13574RE: [fhctech] Donated computer
- May 31, 2013
XP is on its way out. Next year it won't be supported any longer so machines are being updated to Windows 7 according to our director. Some FHC are using Vista last I heard but are moving over to Windows 7.
"Please contact the FamilySearch Support Office for
the most current minimum standards.
"Donated hardware can be accepted as charitable
contributions but not as tithing-in-kind. If a donor needs
a receipt, it should be provided by the stake. Receipts
will be issued only for equipment that meets minimum
"Offers of donated software cannot be accepted unless
accompanied by valid license documentation.
"If funds are donated for the purpose of purchasing
a computer or printer for the family history center, the
hardware should be ordered through the FamilySearch
Support Office using the Family History Computer
Hardware and Software Order Form.
Send the completed form with a check to the
FamilySearch Support Office. For current prices of
computers or printers, please contact the FamilySearch
"For more information about donations, please see the
Family History Center Operations Guide or contact the
FamilySearch Support Office."
Personally, I'd accept nothing less then Window 7. XP is a upgrade liability.
I don't know as Windows 8 is supported yet. I don't know as FS ever supported Vista.
