Broom Pusher and
I would have NEVER get rid of Old Computers!!!
Of course, I had only one, out of nearly ten Machines since the Mid 1980's, until today.

It was in 2018 - April or May. I never seen one again.

I'll be hanging on to any Window 7 and 8 PCs for awhile yet. Some of my favorite and most used programs won't run on anything newer.

I am still running one W/98 machine, the XP machine I got from Bill, at least 5 W/7 machines and 2 W/11 machines. Most of the W/7 machines are hooked to TVs. They make better streamers than any smart TV and you are not trying to navigate with a couple of remotes.
I just got the W/11 machines, HP laptops, for $40 each and they threw in a printer/fax/scanner. It is ink jet and I may never use it. I have a bid in at the same place for an ASUS laptop for $15 (W/7) but I am not sure what I will do with it when I get it.
