Macsyma 2.3 in the modern world?

I'm in the process of building some Win 7 Pro 64 bit machines and am
wondering if anyone has tried using Macsyma 2.3 in this environment. I'm
curious about both a straight install and/or running it through the XP
simulator. Has anyone any experience that they can share with me? I
think that Macsyma has some 16 bit DOS parts that might get in the way
with it even in 32 bit modes.

I know about and use Maxima and believe that it's probably a better
choice for work in the modern world but there is nostalgia to honor.
There's something nice about Macsyma in that it reminds us how much and
how good things were a long time ago.

Thanks fort any information you can provide.
