Of the 12 working, fast, computers in my house, two run 8.1 and one 7. The rest are XP, are not ideal for upgrade and won't be scrapped. For doing content creation, XP is actually preferred because the (many) bugs are well understood, it's fastest, and it doesn't tend to lock you out of your own stuff. All of them dual-boot Linux 'just in case' but that's a bridge too far if you want to do something quick and familiar. 10 looks good (if they can stop 'Bing' auto-searches) but evidently only three of ours will get it. So those will be the 3:9 proportions we contribute.
