How to use hardware wisely? can I use a mini and iMac 2008 screen

文本:

too many apples! My iMac is nice to look at when it isn’t running… if I upgrade my mac mini could I connect them and use the iMac 2008 as a monitor?
Has anyone done this?
Also a different and mostly unrelated question:
regarding upgrading mac mini with dual storage could I use bootcamp on one drive and mac os on a new ssd? I stopped using my old laptop that I have bootcamp online because I didn’t want to go online with old programs that I can’t give up. In other words: to stay safe I have bootcamp with old excel etc on and never go online with it. whew
I have heard that having windows / bootcamp even if you aren’t using it, opens you up to viri!!! I haven’t been right since microsoft xl! miss it so!!
I go online on a mac running only mac os. (like I said… too many apples)
By “dual” I am wondering if that really means the systems are separate enough for different (ancient) operating system that would never be vulnerable or accessible to the outside world.
OK stop Laughing!!!

+UPDATE RE: USING old iMac as a monitor: why didn’t I think of that…. looking on the apple website. Dan pointed me in the right direction and I found these specifics.
