Question about Computers & Internet
Do not downgrade. 32 bit is out and even though you can still find some 32 bit machines, they are not what is current. Downgrading has TONS of errors, the most significant is drivers. The older OS cannot run the newer hardware topology. Even HD access drivers no longer work. stick with the 64 bit, it is an outstanding system, and it is stable. The downside is some really older programs do not run, even in compatability mode. Get updated programs.
Sorry, not the answer that you wanted. Early days allowed some downgrades, but no longer can you be successful. Why would someone develop a driver for an outdates OS.
Windows 7 works great, once set up correctly and user shown maybe 8 or 10 things that are different... Otherwise, you will be able to find and do everything. The coolest feature is the search feature, in upper right corner box of Windows explorer, type something about what you are looking for and the system brings up everything with that text in it, in title, body, subject, and other fields...Pretty cool for the disorganized.

The term "Drivers" is meaningless without
associating it with an Operating System and a specific item of Hardware.
There is no such thing as a "Driver".
There are only XP VGA LAN Drivers, Vista VGA Drivers or Windows7
Wireless Audio Drivers, Mac OSX Tiger WLAN Drivers. Mac OSX Leopard Epson Sx100
Printer Drivers, Mac OSX Lion Webcam Drivers, Linux Red Hat Midi Controller
Drivers, Linux Ubuntu Media Player Drivers, etc.
Although drivers seem to mainly be about hardware, they are actually mainly about software. The Driver does not physically control the Motherboard's Devices. The BIOS and the Operating System do. What the Driver does is (just like a human interpreter for a guest who speaks a different language from his host), introduce the Device to the Operating System and help them to communicate with one another, with the Driver taking instructions from both and passing it back and forth between them.
So when one mentions Drivers, one must also
mention the Operating System it will be talking to. In order for that to be
possible, the 2 must share a common language. If they do not, then the role of
'interpreter' is impossible, because, then neither the Driver nor the Device
will be able to understand what the Operating System is saying.
