    It will be VERY quick. Basically, I just want to know what OS you are running, and if you're comfortable repairing/maintaining a PC?

    You might want to correct the spelling mistakes in the title and the survey (eg. It should be 8-10 instead of 810, backing not baking[I hope]; > £90 not £90 > and a multitude of others).
    Also, I have multiple PCs each running multiple OSs, but the question on which operating system you use does not allow multiple selections. Edit: same for Q5.

    Done. Most mistakes are corrected; the only ones I spotted were "service", "operating" and "varies".

    I felt your choice of options very restrictive

    Some of the questions were a bit messy because you made too many assumptions, but I think it works for what you're doing.

    I have an old computer that runs Windows XP, but I have it on an ancient Pentium 4 with old ISA cards, floppy drives, etc... all the stuff I don't have on my newer computers. I use it for some specialised music equipment and old computer games that don't work well on modern machines. But I keep it isolated from the network and don't have any personal information on it.

    I'm currently typing this on an old laptop that my Grandmother was going to throw away because Windows got corrupted and she lost her recovery discs. Even the repair shop she took it to told her that the computer was toast and she needed a new one. But I just installed Linux on it, and now it works well. It's a little slow on TSR if I have more than one tab open in Chrome, but it works a lot better than it did when she owned it. It's 5 years old.

    Two of my computers run Windows 10, as they were already running Windows 8.1 and I saw no reason not to upgrade them. One is another old laptop that's a lot more powerful than the one with Linux, and the other is a powerful desktop computer that I use for gaming and it's about 2 years old.

    Finally, I have one computer with Windows 7 that's assembled of spare parts and unused Windows license keys, and I just use it for one or two applications that don't work well after Windows 8 due to Metro.

    Yes, I know, I have too many computers. Oh, and I'm comfortable maintaining and repairing a PC.

    Generally most people replace XP with a distribution of Linux, something that can run on older hardware such as Linux Lite.

    Also, the link you provided me does not work.

    Thanks for your time
