Re: What does it run?

"People stopped dual-booting 20 years ago."

Not true. More like 7 years ago for my home rig, the problem being the cost and RAM limitations of consumer grade gear.

For example bumping my 2010 PC from the supplied 2GB RAM to 4GB cost USD 50, but 8GB was going to cost USD 200. Yes, I did manage to run a few VMs within 4GB but it was a tight fit for the stuff I was trying to do.

Roll on to 2014 and things got a lot better. I was able to stuff 16GB into 3 systems which only officially supported 8GB and affordably too.
