Yeah I don't particularly want to go online with my dated XP either (not that the ancient Toshiba running the said XP really has any need for such either)

Hmm. OK. I'll bite. Here are all the systems I run at home:

Workstation
  • Primary OS: Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon Edition
  • Secondary OS (for games): Windows 10 Pro (Anniversary Edition)
HTPC's (3x)
  • Ubuntu 16.04 Server Edition (so there is no GUI) with Kodi configured to run directly ontop of Openbox.

Virtualized Server:
Proxmox (Debian Jessie based) with the following Containers/VM's
  • Ubuntu 16.04 Server Container: Dedicated to SMB Network Shares
  • Ubuntu 14.04 Server Container: Dedicated to NetAtalk (Apple file sharing and time machine)
  • Ubuntu 14.04 Mythbuntu Container: (MythTV PVR Backend)
  • Ubuntu 16.04 Server Container: Dedicated DHCP server for HD Homerun tuners on separate network.
  • Ubuntu 16.04 Server Container: General use server (offline downloads, archive files, etc.)
  • Ubuntu 16.04 Server Container: Dedicated SFTP server
  • Ubuntu 14.04 Server Virtual Machine: Mounts NAS folders, performs reverse encyption and presents encrypted files to Crashplan backup container.
  • Ubuntu 16.04 Server Container: Dedicated to Crashplan backup application.
  • Ubuntu 16.04 Server Container: Dedicated to Ubiquiti Unifi application to manage my two Wifi AP's
  • Ubuntu 16.04 Server Container: Dedicated to TeamSpeak3 server
  • Ubuntu 16.04 Server Container: Dedicated to NTOPNG network statistics collection. (in process, having problems with getting container to listen in promiscuous mode)
  • Ubuntu 16.04 Server Container: Dedicated to CSGO Server.
Router:
  • pfSense (BSD based Router/Firewall OS)

Work Issued Laptop
  • Windows 7 Enterprise
  • Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon Edition (Booted from USB stick when needed)

So those are my own systems, but I also manage a few more in my house:

Fiance's 27" iMac
  • OS X El Capitan

Fiance's Laptop
  • Primary OS: Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon Edition
  • Secondary OS: Windows 10 Pro (Anniversary Edition)
Stepson's Desktop
  • Primary OS: Windows 10 Pro (Anniversary Edition)
  • Secondary OS: Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon Edition
And then there's a handful of iOS (stepsons iPad, Fiance's iPhone) and Android (My Nexus 5x and 2013 Nexus 7) devices as well.

Arch Linux - my laptop - most likely moving to a Chromebook after laptop dies.
Arch Linux - primary work laptop - Latitude E7470 - with Win10 VM for Office 2013 until the migration to 365 is complete. Then Windows 10 can die in a fire.
Arch Linux - secondary work laptop - XPS 13
Windows 10 Home - wife's laptop - she's going Chromebook after grad school whenever the current laptop dies
iOS 10 - wife's iPhone 6S - she hates it with a passion. She'll be JUMPing to Android soon enough.
iOS 10 - son's iPad
Android 6.0.1 - my LG G5
CyanogenMod 10.1 (Android 4.1.2) - old slow ass Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 - used strictly for Google Opinion Rewards :D

What do you use Windows 3.1 for?

We need it for a specific low level program that drives a couple dozen pieces of custom hardware. The transfer of commands has to be within a few microseconds at most, and most modern OS's can't guarantee that low level of latency. An RTOS could, but no one wants to spend the time/money to re-write the software from scratch. And yes, the PC in question is isolated from the Internet, for obvious reasons.

I had no idea that old Windows 3.1 systems had lower latency I/O than modern systems.

Or is it just that the old 16bit code doesn't run well on modern operating systems?

I live in a Windows World!

Gaming PC: Dual-boot with Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 Pro 1607
Work PC: Windows 7 Enterprise SP1
Surface Pro 4: Windows 10 Pro 1511
Phone: What operating system?

I would imagine it is a combination of increased complexity in the operation of modern operating systems. Things like the kernel and command queuing, the scheduler, etc.

Yeah, Linux has special low latency kernels for stuff like that, but that - again - would require a rewrite of the code.

I wonder why they didn't do it on NT to begin with. Would probably have been more reliable than 3.1

Interesting, it's been so long since I've used 3.1 that I don't think I could even remember how to navigate it now...

I'm sure it would come back quickly.

I may fire it up in a VM. (Or maybe in DosBox? Will it run in DosBox?) For old times sake to play around.

NT didn't exist yet. Our next system used VMS/VAX, which was essentially brought out by MSFT and the developers went on to create...Windows NT.

^ Personal, below are work machines

About a dozen desktops (Mac Pros of various Intel generations) running MacOSX, mostly the last 3 versions (Yosem, El Capt, Sierra), includes Avid machines, Protools multitrack, Adobe Cloud seats, Cinema 4D, etc.
Windows Vista on the older Maya render machines
Fedora/Red Hat on the 16 blade render farm and Smoke machine
Windows 7 on the Chyron/Character Generator
Windows 7 on the broadcast server and livestreamer
Windows 7 on the disk recorder
Windows 8 on the laptop for the DMX setup
Windows XP (heh) on the Midi controlled lightboard laptop setup, this machine never connects to the lan OR the internet, thank god.
Windows XP for the switcher. Also not online.
Couple of iMacs for the interns, no idea what's on them.

We tend to not update a lot of the production machines, especially if they're not online/connected to the internet... uptime and stability is more important than OS updates. So when it works, we firewall it off or leave it off the lan and never allow it to update. If it goes online, it gets updated on regular patch cycles.

Some of the machines are also on a separate fiber network, like the render farm. They tend to stay in their own little corner away from the other machines and aren't connected to the other machines on the LAN. Everything that does need to have an output does so via SDI throughout the studio.
