I have installed the LR4 trial on my laptop which runs Windows 7. However on my desktop machine I am unable to use LR4 as it is still running Windows XP. Is there anyway that I can either save my catalogs as LR 3 until I get my sytems all the same? I have notices a lot of issues with the LR4 and so am rather unsure about upgrading.

No. The schemas are incompatible.

The great majority of customers who purchased Lr 4.x are using it with very few problems. User forums are notoriously self-selecting.

There are recommendations and guidelines you can pay attention to so that your upgrade experience is as smooth as possible.
