Try being the only person in your office (and likely for miles around) who was running Windows XP-Pro 64-bit, when everybody else had XP Pro 32-bit.

Can you say: "... nuances of drivers and app compatibility"?

After that three-year experiment, I was SO glad to move to a laptop with Windows 7 that was just like everybody else's.

When I moved from XP-Pro to Windows 7-Pro, I also moved from 32-bit OS to 64-Bit OS. I still have my old XP system, because Nikon stopped updating its scanner software for my Coolscan V. I have a workaround, and I can buy new software from a different vendor for about $300. But as long as that old XP system is running, I see no need to fork out my meager funds for new software. Like another poster said, I do not have it hooked to the Internet; although, I keep my anti-virus software up-to-date because it is connected to my home network via a hard-wire link. (The wireless is way too slow.)
