    I used Windows XP Pro SP3 32-bit as a main operating system until security updates for it ended in May 2019.

    I now use it for testing purposes only in my Dell OptiPlex 980 minitower:
    Intel Core i7-860 2.80 GHz quad core processor
    16 GB DDR3-1333 RAM
    500 GB SATA2 hard disk drive
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 graphics

    I run XP as my main OS on my old ThinkPad which I use pretty exclusively for writing and BBSing, but my in-laws gave me their old 2012 MacBook Pro for everyday use. On that I bounce between MacOS Catalina and Windows 7. At work I have to use Win10.

    i feel you i tried win10, its crap, btw you should use that thinkpad more than for writing, rn im using a t30 with a 1.8p4 1gb ram xp pro, amazing machine, for online browsing office tasks wich is what it was made for, of course not made for intensive software
