    That is the most important thing, after all.

    If they ever get frustrated by the speed you could upgrade them to an SSD. A 32-bit system would only be able to see about 2.9GB of useable RAM even if you upgraded them to 4GB, so I'd suggest an HDD to SSD upgrade would be more effective.

    Yes, upgrading the HDD to SSD is the more useful upgrade that can be done.

    As a postscript, I've just dropped the HDD I originally used to test a clean install of 32-bit 1709 Home back into the AMD V120 PC. But I'd forgotten that I'd subsequently used it to test a clean install of 64-bit 1803 Pro on another machine.

    Surprisingly it worked quite well, despite only having 2GB to play with. The biggest surprise of all was that my V120 supports virtualisation, so I got it to successfully run a Hyper-V virtual machine (albeit a little on the slow side) before I swapped the drive out again.

    I have been using w10 on old pcs with 1GB of RAM. It will work although slowly. 2GB RAM makes for a big difference.

    I do Know with Defender they intergreated OneDrive with the April Update, if using Office 365 LOL, supposedly for ransomware protection, and I have to wonder if that is leading to slowdowns experienced, not sure if it is or not,

    But I did try WIndows 10 on an older Intel Atom Small Form Factor PC, 2gb of ram, 1.6ghz single core in the Past--was so slow was unusuable lol, so I was like well back to Windows 7, and it couldn't even hardly run that lol, gave that PC to sister lmao

    Win10 Home and Pro, Win10 Insider Preview, WinXP Home Premium, Linux Mint, Win7 Pro

    All of this hearkens me back to MS-DOS 5 OS running the Win3.1 GUI on an AMD 80386SX/40MHz computer. A noticeable improvement for the GUI was the addition of an optional math coprocessor chip. More money could have gotten the 80386DX chip which included the math coprocessor. That was a pretty common understanding with the difference between Celeron and Pentium chips and AMD Athlon vs. Sempron whether factually completely accurate or not.

    A few are finding they need to use low level drivers from previous Windows builds. Does 1709 run on it?
    Sound really interesting but how do you get those low level drivers ? From 1709 ISO ?
