    'still' as in still running PS7 (circa 2002, i.e. pre-CS). It works fine
    on XP, but I am going to replace my PC soon. Debate is whether I will be
    able to run my old PS7 or if I need to migrate to Gimp (as the cost of a
    new PS is exhorbitant).

  3. You can use a virtual XP PC on Windows 7 Professional too. But that doesn't
    matter as PS will run on Windows 7 anyway.

    I don't see any reason why it won't work (I no longer use PS7 to know how
    well it works). But just wanna let you know that Windows 7 (especially
    WIndows 7 64-bit) is pretty picky on audio, graphic card, and driver too.

    I upgraded my system from WinXP to Windows 7 64-bit (my Laptop has Windows
    7 32-bit) and I have to upgrade both Audio and Graphic Card. Windows 7
    64-bit worked great for few months until MS upgraded the Monitor Driver
    (Samsung SyncMaster T240HD) to newer driver and it started having some issue
    (it has been going on for around 2 months or so now)

    IOW, Windows 7 itself it a good OS and shouldn't be an issue, but some
    DRIVER may. I also do lot of DVD burning and Windows 7 64-bit has some
    burning issue too while 32-bit has no problem.

    Yep, I have heard fairly good things about Windows-7 64-bit. I was burnt
    with an early Vista 64-bit at work - ran like a dog (still does) and I
    hated the dumbed-down interface, so I only use that machine in remote
    mode as a number-cruncher. My usual desk-top machines at work and home
    have stuck with Win-XP, but now my home machine is showing its age. I
    presume that people don't have much trouble with drivers etc when buying
    new machines rather than upgrading.

    Thanks for the warning - luckily (?) my printer is on its last
    legs...only thing I am likely to 'save' is my 6x4 Wacom graphics pad
    (and if drivers are a problem for that I could upgrade there too).

    No problem at all, you can find all the Windows 7 drivers even for
    prehistoric tablets on the Wacom website (worked with old graphire)
