It was the same case with me :) I mean I kept using an old OS and resisting the pressure to upgrade. And I am talking about Windows 98 SE!!!
I so loved Win 98 SE that long after XP became available and even up till the time that Vista was introduced, I was still using the machine with Win 98 SE installed on it. What finally made me give up is that the machine crashed and my Win 98 SE installer CD was no longer working (too many scratches, too old).
I still do have Win XP on a desktop PC. I cannot upgrade it because it only has 512 RAM and its RAM is DDR2 667 and I can't find 667 RAM cards to buy in our area, so I can't expand the memory. I guess I just have to accept the fact that the desktop is already too old anyway. But it's still good enough for making/typing up school projects, research, plain surfing and facebook and twitter and chatting and even video calling, which is what my kids use it for, even if it's a bit slow compared to my laptop.
