Windows XP till this machine dies a natural death.

A recent hard drive reformat, new modem, cleaning of the keyboard and tower case, and only just the programs I need on it, has my system running great.  Since all I do is E-Mail, Web Browsing, and Word Processing, upgrading to Windows 7 would probably not have me doing new things.  In short, this computer does everything that I need it to do, and for it's age (8 years) works just fine.

I have a relative who is a computer engineer and we will just start swapping out hardrives, OS updates and other upgrades when the time is needed to do that.

I hear you brother. My machine is belting along just fine, too. Should Windows XP fück up, I will install Linux :-)

PS. Correction:  System is 6.5 years old, not 8 as originally posted.

That Linux comment reminded me of a joke from years ago when Windows 98 was out:

"The box said, "Windows 98 or better, so I installed Linux!!!!"   :D LOL!

Main system is Win 7 Pro x64 SP1.

Second PC and old laptop run Win XP Pro x86 SP3.

Occasionally I boot up a HD installed Ubuntu 10.10 x64.

On few occasions I use Live-CDs Knoppix, LinuxMint and PCLinuxOS.

Windows 7 + Ubuntu
Windows 7: everyday use like Web Browsing, Multimedia etc
Ubuntu: special works like Modify Locked files, Inspect folders which Windows deny access, access some networks, and finally scan windows for malware using my unix AntiVirus, recover data and other similar tasks.

I had a dual boot setup with Debian 6.0, and Windows 7, but, while reinstalling Debian to clean up some things I did to customize it, I forgot to set up the dual boot. So, I'm running Linux only until I get around to reinstalling Windows.
