So I left Windows XP SP2 and went over to Apple in 2006. I know that I said on this forum that I would use Linux or Apple before Windows but difficulty with miniDSP on my Mac prompted me to purchase Windows 10 Home. After installing 10 I found that my old Dell monitor, that has a DVI -> HDMI adapter, just didn't cut it. Initially I was thinking "Wow, this looks horrible. This is what Microsoft has been doing in 14 years?" After connecting my OptiPlex 7040 to my 50" plasma screen via HDMI I see that it wasn't the OS but my hardware. So now I'm in the process of purchasing Blue Iris.

I still have a XP machine. I have some programing software that will not run with anything later.

Yeah, I did a boot up repair on a XP Home SP3 machine last week for a realtor (it was in the boot up "repair", "last known config that works", etc. loop)....he has a program that you enter all the distances between points of even a polygon-shaped piece of property and it would calc the acreage...that's all he did with it and that program wouldn't run on Win 10 (he said). He has a Win 10 machine for Word, Quickbooks, etc.

You'd think I'd given him a million bucks when I called to tell him it was fixed. :lol:

I have an insurance agency that still has Novel netware running.
We changed him over to a web GUI last year, pulling from the same database.
This year we moved the database over to Access, but used the same GUI, works great and a ton faster, and the old Windoze 98se is gone!
