in Milliways
Regardless of how old it may be the Core2 architecture is anything but retro. It is more or less the same thing as Intel 10th Gen Core CPUs with less cores and clockspeed. An E6600 from 2006 runs Windows 10 just fine today. I know, because I am setting up a Win98/Win7 dual boot on an E6600 these …
