Going Retro with Windows
I currently run a Windows 10 laptop as well as an iPad Pro.
10 or so years ago I made a living with video editing and converting cine to video. As well as a thriving little desktop publishing business.
I recently dug out a load of relevant software that I used to use. As well as some pre Windows 7 hardware which is far to useful and sophisticated to just dump. Only problem is that there are no up to date drivers for the gear.
As I also have a well featured desktop PC as well. I have decided to install Windows XP Pro which I recently obtained a copy on eBay.
To elaborate. I have a brilliant Canon scanner that can scan negatives and transparencies as well as prints. But no recent drivers.
I have DTP and graphics software that would cost up to £400 each to replace.
And I will also be able to continue to use a favourite piece of kit. A Sony minidisc recorder. Which also has no modern drivers.
Feel free to respond but please keep any negative or derisive comments to yourself.
