The best plan is for you to export your data to a gedcom on your old 
computer and then import it into whatever program you plan on using on 
your new computer.   I would strongly recommend AGAINST using Family 
Tree Maker, as it causes us an immense amount of pain and effort to 
correct the errors that program creates when we import data into our 
SGGEE databases.   My personal favorite is Legacy, but you can also use 
PAF, and there may be others that are also acceptable from the 
standpoint of not causing errors.
