Even a new celeron computer is slower than molasses. Absolutely hate that processor.I upgrade/downgrade/sidegrade/rebuild my systems so often that my Windows installs don't have a chance to get stale lol
But back in the XP days I'd reinstall every few months, although to be fair that was the result of teenage me breaking the OS as often as it was actual issues with Windows.
My father though... Ran the same install of XP on his Gateway Celeron office computer from about 2002 right through to I helped him pick a new system in 2014 I can't even imagine how slow that fucking thing must have been towards the end, and it wasn't much to begin with.
