Nah, not likely. 5 years ago was 2004, XP came out in 2001, matey. :P It probably has XP on it.

Let's hope at least.

Yea.. it's XP... but not much is worth salvaging... it was a ~$300 barebones dell package when they bought it... so you can probably imagine it's a little outdated... I have an old XP disk from my previous computer... will probably just use that. I appreciate the build, I emailed it to my mom... she has no idea what it is, but the price fits what they were going to spend on a lesser system..

Yeah, that build will serve them well. Just use that XP disk, and you're golden.
