Oil or Latex paint on the exterior of house?

I am painting my house soon, and did the denatured alcohol test. One site said after applying, the latex would get tacky, but when I did it, it didn't get tacky. It did take a little bit of color off, but not a lot. Since the paint is 20-ish years old, could it be that it is just too hard to get tacky when doing the test?

How much color comes off when doing the test on oil paint? it's old enough that it has a powdery coat on it, maybe I need to do the test again to see if more color comes off of the same spot. Anyone have experience with this?
