Resurrecting My Windows XP Box
I can get along OK, for the most part, without it. But, there are a few instances where I have no choice but to either have a PC or a Mac in operation. For example, if I want to edit RAW files from my camera, the software is written for PC/Mac. On the occasion that I go around fixing computers for money, sometimes I need another Windows computer to work some magic on client drives. Or to test hardware on a machine known to operate.
I can't use my wife's and daughter's computers without risking their computers getting infected or messed up with cruft in the long term. As much as I would like to declare myself free from the traditional desktop, I cannot.
Why not buy a new one? Stop it, you're killing me.
