My Ultra 2 happily runs the newest version of Solaris. The Ultra 2 is
probably almost 10 years old. No 10-year-old PeeCee hardware will run
the newest version of Windows.
Spending $300 on a new PeeCee may get you something designed to run a
"modern" version of Windows, but it still isn't going to be that fast.
Better to run a reasonable OS.
There is no bloat like MS bloat.
