MAME also runs perfectly well on XP, but it is not mentioned on the fact that presumably no-one is running XP anymore.

What that page doesn't tell you however is that MAME no longer supports older video cards as of an update during 0.180, those of which do not support non-power-of-two textures, and will bump you down to non-accelerated GDI compatibility mode in that case and probably turn a 1990s-era game into a slideshow in the process on machines with on older CPUs e.g. Pentium 4. In some cases OpenGL may still work at an acceptable speed but most likely MAME may still give a warning about the video card not supporting PBO if the card doesn't support that either.
