Don't waste your money trying to upgrade your Windows XP PC

Tony Bradley | April 8, 2014
With the end of Windows XP support from Microsoft imminent, perhaps you've finally made the (very wise) decision to stop using the venerable operating system. I commend you. However, if you're planning to simply install a newer operating system on your existing hardware, you should reconsider.

The bottom line is simple: if your PC is more than a couple years old you will have to invest in more than just a new operating system in order to make it reasonably functional. You will be much happier with whichever version of Windows you choose if you just buy a new PC with the operating system pre-loaded.

If you really want to just use the hardware you have without upgrading anything, there's always Linux.
