    I slapped boiling hot tar on his eyes, and I keep no personal info on this comp. If he wants to track the news I view, shrug.

    I'm putting together a new PC and I'm going to try Win 10 on it. :ack-1:

    I'll get another cheap version of 7 if 10 ends up being too much of a PITA. With 7 hitting the end of updates stage, it just seems like the time to take the plunge and hope 10 isn't too annoying.

    I've also been reading that Win 7 might not work well with some of the newer chips, and I'm deciding between a Ryzen 5 1600 and a Ryzen 5 2600 at the moment. It might not be important, but again, it's a push toward me trying 10.

    Microshit's Best & Brightest set for yet another multi decade effort that could be accomplished in 2 years by people possessing the actual skill set?

    Well....it looks like M$ is copying what someone else already did years ago.

    Edge is a memory hog and it sends what's on your PC to MS.

    Yeah, it was present until 98 or Me in the Windows folder. I still remember my first computer. It was already an old one and all that Win 3 disks!
