Well the thread initially was about an Xp machine that can't run 7, or 8, let alone Vista.
I am using 7 on my main system for the time being.

As my previous post stated, about 30 fps on EOS for C2 games.
The os is fine, and not terribly dependent on the terminal.

That's what's amazing. An old system with XP doesn't run so much worse than a new system with Win7/8 on most things. Just shows you how much we need a different OS.

(edit: by different OS, I meant different to Microsoft. Imagine how fast modern computers would be without MS's lead weight).

Well that's 30 fps max.
I added some particles, and a text object, so that's not really taxing to the cpu.
I will say the gpu was a Nvidia with I think 512 mb.

So really the only thing that's amazing is that there was some proprietary drivers available.

Edit:
Also multiplayer works
