                My desktop is dualbooted with Windows XP and Windows Vista.


                How?
                as for me I have XP. I like it hasn't failed me much. provided I don't have viruses (damn Virtumonde) Big fix I'm not sure what that's suppose to do. And McAffee is a bitch, it just wont up date or let me register (I'm trying to shut up the lil toaster on the bottom right of my screen.

                I'm scared of 7 think it'll fuck up like Vista.

                          I have a lot of options too. I have 95 for playing DOS games. My main computer has 7. There's a Vista connected to the TV upstairs. I also have a 2000 and an XP that I keep around for certain programs, plus I just like those versions.

                            I have a dual pane, storm resistant tempered glass window, why?

                            In all cerealness though I have 7, and after seeing 8 I'm trying to keep this laptop running as long as possible. I recently purchased an old Windows game I loved as a kid but was bummed to find out it's not compatible with 7! That's doesn't make sense to me.

                                It makes total sense when you understand the infrastructure of Windows. Windows 95/98 at its core is MS DOS based. Windows 2000 and up are NT based. Windows will try to emulate (trick) older programs to work on the NT kernel, but they are two different worlds. If you right click/properties on the EXE of the program, you will see "compatibility". A lot of programs work okay doing this, but many games don't because they do complex things like directly access the hardware on the computer. The enhanced security of NT and changes in IRQs makes this impossible. The older programs just can't communicate with Windows 8 and the hardware like they need to. You can sometimes get them to work, but you won't have sound or graphic acceleration. You're better off getting an old computer with Windows 98 just for the old games.

                                  Barring that, you can use DOSBox. Not as simple as double click the icon, but I bet you can finger it out.
