too complicated. I cannot even install it in virtual box or virtual machine
. That does not work either. I think it is because I don't know how to use Virtual Box.
So Windows 8 will not be going on my netbook because I don't have the skill to install it anyway. Not without messing something up.
But if I could install operating systems,sure,I would have Windows XP and Windows 2000 running side by side in duel boot on my Windows 7 netbook. But as it is, I have got two Windows XP netbooks. So I have both Windows XP and Windows 7,just on different netbooks. Andrea Borman.
