Right now I have a dual-boot setup in my computer with W10/XP installed on separate hard drives. I’ve done this since a few of my games don’t work on 10 and also having XP around provides some DOS compatibility. The problem is, when I replace my current 10+ year old desktop with a new gaming PC (which I plan to do soon since I want to move to PC gaming and away from consoles), I will no longer be able to do this as most of the new hardware wouldn’t have XP drivers. I can either move those games to an old XP laptop I recently got working (It seems to have decent enough specs to handle everything I want on high settings), or run the games inside a Win2k (Win2k doesn’t need to get online to activate and it works with all the games I want to run) VM on my new gaming PC. Which is better?Akinatorhttps://xender.vip/ https://testmyspeed.onl/

Personally, I’ve never gotten “reasonable” performance in a VM, but maybe that is just due to the hardware of the host machine I was running the VM on. You may find that a VM works well enough for you if you have a windows virtual desktop or a hosted xendesktop vdi
