Microsoft Hardware Tax

Anything that ran on Win2k hardware generally would work with XP. The same with Vista, it would run Win 7 as they shared the same code base. Today a PC that runs 8.1 will run Win 10. That leaves me out in the cold for the technical preview as my tower only has Vista drivers. So it looks like Linux wins out especially as 7 runs sluggish on an SSD. Booting aside, elementary runs really responsively on a traditional spinning platter vs 7 on solid state media. I will be wiping 7, which increasingly I do not use, to replace with elementary OS Freya when out of beta.
