A relative of mine is having major problems with his computer (malware infection), and is contemplating getting a new computer while giving me his old one. The problem though, is that his new computer most certainly will have Vista on it. I'm still on XP, which means that I'd have to run a Vista VM if he was to ask me for help. Should I get the free machine and deal with Vista or get no machine and re-install XP on it. (NOTE: He's one of those run IE6 and don't update Windows types).
