    Roll a free windows 10 update over the Win 7 volume (while you still can ) it might put some new life into the old dog ............use it on the web with XP and it might become a bot slave

    I don't know, Winuser. If you haven't used your old Win 7 laptop in years, you might as well upgrade it to 10 while it's free. But I'd take care of that XP laptop. It could allow you to use older programs, especially if it's a 32-bit laptop.

    Years ago, I had a new Win 7 machine built, and I had the guy put a legal copy of XP on a partition. Later, I added a partition for 8, and later I upgraded 7 to 10. But the XP particion (It's 32-bit on a 64-bit machine) allows me to play a few old games that I like.

    Sure you can do all that with enough hard drive or another one I have a small ~ 250 GB win XP hdd out of an old P4 box that replaced the original 150GB hdd . I never use it but I could always strip or copy some stuff from the windows healthy partition for anthing I want anyway .

    I have some game emulators I can run on the SB i7 game capable PC with a decent nvidia d/GPU here but they don't always do everything or everything well anyway .

    OTOH 1080p ultra gaming at high settings on the newer games with a decent CPU& d/GPU is not bad either it beats the console slave PS3 here .

    Tempting! I only kept it in case I need to run a program or game on a older version of Windows. I wonder how many Windows 7 updates would download if I did start it up? It's been years since I last used it. If I do try it I won't connect to the net while in XP. XP is to old and insecure.

    Yes, since XP is no longer supported. April of 2014, two year ago, can't believe it has been that long.

    I agree! A is better than B or B is better than A is a matter of user preference. Reporting known issues can be beneficial.
