Question. Is there any reason why should I change to Windows 7?
I want to say, there is some disadvantage on using XP SP3 for the new versions of programs (related to the translation)? What cannot I do with my "old" OS?

I do not want to compare both OS. I ask only for a normal use as a translator (Office, CAT and dictionaries).

Thank you

Absolutely not. Not one reason. The only exception is that when you buy a new computer, then they sell it to you with the latest version of their Windows (while it is not MAC). But even then there is still the opportunity to go back to the elder version of Windows. It is also necessary to consider, that the new MS Windows version is always with new kinds of "bugs" until its Service Pack 1. So why do you need to hurry to get a new version?
