I have 2 computers, one is an altar of (current) gaming and the other one has been sitting in my closet for over a year now. The problem is that my primary OS has Windows 8.1 installed and if you enjoy certain older games that require DirectDraw, you're shit out of luck. Now mind you, there are jury rigged workarounds but it's a hassle and I'd rather play these older games in their native OS.
Enter the KVM Switch. Now if you don't know what it is, it's basically a way to connect two computers with one monitor. Some have VGA attachments, DVI, USB, etc etc. The point is, with a press of a clicker you can access two computers, laptops or towers, hell they have some versions that can even connect to a video game console, Now if you've been reading this far into this topic you either A.) Know what I'm talking about or B.) want to know more C.) genuinely enjoy my topics (ha) I'll post some direct links if you're confused.
So my question to all of you is.... If you had 2 computers, What would your preferred 2 OS's be? We know I have Windows 8.1 and the other one is Windows 7. However, even 7 has conflicts with older games (I don't mean DOS, it even has issues with 95' & 98'). I'm starting to lean towards XP, on my second OS.
So give my your thoughts, sage advice and criticism.
