You don't have any XP machines running? Blasphemy you speak!!

 

Does virtually count?

 

Actually, I'm fixing up an old eMachine for my Sister that had been running XP -- I killed it by formatting the OS drive and installing W8RP which actually runs pretty well with just 2G of RAM. I plan to upgrade it to W8 for $40 in Oct for her. All she wanted was something to work on Word papers for some classes she's taking -- she can do it in Skydrive & keep her doc's in the Cloud (and thus no backup worries) and use Word via her Skydrive account. What I really liked is that W8 seems to really locks down security and hopefully I will not have to constantly clean "crap" off her computer like I've been doing since "forever".

Virtual is as good as physical. Of my, ahem...18 machines, only four are physical.

I've go 15 VM's plus 7 real (not counting the eMachine) -- should I also count our iPad? :)

 

Oh, crap -- I've got too much hardware!
