I recently found an old computer with 1gb of ram and a slow processor, and I am looking for a windows to install on it. But I can't make up my mind. Should I install Windows 10, or are there any faster operating systems?
Does anyone know which Windows is the fastest?
XP will easily run on 1GB. Official updates ended in 2014 if I remember correctly unless you're a POS, so there are risks if you were intending connecting to the internet.
I've got a 15/16 year old PC that runs quite happily, albeit slowly, and with an old version of Avast that has current definitions. Most modern software will throw a wobbler - I had to ditch Malwarebytes - but current Spywareblaster and Superantispyware are ok.
Browser's another problem. I use an old version of Firefox.
I have Office XP Pro with 2007 compatibility pack, which works fine with Office 2013 which I have on my main PC.
It's a case of if you want some fun and your up for a challenge, have a go. If not, bin it.
