I may end up just keeping the several different systems. My Inspiron
9400 is WinXP (bought in 2006), and it's working. I bought the Vostro
3500 in 2011 with Win7 pro to keep abreast of the new OS and match the
ones we have on campus. I bought the Inspiron 15-R in 2013, running Win8
64-bit - upgraded it to 8.1 - and it is my current main computer. All
are seeing each other on the network, and I use them for different
things. For example, most of the genealogical stuff is on the Win7 pro
computer; but all of the Adobe Creative Cloud stuff is on the Win8.1
64-bit machine, along with all the accounting stuff.
