I installed the 32 bit version of Windows 7, not the 64 bit, on that PC. I did it to see if it would install and run on a low powered PC as one of the claims is that Windows 7's hardware requirements are less than Vista's. I doubt it and suspect that people with older PCs will still need to get something newer and powerful for Windows 7 just as was the case for Vista. Anyway, regardless of performance, it looks to me like the look-and-feel of Windows 7 is much the same as Vista and thus a far cry from XP.
