Windows XP should for sure be out of the question as the POS Support has 
now ended as well.

Windows 7 is still safe if you purchase the Extended Support package 
which I would recommend to the clients (although upgrading to Windows 10 
is still free if you know what you are doing)

For those having to support said clients then you should simply run 
Window 7 under Hyper-V which comes with Windows 10 anyway.

For those wanting to support 16bit Dos on 64bit Windows 10, then I 
recommend VDosPlus rather than Dosbox.

Thats all I got.
