I don't have all the junk software that everyone is complaining about. I'm pretty sure my system predates that stuff. But, I'm tempted to install a later version of Windows on it. I've considered installing a server OS (like, say, WS12R2) and virtualize a workstation on it, but my needs have changed in the past two years. Maybe I'll image my W7P and install W10 on it, then use the image to create a VM. OTOH, I'm not sure I'd need the older OS, at this juncture. Anyway, Lenovo's hw is great.
