Originally I wanted to move several programs from a very old Windows XP system. Though after doing some research (How do I transfer programs from my old computer to my new Windows 7 computer?) that seems unlikely.
So now I am interested in one of two options:
- Move XP and all Programs, files, etc. off of the old box and transplant them to a newer and faster box.
- Backup the system and virtualize it on a newer faster box that has Windows 7 on it.
Which option should I choose? Consider ease, cost and performance.
Also, are there any good tutorials or articles to walk me through the process?
