What is the oldest operating system that you own? It has to be installed on physical hardware, not in a virtual machine. For me, it is Windows 2000 on an Acer TravelMate 2480 that originally came with Windows Vista. This is supplemented with Windows XP. Both are on 36.7 and 37.2 partitions respectively.

And this is no ordinary 2000 install either. It has Office 2007 as well as the latest supported FireFox for XP (52.9). It is also fully up to date, accomplished with Windows Update right before they took it down for 200/XP/Vista. It also has working drivers as well. Everything works from Intel Graphics to even wireless internet (using Boingo, which is software. not a USB adapter). To accomplish this, I just downloaded the 32bit XP drivers from the Acer support page for my laptop model.

Windows 3.11 on a maxed out 486 system here, the earliest era I find personally interesting 😆 XTs and stuff really don't interest me

If by own you mean have physical original copies of, then my oldest would be a set of Xenix 386 floppies! I have no clue if they even work (I've tried to install it on actual hardware before, but it's pretty finicky and limited in what it likes)

Check out some of my websites!
