Anyway. Next question. After deserting Windows about 4 years ago, and emigrating to Mac. I find that I am really missing some software I have, that won't run on a Mac. So I am building yet another PC from scratch. The very first one I ever built, actually ran on Dos 6 and Windows 3.1.
Most of my software seems to be for Windows XP. For example. Adobe Premiere Pro. And my Serif Pageplus ver. 6. Which was my favourite version. Was made for Windows 95/98/NT4/2000. Although the last O/S I used it with was Vista Ultimate.
Will these install and update on a new PC with Windows 8.1 or perhaps ver. 10 when it comes out?
BTW. I only joined the forum yesterday, which was my 70th birthday. So many thanks for your birthday wishes.
Thank you. I'm still trying to decide whether I actually need quad core or not. At my age, I won't exactly be charging round the Galaxy, zapping aliens or zombies. So max speed is not too essential. Just a bit of DTP and video editing. And do I really need more than a 1tb hdd? I'm thinking perhaps not.
