I understand your upgrade issues. When I built this machine three years ago it took me most of three weeks to get MOST of my software doing what I wanted. The old machine ran XP rather well for a number of years. I skipped Vista entirely. But it was time to stop waiting on my hardware and I took the time to get a computer I enjoy using.

I primary income is from computer consulting. I help people make the fix or upgrade decision every week. My message to them is almost always: the time to upgrade is when the current machine fails beyond reasonable repair or you get tired of waiting on the computer.

Some have legacy applications that are an issue. For some VBox or VPC is an answer. Some just have to invest in new software and the learning curve.
