What's the oldest version of Windows you are using?
I saw this question on another forum and thought I would ask here.

I'm using Win 7 on a laptop I use to login to work from home (oldest platform).

I use Win Server 2008 for a major app I run at work.

I use Win 10 at my desk and my personal laptop at home.

Current place of work, there are a few 2003 servers!

Just installed Windows 95 on a virtual box for another user to use some old arse piece of equipment.

We are still on Win7 at work. The kicker is that it's the 32-bit version. I curse the person that decided to downgrade an i5-3470 CPU with 6GB RAM to 32-bit weekly. I do too much large volume Excel work to be stuck in 32-bit.

MIL has a laptop with Vista.

We just retired a very old A/S 400. Thing was probably over 20 years old.

Man frick windows 10. My laptop is worthless because every time I need to use it there are updates to download and restart. Plus it offers no added utility over previous generations. They just moved shite around to say it’s “new”.

I use a laptop with XP at work. Really only use excel, word, and outlook. Its a little slow at times, but nothing that keeps me from working.

So it’s just my imagination that it always updates every time I need to use it?

Personally, or that I support?

I work in IT, so I support some servers running Server 2003. I don't think there's any XP devices we still support, though at my previous job there were some still. Windows 7 is the oldest client-side OS I have to support. There might be some older Mac OS versions out there, but honestly I could not say for certain as I haven't really done an audit of those.

The oldest OS I have on my personal devices is 10, as most were recently imaged/built anyway.

Win7 on a laptop, prefer Win10 over it.

re: What's the oldest version of Windows you are using?
macOS is my main OS

I use a Windows 7 virtual machine for any Windows apps I require.
I also have a Windows XP virtual machine because I have a few infrequently used apps that need XP.

I'm posting this from a Panasonic Toughbook CF-73 running XP.Today is the first time I've fired it up in probably ten years. Firefox updated the version I'm running(3.6.9) and pleaded with me to download the new version. My wifi is working great with my rather new router, my local newspaper's site won't load, but other than the bookmark not being right the new version of Tigerdroppings is working fine. The resolution on the old boy kind of sucks though.

AS/400 was GOAT server. Our new iSeries has 26tb of flash drive space in 4 u’s. When I started working on the 400 it had less than 26gb of Magnetic HD and took up around 175 sqft.


Yes, I’m old
